* - Covered here!

The LobbenG2G006 indicator was created to show the current momentum of the market as well as the strength of that momentum. It plots a single, dashed yellow line from the first group of the current unconnected line to the end of the most recent group. It moves much faster than some of the indicators, as it doesn’t wait for a change in direction to change the plot. Every time a new group is plotted on the screen, the indicator updates.

More Good stuff...

This indicator works with unconnected lines and groups. For more background on that, please look at our documentation or videos on Lobben Group to Group Core or go to our Learning Center

This indicator is great for showing gaining or fading momentum. The start anchor is always tied to the line that is currently winning the battle (buyers or sellers), as indicated by the most recent unconnected line.  The indicator changes directions whenever the most recent unconnected line changes colors. When this happens, the starting point changes from the old one to the first group of the new unconnected line. This is done because we always want to be tracking against the side (buyer vs seller) that currently has the upper hand in the market.

 You can watch the slope of the line change over time. If it gets steeper, things are heating up on that side. Conversely, if the dashed yellow line’s slope reduces, you can see the momentum starting to shift to the other direction.

This indicator is GREAT for looking at market momentum., and is a great one to add to your trading toolbox!
