Color Candles Identify the Major Trend

The indicator includes two parts.

Part I: Color Candles Show the Major Trend

Color candles is to identify the market state by color candlesticks.

As shown in the screenshots, if the color is Aqua, the market is in a state when you should place long orders or exit short orders. If the color is Tomato, it is the time to place short orders or exit long orders.

If the color is changing, it is better to wait for its completion (until the current bar is closed).

Part II: Draw bands

The inner bands is defined as safe area, and the outer bands is for close orders.

Trading strategy as below:

  • if the color is Aqua, and price is in the inner bands ,place a long order , when price cross outer bands, it is time to close order.
  • if the color is Tomato, and price is in the inner bands,place a short order ,when price cross outer bands, it is time to close order.
Note: only entry market when price in the inner bands.this is very important.
