IMB (Imbalance)

Imbalance is an area of unequal market moves where there are only buyers or only sellers exist in the market. It is inefficient or unhealthy price action. It shows disequilibrium between Buyers/Sellers. So an imbalance means unfair price action where the market will almost always come back to fill. Here, the wicks do not fill each other (If they do then it is healthy price action and not an imbalance). It is not mitigation. So, the price doesn’t have to reverse from that point).
