HOW DOES IT WORK?

CONFLUENCE OF TECHNICAL LEVELS

This tool assigns a certain "weight" to each indicator according to its class and time range. This "weight" is propagated to adjacent price levels – even if those levels do not contain any indicator – to highlight the influence of the force of attraction generated by the presence of important indicators such as a simple moving average or a Pivot Point level in a daily range. The algorithm's logical structure intensifies the signal's strength in those areas where several indicators converge – so-called technical confluence zones.

HOW TO READ THE CHART?

The tool detects and draws the price levels where indicators are placed, highlighting those levels where several indicators converge simultaneously. The length of each bar indicates the intensity of the resistance or support levels generated by the technical indicators. We have also implemented a color gradient to intensify the bars' tonality where the Technical Confluences Detector finds more resistance to price advance. The white lines represent areas where no technical indicator is detected and where the price can move with ease.
