Stacked Imbalances

Stacked imbalances. The indicator compares the volume of bids at one price level with the volume of asks on the price located one level higher. The imbalance value is determined as a percentage of the volumes being compared.

For example, let's analyze the value of 30 ask and the overweight value of 350%, 350% of 30 = 105, in order for the cluster to be allocated it is necessary for the bid to be more than 105.
