  • At least three columns of the indicator histogram have a color with the growth value and are directed upward, above level 0.
    When such conditions are received on the signal candle, a buy trade can be opened due to the presence of an uptrend. When the current trend changes, namely when opposite conditions are received, the current trade should be closed and a new one should be considered.

  • The indicator histogram has a color with a fall value and is directed below level 0.
