Using Dots Indicator by IntroMoto

The Dots Indicator by Intromoto shows input levels of RSI, i.e. commonly considered "overbought" or "oversold" levels, across multiple simultaneous periods. The traders can utilize the signals generated by this indicator to determine potential position size and when to 'fade' moves, or to position themselves in agreement with the signals upon common pullbacks.

The Dots indicator has three identical, look-back specific indicators; small dot, medium dot, and large dot, with specific colors. Additionally, there is another low and high dot placement with a different metric.

It's commonly understood that divergences get "reset" or invalidated upon RSI returning to the mid-line 50 level, these dots can give you a reasonable idea on a more intuitive and candle-specific basis of whether a divergence has formed over windows of time.

Understanding Different Dots

Irrespective of the time frame selected, the largest entries should be on candles with dots stacked up, large, and most extreme.

Reddish pink for shorts, greenish for longs. Blue and red dots are essentially calling longer time frames and apply a filter, so should be respectful of higher time frames.

Small dots are warnings, larger dots should be respected more so. Traders need to be aware of strong trends when the dots will appear as a counter to the successful trends.

Different Kinds of Dots Conveying Different Kinds of Signals

The yellow, pink, and shades of green dots are RSI based, focusing on overbought and oversold conditions. The blue and red dots are also RSI based but have a filter applied to reduce signal noise and lower time frame triggers.

Important Notes

  • Though it's commonly understood that divergences get "reset" or invalidated upon RSI returning to the mid-line 50 level, these dots can give you a reasonable idea on a more intuitive and candle-specific basis of whether a divergence has formed over windows of time.

  • If the price has made a higher high but has either a smaller dot than the previous high, or no dot at all, this indicates a bearish divergence and produces an increased probability of retracing to a support level, or in the extreme scenarios, a trend reversal.

  • If the price makes a lower low but has either a smaller dot or no dot at all, you'll likely have a bullish divergence on your chart, and could play for a bounce or bullish trend reversal.
