About the Candle Strength Indicator

The Candle Strength Indicator determines base on the candle formation, the percentage of chance in which direction the next candle will go.

The 2 boxes on the right above corner will show you the strength of the current candle in real time. Just below, the time until the next candle opens.

The histogram helps to visualize the strength of each candle. Its 2 moving averages show the average of the candle strength, which helps you to detect trends and take only the trades with the highest probability.

In order to not miss strong candles, the indicator sends notifications directly to your email account or smartphone few seconds before a new candle opens.

How to trade

You basically want to take a trade few seconds before or after a new candle opens if the current candle strength is relatively high and correlates with the current market trend.

If for example the current candle strength is 64% bullish and 36% bearish, the next candle will probably go up.
