Overview of Consecutive Closes Pattern


Definition: The Consecutive Closes pattern is identified when the market consistently closes above or below its opening price in the same direction for several bars in a row. For instance, if the market is trending upwards and there are four consecutive closes above each bar's opening price, this would be indicated as +4 on Market Pulse.


  • Indicator of Potential Reversals: When a pattern of consecutive closes is detected, Market Pulse often displays a red background. This serves as a visual cue that a setback or reversal might be imminent, particularly after a series of consecutive closes.

  • Typical Occurrence: While it's possible to observe more, it's common to see 3 to 4 consecutive closes in the same direction. This falls within the typical 4 to 9 bar cycle count observed in markets.


Interpretation of Opposite Closes: If an opposite close occurs following a series of consecutive closes, it's generally considered a normal part of market behavior and aligns with expected cyclical patterns. This change in direction is often seen as a natural market correction within the broader trend.

The Ops Up/Ops Down feature in the Online Trading Solutions Market Pulse App offers traders the ability to customize settings for a more personalized market analysis experience. This feature focuses on identifying market positions relative to the opening prices. Here's a breakdown of the customization options available for the Ops Up/Ops Down settings:


1. Show Ops Up/Ops Down:

  • This option allows traders to toggle the display of the Ops Up/Ops Down feature on or off, depending on whether they want to include this analysis in their market overview.


2. Warning Threshold Setting:

  • Set a specific threshold value that triggers a warning color, usually yellow. The app will display this color when the spread is 1 point above or below the set threshold, alerting traders to significant price movements relative to the open.


3. Positive Value Color:

  • Choose a background color for situations where the Ops value is above the warning threshold. This color can help visually indicate bullish conditions or potential buying opportunities when the current price is above the opening price by a significant margin.


4. Negative Value Color:

  • Similarly, select a background color for when the Ops value is below the warning threshold. This color can signal bearish conditions or potential selling opportunities when the current price is below the opening price by a significant amount.


By customizing these settings, traders can align the Ops Up/Ops Down feature in Market Pulse with their individual trading strategies and preferences. The ability to set specific warning thresholds and choose visual cues for positive and negative values enhances the app’s usability, making it an effective tool for real-time market analysis.
