The bullish signal is believed to be strong and consistent when the histograms of the Trend Quality oscillator gets above the zero and also the indicator line that is filled blue under such circumstances.

A bearish trend is said to take shape when the histograms of the Trend Quality oscillator pushes below the zero mark, even so if the candlestick dives below the blue indicator line, a bearish signal is said to be imminent.
