“Trading in the direction of a strong trend reduces risk and increases profit potential.”

Buying/Selling Pressure & Trend Strength/Direction (Expo) identifies the current buying and selling pressure which easily can be compared to each other to get a feel about if the buyers or the sellers dominate the market. The indicator is also used to determine when the price is trending strongly and where there is a high probability for a pullback or trend reversal.

  • Red line = Selling Pressure
  • Green line = Buying Pressure

Limit Value — Trend Strength

  • 0-200 — Absent or Weak Trend
  • 200-400 — Strong Trend
  • 400-600 — Very Strong Trend
  • 600-1000 — Extremely Strong Trend (High probability for a pullback or trend reversal)The limit values can differ some from crypto/currencies/stocks/indices, you can adjust the limits so that it matches the instrument. (but in general, the standard limit works perfectly).

The indicator displays the following:

  • Buy/Sell pressure.
  • When you should start looking for support/resistance levels.
  • Momentum.
  • Trend & which strength the trend has.
  • Geometric trend strength (Green/Red Triangles).
  • “Heads-up” pullback/reversal – signals (Thicker buy/sell lines).

 Geometric trend is a unique way to calculate trend strength and does only occur in specific circumstances. When it does, the trend is extremely strong or it’s a sign of trend exhaustion. It’s always good to start looking for potential reversal points when the market is in this mode, especially if a major support/resistance levels/zones are close.

♦ “Heads-up” pullback/reversal – signals identify areas where a pullback or a reversal can occur, and if this signal comes when the buying/selling pressure is above the limit value 600 a pullback/reversal is likely.

All types of oscillators produce divergences and so does Buying/Selling Pressure & Trend Strength/Direction (Expo). Divergences occur when the oscillator deviates from the trending price action. Bullish divergence is then when the trending price makes a lower low but the oscillator makes a higher low. Bearish divergence is then when the trending price makes a higher high but the oscillator makes a lower high.
