Buy- and sellside liquidity guide

July 29, 2023

Buy- and sellside liquidity

Buyside liquidity refers to areas on a chart where short sellers, or those betting on price declines, place their stop orders. Conversely, sellside liquidity denotes areas where traders expecting price increases, or long-biased traders, set their stops.

These zones frequently function as support (price floor) or resistance (price ceiling) levels, offering potential trading prospects when prices approach these points.

How to enable the Buy- and sellside liquidity feature?

Step 1: head over to the SMC Settings

To enable the feature simply head over to the indicator settings.

Step 2: Enable the stop hunt featue.

When you are inside the SMC settings - locate the "show buyside liquidity" and make sure to check the box to see the levels.

What does  mitigated mean?

Mitigation means that price already took out the liquidity. When you have "Remove " enabled you won't see any levels that are already been induced. When you enable "show" it will show historical  levels.

What does Display Limit mean?

The value you input determines the number of levels displayed on your chart. For example, if you input '2', you will see two levels each for buyside and sellside liquidity.
