What is the Zig Zag Indicator?

The Zig Zag indicator plots points on the chart whenever prices reverse by a percentage greater than a pre-chosen variable. Straight lines are then drawn, connecting these points. The indicator is used to help identify price trends. The ZigZag also gives you information about these moves’ Volume, Delta, Candlecount and Time.
