ICT Setup 01 [TradingFinder] FVG + Liquidity Sweeps/Hunt Alerts


The ICT (Inner Circle Trader) style of trading involves analyzing the behavior of market participants and market makers to identify areas where fake buy and sell activities occur. This trading style helps retail traders align with market maker behavior and avoid falling into market traps.

A key aspect of the ICT strategy is focusing on liquidity hunts. This involves searching for trading opportunities in areas of the market with low liquidity or where other traders have little activity. The ICT method leverages market inefficiencies and weaknesses, allowing traders to profit from small price movements that might go unnoticed by others.

In "ICT Setup 01," our focus is on these liquidity areas and stop hunts that form in Fair Value Gaps (FVGs). Trading within FVGs, combined with confirmations from "Hunts" and "Sweeps," can enhance trader performance.

🔵How to Use

The presence of Fair Value Gaps (FVGs) in the market indicates rapid, powerful movements likely caused by the influx of smart money. When the price returns to these levels, a market reaction is expected.

Combining this with the complex and deceptive behavior of smart money—such as "Liquidity Sweeps" and "Stop Hunts"—forms an ICT-based price action setup that we expect to perform well.

Components of "ICT Setup 01":
● Fair Value Gap (FVG)
● Premium and Discount
● Hunts / Sweeps

Whenever the price returns to an FVG area and reacts in such a way that only the wicks of the candles remain in the area and the candle bodies are outside the FVG, the first condition for creating the setup is met.

If subsequent candles hunt the wick that has penetrated the deepest into the FVG, a buy or sell signal is issued. In the format where hunting is based on Sweeps, penetrations that extend even outside the area are considered signals, provided they do not form a body within the area.

Additionally, a refining system exists for cases where a candle body forms in the area, optimizing the proximal levels of the FVG.

FVG Detector Multiplier Factor:

This feature allows you to determine the size of the moves forming the FVGs based on the ATR (Average True Range). The default value is 1 to identify the majority of setups. You can increase this value according to the symbol and market you are trading in to achieve better results.

FVG Validity Period:

This shows the validity period of an FVG based on the number of candles. By default, an FVG area is valid for up to 15 candles. However, you can increase or decrease this period.

Level in Low-Risk Zone:

This feature helps reduce your risk. The method works by identifying the entire length of the three candles forming the FVG and dividing it into two equal areas. The upper area is "Premium," and the lower area is "Discount." To reduce risk, it is better for "Demand FVG" to be in the "Discount" and "Supply FVG" in the "Premium." This feature is off by default.

Issuing Signals Method:

This feature allows you to specify whether the hunt should occur only within the FVG area or if the wicks can extend outside the area.

If set to "Hunts," only signals where the wicks are within the area are issued, and the area loses its validity if the wicks extend outside.

In "Sweeps" mode, wicks can extend outside the area as long as they do not form a body within the area.

Number of Signals Allowed from a Zone:

This feature allows you to specify how many valid signals can be issued from one area.

Signal after Hunts/Sweeps:

In markets or symbols with a tendency for frequent stop hunts, this feature allows you to specify how many hunts should occur before you receive a signal to avoid receiving potentially failed signals.

How Many Hunts/Sweeps:

Enter the number of hunts you want to set for the "Signal after Hunts/Sweeps" feature here.

Show or Hide:

The number of setups formed may be very large, and displaying all of them on the chart can be distracting and messy. By default, only the last setup is displayed, but if you want to see all setups, you can turn on the relevant options.

Alert Sender:

You cannot constantly monitor multiple charts to identify trading opportunities. Using the alert sending feature can save time and improve performance.

Alerts Name: Customize the alert name to your preference.

Message Frequency: Determines the frequency of alert messages. Options include 'All' (triggers every time the function is called), 'Once Per Bar' (triggers only on the first call within the bar), and 'Once Per Bar Close' (triggers only on the final script execution of the real-time bar upon closure). The default is 'Once per Bar.'

Show Alert Time by Time Zone: Configure the alert messages to reflect any chosen time zone. For instance, input 'UTC+1' for London time. The default is 'UTC.'

By configuring these settings, traders can effectively utilize ICT setups to improve their trading strategies and outcomes.
