The Price Heatmap Indicator For MT5 is a technically sound indicator which provides an interesting and insightful perspective into price action as it trades about the markets - the heat map uses a great colorization visual which maps the price action volatility, and buying and selling pressure - this indicator works very well in sideways channels where the oversold and overbought regions become easily noticeable in the end of their respective down and up cycles. Traders will notice that there is a purple dotted line or group of lines going horizontally across the screen - well these lines are peak lines which may be treated as support and resistance levels of which trades may use as suitable guidelines for setting take profit targets. As for the heat-map itself, well the colors are simple to understand - the heat-map varies from one extreme color to another extreme color depending on the price action - the one extreme is colored in a strong red color and the other extreme color is green. The red color marks the contentious parts of the market where the buying pressure overcomes selling pressure or vice versa - it is a zone of high volatility - when price comes into this red zone traders should be on the lookout for sudden price movements.
