Danger/Safety Zones: Danger, risks, fear, safety, greed, confidence and bravery are perceived or emotional components that investors have to deal with.
It was with this in mind that we worked on a model that would show the market's danger and safety levels simultaneously on a graph.
The Danger/Safety Zone chart model ...
The way this chart works, is that the green bars reflect the safety level, and the red bars reflect the danger level.
The color of the bars above the horizontal line is the predominant condition. The other bar should be below the bottom horizontal line reflecting the diminishing opposite condition. (When a bar level is in between both horizontal lines, it indicates a higher-risk, mixed condition.)
So, what is the model saying today?
It says that we just came out of a Danger Zone condition and now have a Safety Zone condition. That is because the green bars are above the top horizontal line and moving higher, and because the red bars are now below the bottom red horizontal line and moving lower.
*** Comments: So, Safety levels will continue to improve as long as the green bars stay positive and move higher, while the red bars stay negative and move lower.
I would like to see the red bars a lot lower than they are now, but the MACD-C is just starting to turn positive, so a healthy condition would be for the red bars to start moving down faster on their descending process.
