Candle Coloring

Confirmation Mode - Contrarian Mode - Control Mode

The candle coloring feature allows the user to change the body color of the candles/bars when using candlesticks or bar charts. Three coloring modes are available, with two of them being based on the previously described signal methodologies.

Candle coloring also works on charts using heikin-ashi, renko, kagi, line break, point and figure, and range candles.

Each mode can be enabled from the settings in the candle color mode dropdown menu

In order to use candle coloring as properly as possible make sure to disable the borders setting in your chart settings.

Confirmation Simple

The confirmation simple color mode is based on the methodology used by confirmation signals and is the one enabled by default. This mode uses three colors, each one can be interpreted as follows:

  • Green candles: Strong buy active.

  • Red candles: Strong sell active.

  • Purple candles: Normal buy or sell signal active.

Confirmation Gradient

The confirmation gradient color mode is also based on the algorithm that generates confirmation signals, but will slightly differ from the previously described confirmation simple color mode.

Lighter green colors indicate strong bullish variations, while lighter red colors indicate strong bearish variations. Color closer to purple indicates that the current variation might be a retracement or that the market is ranging.

Contrarian Mode

The contrarian color mode is based on the contrarian signals, however, it does not give information about the direction price might take, but indicate the potential of a reversal occurring, with a color closer to red meaning that there is a higher chance of a reversal.

Contrarian color mode

This mode can be useful to exit a position, all you need is to wait for a red candle to turn blue.

Control Mode

The control mode is based on the Lux control algorithm which aims to measure whether the market is bullish or bearish (more information about the Lux control in the dashboard page). A bullish market will have blue candles while a bearish will have red ones. When the color is violet it means bulls and bears have equal control over the market.
