of 9 is one of the many brilliant concepts from W.D. himself where it revolves around the idea that price is moving in a certain geometrical pattern. Numbers on the Square of 9 spiral tables, especially those lie in every 45degree in the chart act as key vibration levels where prices have tendency to react to (more on the table below).
There are few square of 9 related scripts here in Tradingview and while there's nothing wrong with them, it doesn't address 1 particular issue that i have: The numbers can be too rigid even when scaled based on current price because the levels are fixed, which makes them not tradable on certain timeframes depending on where the price currently sitting.
Heres 5min and 1hour Bitcoin chart to illustrate what i mean: Grey line on the left is based on Adjusted levels, while red/blue on the right are the standard levels.
You can see that on 1hour chart, it provides a good levels (both Adjusted and the standard one happened to share the same multiplier in this case),
On 5 min chart tells a different story as the range between blue/red levels can be deemed as to big for a short term trade, while the grey line is adjusted to suit that particular timeframe (You can still adjust to make it bigger/smaller from the settings, more on this below)
█ Little bit on of 9 table
This is the square of nine table, the numbers highlighted in Red are known as Cardinal Cross and considered to be a major while those in Blue color are known as Ordinal Cross considered as minor (but still important) levels
Similarly, this script use these numbers (and certain multipliers) to print out the levels, with Cardinal numbers represented by solid lines and Ordinal numbers by dotted lines.
█ How it Works and Limitations
The Adjusted grid will go through several iterations of different multipliers to find the number range that is at least bigger than times ATR. Because it's using ATR to determine the range, occasionally you'll notice that the line become smaller as ATR contracting (and vice versa). To overcome this, you can change the size range multiplier from the settings to retrieve the previous range size.
Use the size guide at the bottom left to find the multiplier that suits your need:
1st Row -> Previous Range -- Change Range Size to number lower than this to get a smaller range
2nd Row -> Next Range -- Change Range Size to number higher than this to get a larger range
As you'll soon realise, the key here is to find the range that fits the historical structure and suits your own strategy. Enjoy :)
