Indicator Levels & Colors

  • Indicator colors are typically blue for bullish, up, and stock support, red for bearish, down and resistance, and grey for neutral, flat.
  • Levels of 7-8 (strong, very strong) occur approximately a quarter (25%) of the time.
  • Levels of 9-10 occur only 1-2 times every 6 months (5% of the time) and represent extreme levels that can seldom be held for any amount of time.
