These candles should not be used by themselves...
Count of previous bars above or below a chosen Exponential Moving Average. Typically price reconnects with well defined EMAs regularly. If the price has been above/below an EMA for too long, you can expect a reconnect in a short order and bet on mean reversion strategies.

Do not trade mean reversion during any...

This oscillator also includes a squeeze feature on the center-line, based on...
