Supply And Demand
This supply and demand indicator uses sessions, volume spikes, higher timeframe price action and other volume calculations to spot areas on the chart where price will likely react. From the 1 minute and below charts to the daily and up charts, you can get excellent levels for any timeframe.
For the ultimate trading experience, make sure to use the Buy Sell Indicator along with Supply And Demand and wait for a signal to come in at or near the supply and demand levels. Scalp or swing the reversals to the next zone, rinse and repeat.
Why Use Supply And Demand?
One of the safest ways to trade is to wait for price to enter an area of interest where price should react. When we play reversals off of these areas, you increase the likelihood that your trade will be profitable because there was previous price action that told you that the current level is one where price will react. So we look for reversals at or very near these levels to enter into scalp or swing trade positions and look to exit that position when price is at or near the next major supply and demand level.
How To Use
The strategy with this indicator is to wait for price action to reach the levels shown by this supply and demand indicator and then enter trades at these levels, looking for a reversal. The thicker lines and the lines that are from the highest timeframes will be the most important levels on the chart. There is a table on the chart that will help you identify what timeframe the levels are using, with the color of that line next to it for easy identification.
The default settings are designed for scalping the 1-5 minute charts, so there are more levels turned on than necessary if you are using higher timeframes than 5 minutes. If you are using higher timeframes, make sure to turn off some of the lower timeframe levels so that it doesn’t clog up your charts. On the daily timeframe and above, many of the levels are coded to not turn on so that you don’t have to turn them off manually, but be aware that you will need to adjust your charts to suit your preferences, especially if you are on anything above the 5 minute chart.
For scalping, wait for price to react from the supply and demand levels by showing wicks, struggling to break through or getting reversal candles at those levels. Ride those moves to the next major supply and demand area before taking profit. You may want to turn on sessions and some of the lower timeframe levels as well if there are big gaps on the chart that are not suitable for scalping.
For swing trading, you will want to turn some of the lower timeframe and session levels off. Leave it to only higher timeframe OHLC lines and volume spike levels. Then you can swing moves that reverse off of the supply and demand lines.
This indicator is fully customizable. You can turn on or off any of the levels as well as increase the number specific levels so your charts suit your preferences.
All of the levels used are color coded individually so you can easily tell which type of level it is and these colors can be changed within the settings to suit your preferences. These colors are also reflected in the line identification table that show you exactly which color each type of level is.
There are toggles for the line identification table and session identification table as well if you don’t want them on your chart.
Types Of Levels Used
This indicator uses 4 different types of levels that I have found to be extremely influential on the price action. They are: volume spikes, higher timeframe price action, country based trading sessions and the VWAP. All of these levels have proven to be very important levels in my testing and are very helpful in spotting reversal areas.
This indicator is looking for the largest volume spikes and plotting the levels where that volume came in. It checks for the highest volume spikes across multiple different lengths of candles so that you get recent levels as well as the most important levels in the past. There are volume spike calculations for your current chart timeframe, 1 hour charts, 4 hour charts, daily charts, weekly charts, and monthly charts. Each of these looks for volume spikes across various lengths of candles for each timeframe and is color coded so you can identify which levels are which easily. The weekly and monthly volume spike levels are fatter than the normal volume spike levels with a line width of 2 to signify their importance.
OHLC Higher Timeframe Candles
This script plots levels of higher timeframe candles since price usually reacts very strongly to these levels. The levels it will produce are the high, low, open and close of the most recent closed candle of each higher timeframe. You can adjust these to show as many or as few previous HTF candles as you would like. The higher timeframe candles available to use are as follows: 1 hour, 4 hour, daily, 3 day, weekly, monthly, quarterly and yearly. The monthly, quarterly and yearly levels are fatter than the normal levels with a line width of 2 to signify their importance.
Trading sessions are very important levels because the market makers of different parts of the world are typically positioning themselves at these specific times. The number of each trading session line can be adjusted to show more or less levels depending on your preference. When you adjust the number, it will affect all lines that are enabled for that specific session. The levels available for each Tokyo, London & New York session are as follows: session premarket open, regular session open, session close, and session high & low. The session close boxes are fatter than the others with a line width of 2 to signify its importance.
VWAP & Previous Close
We all know that the VWAP aka Volume Weighted Average Price is a very important level on any chart, so we included this level as a default. However, we decided to take this a step further and include the previous daily session’s VWAP closing price and plot those levels. These are extremely important levels that you should pay very close attention to, along with the other levels mentioned above. The market makers are hedging their positions based on these levels and you will typically see very strong reactions to these levels, especially in the first hour when the markets open up. The VWAP and previous session VWAP close levels can be turned on or off and the default for the number of previous VWAP session close prices is set to 5. These levels are fatter lines because they are extremely important, so make sure to pay attention to them!
Line & Session Identification Tables
There are two tables to help you identify what is on the chart. The first is a large table in the top right that shows you the color and type of each line that is turned on so you can easily identify which lines are which. The second table is a small one at the bottom center of the chart that tells you which trading session we are currently in and what color that session is on the chart. These tables can be turned on or off and you can also change where they are on the chart by adjusting them at the bottom of the settings page.
This Supply And Demand indicator can be used on any market with price data such as stocks, crypto, forex and futures.
This Supply And Demand indicator can be used on any timeframe, from the second charts all the way up to the yearly charts.
