My trading beliefs center around support and resistance and being able to identify the trend. What I like to do is look at the major support and resistance levels on a chart and mark them. What i have found is that with this method the real edge comes by sitting on the sidelines when the market is not near these zones. For example. If the YM has major support at 13100 and major resistance at 13200 the closer you get to the middle of the closer the trade is to being a coinflip. What i am looking to do is to create an indicator which color codes the background of a chart by relative edge relative to these key zones. The closer you are to the zones are your green zones because that is where your edge is the largest. Next which is slightly inside this would be your yellow zone which has a lower edge, and finally the inside is your red zone which has the most random results and the least edge. More of a way of staying discplined than a method itself I am curious if it is really even possible to program to plot these zones based on a given support or resistance level. If you are looking for a reversal then fading the green zone would be the best play. If you are looking for a breakout then using breakout rules accordingly. Again the main idea behind this is more a way of discplining your mind to avoid taking trade without an edge. I would like to expand my research on this indicator, anyone that is interested feel free to PM me, and of course any input is always appreciated.
