TTM Squeeze indicator

TTM Squeeze indicator


TTM Squeeze indicator was invented by famous trader John Carter. The purpose of the indicator is to assess volatility and use this information for correct timing of trading operations.

We often believe that getting the right direction in a trade is very important. But in fact there is something even more important: the timing of operations.
You can be right with the future direction of an instrument but lose the trade because of bad timing.

Using the TTM Squeeze indicator can greatly increase odds in your favor in your trading activity.
I have more than 10 years in the trading activity and only became aware of the importance of timing recently.

I designed some strategies using the TTM Squeeze indicator and was very impressed by the results.
Now I would consider that the TTM Squeeze indicator might be the most important indicator to have in ones trading arsenal.


itcTtmSqueeze indicator can be used for any financial instrument and any time frame.

The indicator contains a center line that represents the squeeze or volatility level. The indicator also shows an histogram representing the momentum in the price.

If a squeeze displays white points then it means that we have normal volatility.
When squeeze turns red then means that volatility is low and energy is building.
When squeeze turns green then it means that price is releasing energy and will start to move.
The longer the squeeze, the more reliable the signal, and more important will be the move following the squeeze.

You can decide to display or no the histogram that represents the momentum of price.

You can also customize colors of histogram bars and points in the squeeze.
