The indicator is based on a popular price action strategy by Luc Thomas (Quickfingers Luc on YouTube 🡵).  His career in traditional markets led him to formulate a strategy that revolves around price action movements that reveal “bases”.  For instance, bases are price levels of support that have a significant, rapid price surge called “bounces”.  Once a base is revealed, Luc will reference the price level and create entry positions below the base.  Luc will monitor price action in anticipating of a base breakdown where price action rapidly drops below the base level.  The entries use a layering technique of dollar-cost averaging to place multiple limit orders at various price levels below the base.


You can find the documentation here.  Also, we have a YouTube video that provides an overview of the indicator as well.
