An example of using this indicator on the 1-hour chart

Look at the above image. You should see that the indicator is depicted at the top left of the chart. In this way, using this indicator you can easily find out the price movement on each time frame candle - whether the most recent candlestick is bullish or bearish.

The mechanism is very simple, and it will display green if the candlestick closed positive, or red if the candle ended the session negative. This will allow you to trade more efficiently, without switching the chart every time when you want to check the candles on other time frames.

This indicator should be very useful for those who do MTF analysis.

Usage tips:

There are many usages for this indicator among which the most common use is for trend analysis. For example, if all the boxes have the same color, it means that there may be a strong trend on that currency pair. However, it is necessary to be careful because this indicator only displays the price movement of the latest candlestick of each time frame.

It can also be used as a filter when trading. For example, it may be better to be careful if the candlestick of the upper time frame is a hidden line when placing a buy order.
