Valtos Transition

This indicator forms part of the Valtos Indicator Suite of indicators using order flow analytics algorithms developed by Mike Valtos of orderflows.com. It is designed for short term traders and looks for shifts in supply and demand – the areas where the market changes from a demand-driven market to a supply-driven market or vice versa. When a market is putting in a bottom or a top it exhibits certain characteristics which can be seen in the order flow. When a bottom is being made the selling decreases and you see buying start to pick up and conversely when a high or swing high is being made you see buying decrease and selling start to pick up before the market falls over.

The strength ratio of Bar C to Bar B.

Ratio Balance 2
