The indicator follows specific rules to determine when a new high or low is created. If the current range is considered bullish (meaning the most recent breakout was to the topside), the indicator will only update the low if a candle's body falls below the current low. However, if the current range is bearish (most recent breakout to the downside), the indicator will only update the high if a candle's body rises above the current high.
When a range is identified as bullish, the indicator will continue updating the high until a swing high is formed, denoting the high of the range. The high will only change if a candle's body surpasses the previous high. The low, on the other hand, will be updated based on the last time a candle's body falls below a previous candle's low. The lowest low after this condition is met will be assigned as the low of the range.
Conversely, when a range is identified as bearish, the indicator will continue updating the low until a swing low is formed, denoting the low of the range. The low will only change if a candle's body falls below the previous low. The high, in this case, will be updated based on the last time a candle's body rises above a previous candle's high. The highest high after this condition is met will be assigned as the high of the range.
Swing highs are determined by having lower highs to the left and right, while swing lows have higher lows to the left and right. These swings are used to determine the final high or low of a bullish or bearish range, respectively.
Tis Indicator differs from other indicators by incorporating this concept to track market structure. The indicator assumes that significant market players sell before making heavy purchases in bullish ranges and buy before selling heavily in bearish ranges. The lines on the chart represent prior highs and lows, as well as the current updated highs and lows based on this theory. By using this indicator, one can gain insights into the structure of price movement and potentially identify bullish or bearish continuations. It can also provide confluence when analyzing multiple timeframes to validate trend-following strategies.
