TTM Squeeze
Version 3
The TTM Squeeze indicator attempts to identify periods of consolidation in a market. In general the market is either in a period of quiet consolidation or vertical price discovery. By identifying these calm periods, we have a better opportunity of getting into trades with the potential for larger moves. Once a market enters into a “squeeze”, we watch the overall market momentum to help forecast the market direction and await a release of market energy. The TTM Squeeze indicator was built from 3 components. The first two are Bollinger Bands and Keltner Channels. These are what trigger the red and green dots. When the Bollinger Bands (below in cyan) go inside of the Keltner Channel (below in red), the market is said to be in a squeeze. The dots across the zero line of the TTM Squeeze indicator will turn RED, signifying this period market compression. Once the Bollinger Bands expand and again move outside the Keltner Channel, the dots will turn GREEN, signifying that the squeeze has “fir...

The TTM Squeeze indicator was built from 3 components. The first two are Bollinger Bands and Keltner
Channels. These are what trigger the red and green dots. When the Bollinger Bands (below in cyan) go
inside of the Keltner Channel (below in red), the market is said to be in a squeeze. The dots across the
zero line of the TTM Squeeze indicator will turn RED, signifying this period market compression. Once the
Bollinger Bands expand and again move outside the Keltner Channel, the dots will turn GREEN, signifying that the squeeze has “fired”.

The final component of the TTM Squeeze indicator is a momentum indicator. Once the Bollinger Bands
move outside of the Keltner Channel, a squeeze has “fired”. In order to determine the direction of the
move, we then look to the momentum. If it is above zero, the squeeze has fired long. Inversely, a short
squeeze would be signified by negative momentum.

Great Histogram
July 11, 2017 Version: 3
By:Jack Dodge
The Histogram in this indicator gives you the courage to stick around a bit longer when other indicators like the MACD, the DMI, and Momentum are turning down and screaming SELL! I just wait for my TTM Squeeze Histogram to hit peak before I sell, adding profits more often than not. Try it with a Gold ETF such as JNUG on a 4-minute chart sometime. You'll like the results...
Poor FOREX results
April 10, 2017 Version: 3
By:Bob
Using the normal settings recommended by Mr. Carter, the squeeze signals (green dots) triggered way too late to make this a profiable trading FOREX strategy. Perhaps the BB Keltner Channel strategy works with other trading instruments, but not very well with FOREX.

EURUSD: 5 losses; 3 wins; and once with 3 short bars remaining.
AUDCAD: 4 losses; 4 wins; twice with 1 bar remaining and once with 1 bar left.
AUDCAD: 2 losses; 3 wins; twice with 1 bar left, twice with 2 bars left, and once with 3 bars left.

This indicator is a good tool to use together with the floor traders pivots, it helps with patience and with proper entries and keeps you out of impulse trades. Of course, your need to interpret the market internals to make it more accurate.
