Oversold and Overbought
The Oversold and Overbought indicator paints the bars on the chart, by default the bars will either be displayed as blue or as red. The Oversold and Overbought indicator uses the Average True Range (with a multiplier of 2) in its calculation to determine the colour of the bars.
To add the tool to your chart, select the tool from the Berg tool group, and left-click on the chart or indicator on which you wish to add the tool. Optuma will then draw the tool using the default settings.
