The indicator seeks for local highs and local lows. A local high/low is defined by three candles, if the high of the middle candle is higher than its neigbours it is forming a local high, if the low is lower than the neigbours it forms a local low.
We can do a break out trade if the price exceeds a local high or low and we can see a trend if the lows are rising or the highs are falling.
Each local high/low is also a resistance or support, the more the point has been hit in the past, the stronger it works as resistance or support. The indicator counts how many times a price has been hit and displays the count in a color code from white to red.
The parameters are used to reduce the number of horizontal lines displayed.
The horizontal lines have the colors White,Yellow,DodgerBlue,Orange,Red where White is the wakest and red the strongest. The commont for a line displays how many relative highs or lows are hitting them.
Depending on the time frame of a trade and depending on the chart data we must find good parameters to display resistance zones, it varies from no line at all and lines at each price level.
Horizontal lines are built from all candles from the chart, not only from the visible ones.
We can use the resistance zones to set limit orders.
Use at your own risk or with demo money.
