This indicator will show you the speed at the price of a symbol is fluctuating over time and as you cannot predict the momentum by looking at the charts which is the change of price you can use a momentum indicator to notify you when there is a price change for your traded symbol. The cTrader Squeeze Momentum Indicator works by mathematically calculating the rate of change of a currency pair price to determine the strength of the current market trend.
How it Works
The Squeeze Momentum indicator was created by John Carter and it measures the relationship between Bollinger Bands, Keltner's Channels & the Donchian Channel, so when the volatility increases, the distance between the bands, conversely, when the volatility declines, the distance also decreases. To produce signals the Squeeze indicator is shown with a Momentum Oscillator where the histogram bars is smoothed up with linear regression and other techniques.
When the indicator shows Green dots and Up Histogram bars (blue) the squeeze is on for a bullish trend, when the indicator shows Green dots and the Down Histogram bars (red) it is the squeeze for a bearish trend.
You can use this Indicator on any timeframe, unfortunately, we hope that the user settings are self-explanatory, but if you need help then post your question on our support group.
