Contraction Expansion, Narrow Range, Breakout


Prices move in a cycle of contraction and expansion. If we can identify a contraction then we may get a tradable move. This query helps you to do that.

At the lower end of SCRIPT List Window you will find a tab named SCAN. Just click on that.

NR7 is a term given to a day that has a range smallest of last 7 trading days including that day. Market goes through regular contraction and expansion cycle. Expanding range is followed by Contraction and vice-versa. So if we can identify the narrow range days, then it give us a step ahead to benefit from coming expansion.

NR7 represents contraction and warn us that a range expansion may come. However the direction is unknown but we can assume that the large expansion may come in the direction of the trend.
