Starc Bands Explanation
Starc Bands has been designed with 3 different bands. The top band represents the overbought area of the market.
This is the place where traders look for possible sell opportunities with the intention of going short from the high of the market. The band at the bottom represents the oversold area of the market.
Price often intends to bounce upwards from this area and traders look for buy opportunities from such areas with an aim to capture better risk to reward ratio against the market entries.
The mid-band works as a trend decider. Price stays above this band signals the validity of the bullish trend and moves below the level to certify the trend as bearish.
