Smooth Chart Spread

The Smooth Chart Spread combines an Alpha Hunters Smooth Minute chart with the Alpha Hunters' Last Price Line indicator.

Smooth Charts are a moving average of the Open, High, Low and Last Price. 

What do we look for? 

We found that if the last price line is above the Smooth Chart's current bar, the market is considered bullish. Meaning, on average, the previous price is above all the rest, market up!

The reverse for bearish, the last price is below the current bar.

How to create a chart that shows this setup.

Load a Smooth Minute Chart from Data Series. The Smooth Minute chart will be in the drop-down menu. 


  • Size = Minutes - Set the "Size"  to be the minute chart you wish to display. 
    • We use 1,5,10,15 normally.
  • The "Average" is what average to use for this display. We default this to a "3" standard.
    • You can change this and see a better average; we suggest staying closer to the market with a 3,4,5 type average. 
  • Set the "Mode" to 1, which will display an average of the LAST price. 
    • The key to this market view is to see if, on average, the LAST PRICE LINE is above or below the entire previous bar's averages.

Set the chart style to Line on Close.

Add the Last Price Indicator from Alpha Hunters indicator Folder.

The chart should look like this chart below when you are done

Market Pulse plots red if negative and green if positive. 

The yellow color means it is 1 point on either side of the zero last price line.
