Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Similar idea based on an article by Lance Beggs, they color based upon where it closes in relation to the current and previous bar's range, with nine possible outcomes depending on whether it closes in the upper third, middle third, or lower third of the current bar's range and whether it closes above the previous bar's high, within the previous bar's range, or below the previous bar's low.

Is "" an indicator or a bar type?

Nevermind! I just tried opening the ".cs" file and Avast! Anitvirus told me it was a "suspicious" file. I've deleted it from my computer.

After all, it's what you learn AFTER you know it all, that counts!

Great Chart - heres my take

This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Hi Aargorn

I have a few thoughts about the market moving by pushing and absorbing in order to move a particular way.

The push are orders that hit the bid or offer. Absorbing occurs as limit orders are lifted to soak up counter moves.

A solid move in one direction occurs when, for example, buyers hit the offer and raise the price. Absorbtion then occurs as buyers lift their limit orders to cap the move down.

So in your chart buyers are hitting the market and moving it up combined with the use limit orders to absorb any down moves. Limit orders and hiting are used by aggressive parties to move the market.

What I have been struggling with is a clear way to see this on a chart. It can be seen on the time and sales and Blooms Tape is my shape thread covers alot of material about order flow (which side is moving, which is weakening).

Any chart ideas would be welcomed - and thanks for sharing your chart. Great topic and ideas.
