What is a Squeeze? A squeeze occurs when tighten up enough to slip inside of .
This is interpreted as price is compressing and building up energy before releasing it and making a big move.
Traditionally, John Carter's version uses 20 period SMAs as the basis lines on both the BB and the KC.
In this version, I've given the freedom to change this and try out different types of moving averages.
The original squeeze indicator had only one Squeeze setting, though this new one has three.
The gray dot Squeeze, call it a "low squeeze" or an "early squeeze" - this is the easiest Squeeze to form based on its settings.
The orange dot Squeeze is the original from the first Squeeze indicator.
And finally, the yellow dot squeeze, call it a "high squeeze" or "power squeeze" - is the most difficult to form and suggests price is under extreme levels of compression.
Now to explain the parameters:

The has always been much better at signaling bottoms than tops. Simple reason is when market falls retail traders panic and increase , and professionals come in and capitalize on the situation. At market tops there is no one panicking... just liquidity drying up.
