It has two main lines (Up and Down), as well as an additional one (Balance).
The main market entry signal is activated when Up and Down lines are crossed.

If the Balance line is below zero when opening a long position, then you most probably trade against the trend. The same is true for a short position if the Balance line is above zero.
