When is an order block valid?

July 29, 2023

In order to make an order block valid we need a break of structure in the market (read more about this later in the e-book). If there is not break of structure, there is no valid order block. This is the main reason we connected structure to the order blocks, so our system automatically does this for you. Sp the SMC Indicator will draw the zones for you and take in consider market structure. Cool. So the amount of order blocks and the quality of the orderblocks really depends on your settings. In the SMC Indicator we have 2 different types of order blocks

This simply means that the order blocks are connected to the swing and internal structure. After every BOS in the market, our system will look for high volume area’s where an order block is located. This means if when you change the swing and internal structure settings, the order blocks will change with it. It’s important to play around with this and test out which zones you prefer.

If you want to read a more detailed blog about order blocks and how to increase it's probability, I suggest you to read this blog.
