DIAMONDS is an algorithm that was created while designing different trading systems. It is a proprietary algorithm that tries to measure exhaustion in selling or buying and possible chance of short term reversal.
The ALGO calculates recent highs/lows, consecutive highs/lows, RSI, volatility and then the formula outputs; a number that either meet certain criteria or not. RED diamonds suggest possible short term top. GREEN or BLUE diamonds suggest possible short term bottoms.
The term “suggested” is used because like any other indicator or trading strategy, the future for the next few minutes or sometimes seconds cannot be predicted.
ILM produces arrows on the charts that signal potential change in direction and momentum since ILM is based on moving average and a volatility system.

See on the daily bar chart for the March e-mini S&P futures that prices are in a steep downtrend and on Wednesday hit a contract and multi-month low. The bears have the solid near-term technical advantage. However, Wednesday's high-range close does begin to hint that S&P bears may now be exhausted. Price action Thursday and Friday will be extra important. Upside price action, overall, the last two trading days of the week would be a clue that a near-term market bottom is in place for the U.S. stock indexes. Make 2016 a great year!!
