FractalChaosBands


Summary

The Fractal Chaos Bands indicator attempts to determine whether or not the market is trending.

Remarks

When the market is trending, the bands will have a slope, and if the market is not trending or choppy, the bands will flatten out. The flatter the bands, the stronger the signal that the market is choppy. The more steep the band slopes, the stronger the signal that the market trending or stable.
