What is Market Imbalance and why is it important to you?
Market Imbalance is also known as Improper Price Action (IPA) or Fair Value Gap (FVG).
It happens when price moves very quickly in one direction, say up, with no selling pressure. This creates a "gap" in the wicks of the candles.
E.g. if the last closed candle is number 1 and the one before that is number 2 etc, then Imbalance is described like this:
Candle 1's wick has a gap between it and candle number 3's gap (please see the screenshots below).
All this happens as the Banks place huge orders on the Forex Markets and create this fast movement - but - they have to go back and "mitigate" these big moves at some point - and that is when price will return and "fill in" the gap.
As a Trader you can can use these gaps as possible targets for your Take Profit Levels.
The challenge is that, although we know these gaps will be filled, we do not know when. Sometines it is minutes, sometimes it is hours, or even days depending on the timeframe you are trading on.
Works very well in conjunction with the Trend Continuation Alerts Indicator and Consolidation Breakout Indicator.
Obviously, we all know the markets are unpredictable – otherwise we would all be successful all the time.
This is still Forex and you will not win every trade. Practice on Demo before trading with live money and always use good money management.

I recommend that you only take a trade if there is a minimum Reward to Risk Ratio of 2:1 available. Personally, I only take trades of 3:1 or more.
You could also "filter" your trades using higher timeframe trend, or using an exponential moving average e.g. 100EMA
- Please make sure you adjust the settings for the timeframe and pair you are trading.

This sets the minimum number of pips of imbalance you want to be shown. Obviously this needs to be higher for higher timeframes.
The lower the value, more signals, but less accurate.
