What is the Bid/Ask trend Indicator?

Bid/Ask trend indicator is available from Amibroker 5.9 onward.

It is a graphical indicator showing the direction of 10 most recent changes in real-time bid/ask prices. The right-most box is most recent and as new bid/ask quotes arrive they are shifted to the left side. Color coding is as follows:

  • Dark green: bid > previous bid OR ask > previous ask
  • Bright green: bid > previous bid AND ask > previous ask
  • Dark red: bid < previous bid OR ask < previous ask
  • Bright red: bid < previous bid AND ask < previous ask
  • Red / Green box: ask < previous ask AND bid > previous bid
  • Green / Red box: ask > previous ask AND bid < previous bid

If bid/ask prices don't change there is no new box.

NOTE: This column works only if there are real-time quotes streaming (i.e.  markets are open)
