How To Use

When the directional movement index indicator shows more buying pressure than selling pressure, the candle will appear lime green. This indicates bullish buying pressure.
When the directional movement index indicator shows more selling pressure than buying pressure, the candle will appear red. This indicates bearish selling pressure.
When the directional movement index indicator shows the same amount of buy and sell pressure, the candle will appear blue. This indicates neutral buy/sell pressure.

Use the color changes to see if there is more buying or selling to pinpoint reversals and understand current market buying. Wait to enter or exit positions until the candles turn the opposite color.
