The TCI (Technical Confluences Indicator) is a tool to locate and point out those price levels where there is a congestion of indicators, moving averages, Fibonacci levels, Pivot Points, etc. Knowing where these congestion points are located is very useful for the trader, and can be used as a basis for different strategies.
HOW TO READ THE CHART?
Confluence of technical levels
This tool assigns a certain amount of “weight” to each indicator, and this “weight” can influence adjacents price levels. This means that one price level without any indicator or moving average but under the influence of two “strongly weighted” levels accumulate more resistance than their neighbours. In these cases, the tool signals resistance in apparently empty areas.
The tool detects and draws those price levels in which the confluences of indicators and key levels are recorded.
Blank lines represent areas where the price can move without technical resistance.
The levels with the highest assigned weight of resistance are drawn with the darker colour, this colour being degraded as the influence of the maximum levels decreases.
You can see which indicators are within each price level by placing the cursor on the level. The explanation uses a code that indicates:
- Recent maximums and minimums
- Round numbers. Round numbers have a psychological effect on traders, so we assign the finished price levels at 0, 00 and 000 some degree of resistance.
- Short-term highs and lows
- Pivot Points
- Moving averages
- Bollinger bands
- Fibonacci retracements
HOW TO USE IT?
With the TCI tool, you can easily locate areas where the price can find a support zone or resistance zone and make trading decisions. If you are a short-term trader, you will find entry points for counter-trend strategies and hunt a few points each time. If you are a medium- and long-term trader, this tool will allow you to know in advance the price levels in which a medium / long-term trend can stop your travel and rest, where to undo positions or where to increase your position.
