The indicator has a blue color and a 0.5% level (dashed line), which is shown in a separate window of the main chart. The current market condition of a financial asset is determined by the position of the blue line.

When the blue line rises above the 0.5 level, the market is trending (bullish/bearish). If the blue line is below the 0.5 level, then the market is considered to be moving in the opposite direction (range).
