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.
