Trading Panel - SMC HTF

How to Read the Trading Panel

Trading panel

Why has the Trading Panel got a blank cell?

1) The timeframe you selected in the SMC HTF Settings is a lower timeframe than the timeframe you are viewing.

In the below image you can see the Higher Timeframe selected is the 1 Hour but the chart I am viewing is the 4 Hour. This will make the cells in the Trading Panel that read this timeframe blank.

Higher Timeframe is lower than the active timeframe

2) The Swing or Internal structure may be too far back for the indicator to read it. In the image below, you can see that we are currently viewing the 5 minute chart, and wanting to use the Daily as our Higher Timeframe. The Daily Swing Structure is too far back in the past on the 5 minute timeframe to be able to read it.

What is the maximum number of timeframes that can be viewed using the Trading Panel?

The trading panel lets you view up to two different timeframes, in addition to the one you're currently using. So in total, you can see information from three different timeframes at once.
