EDGE Zones™

EDGE Zones™ identify Aggression over single or multiple price levels. You can fine-tune how aggressive traders are identified by the indicator. Examples of what you can achieve through changing the indicator settings are highlighting price levels where: 

  • there was at least 6x more buying than selling (or vice-versa) across 3 adjacent prices
  • a ‘massive imbalance’ of more than 10,000 contracts were bought or sold
  • there was 25x more buying than selling (or vice-versa) at a given price level
  • the net difference between buying and selling was at least 450 contracts

Please refer to the Pullback Analysis section (Sierra Chart only) to learn how EDGE Zones™ can be used for powerful trigger signals that are independent of your chart type and period.
