Smooth Chart Spread


 

The Smooth Chart Spread is a combination of a Alpha Hunters Smooth Minute chart combined with the Alpha Hunters' Last Price Line indicator.

Smooth Charts are a moving average of the Open, High, Low and Last Price. 


What we look for? 

We found that if the last price line is above the Smooth Chart's current bar,  the market is considered bullish. Meaning, on average, the last price is above all the rest, market up!

The reverse for bearish, the last price is below the current bar.

  • The "Average" is what average to use for this display. We default us a "3" average.
    • Keep in mind you can change this and see if there are better average, we suggest to stay closer to the market with a 3,4,5 type average.  
  • Set the "Mode" to 1 which will display an average of the LAST price. 
    • The key to this view of the market is to see if on average, the LAST PRICE LINE is above or below the entire previous bar's averages.
