An inside candle is simply when the current candle's high is lower than the previous candle's high, and the current candle's low is higher than the previous candle's low.
Once price compression is identified, the indicator draws a range based on the highest high and the lowest low of the two inside candles.
1) A break above the range is .
2) A break below the range is .
The script ALSO paints candles in blue that are likely to become strong horizontal S/R levels. This is, again, based on a candle pattern.
1) This indicator is only meant to be used on BITMEX:XBTUSD (on the 4h or 1h chart).
2) You will have to apply some discretion to profitably trade with this indicator. Use SFPs and horizontal S/R levels to judge if a breakout is worth trading.
Finally, use the indicator at your own risk. I am not responsible for any losses you may incur.
My objective with this indicator g is to hopefully give you something that you can build upon, and NOT a script to blindly copy trade.
The concept of market compression is powerful. There are countless ways in which you can build a system around it.
This is just the tip of the iceberg.
