Breaking down the Tunnel Indicator
This Indicator is formed with a combination of 8 bands of various parameters. The top 4 bands work as a potential area of support as price often bounces upwards from these levels creating opportunities to go long. These levels can also be used to define bullish breakouts of the market.
The last 4 bands at the bottom work as resistance levels and you’ll see prices often used to jump downwards from these areas while in a bearish trend. You can also put a sell stop just below the lowest band to activate your sell entry with a possible bearish breakout setup.
