Thank you for sharing this afl, I was curious whats the difference between a plus value green candle and negative value green candle, what does it tell us? Same goes for the red candle, what does positive value red candle and negative value red candle tells us?

Many thanks.

2. data

Green is bullish whereas red is bearish. Bellow zero means the candle strength is low whereas above zero means it is a strong candle signal. So for example, a red below zero mean it’s a weak bearish candle.
