To simplify understanding of the impacts that the economic calendar has on the graphs, we calculate how long these impacts remain affecting the graph, and then we name these impacts Red Zone (common impacts) and Wine Zone for large impacts.
understand the colors
We identified that the market follows a different pace at various times of the day and over time we were able to divide them into colors, we understand that the market moves differently in each color, thinking about this we seek to test various indicators and strategies in each time range separately, and we came to the conclusion that each zone has different amounts of indicators and strategies that work in each of the zones, so we decided to give these zones the classic overall classification colors, and the 1st was the Blue Zone, with most indicators and strategies fitting perfectly to it, the 2nd Green Zone, having a little less, but with a considerable amount, 3rd Light Green Zone with very few indicators and strategies adapting to it, 4th Lime Green Zone, this is a very specific zone that occurs from 17:00 to 19:59 (Brasilia time GMT-3:00) when spreads are large and payout low, Red Zone considered the worst time to carry out the operations. But it is noteworthy that there are people who have adapted to this zone and only use it to operate and the wine zone, when there are uncontrolled variations in prices.
