Delta Zones Buy/Sell Pressure

Script Description:

Delta Zones Buy/Sell Pressure Indicator


The "Delta Zones Buy/Sell Pressure" indicator, created by the original author "scarf", is a technical tool that unveils key areas of buying and selling pressure in the market. This indicator utilizes the concept of Delta, calculating differences between open, close, high, and low prices. When these differences exceed a threshold determined by the user-defined standard deviation, areas of intense buying (indicated by green boxes) and selling pressure (indicated by red boxes) on the chart are identified.

How It Works:

The indicator calculates Delta using various combinations of candle prices to determine buying and selling pressure. When Delta surpasses a certain level, indicated by the user-defined standard deviation, visual signals in the form of boxes on the chart are generated. These boxes highlight specific areas where buying or selling pressure is particularly strong, aiding traders in identifying potential entry and exit points in the market.

How to Use:

* When a green box is drawn, it indicates strong buying pressure in the market. This can be interpreted as a signal to consider long positions.

* When a red box is drawn, it indicates strong selling pressure in the market. This can be interpreted as a signal to consider short positions.

* Use these signals in combination with your own analysis and risk management strategies to make informed trading decisions.


What makes this indicator original is its unique approach to identifying specific areas of buying and selling pressure. By calculating Delta in multiple ways and utilizing standard deviation as a filter, this indicator provides clear and concise visual signals about market activity. The combination of these features distinguishes it as a valuable tool for traders seeking a better understanding of market behavior. This modification differs from the original by displaying the information on the price chart with horizontal bars, below each delta, instead of an oscillator at the bottom similar to the volume indicator.
