Determining market trends has become a science even though a high number of people still believe it’s a gambling game. Mathematicians, technicians, brokers, as well as investors, have worked together in developing quite several indicators to help them better understand and forecast market movements. The Prime Number Bands indicator was developed by Modulus Financial Engineering Inc. This band shows the nearest prime numbers, both highs and lows, and plots the difference between them as bands, on a chart.
Interpretation of the Prime Number Bands Indicator:
Similar to the Darvas’ Box, the prime number bands indicator shows the space range where a market price moves into. This indicator uses prime numbers and identifies the closest high and low prime numbers. It also plots the difference between the value at this moment.
How to Technically set up the Prime Number Bands on your Chart?
In the Zerodha Kite platform, traders can find the indicator under the STUDIES section.

Strategic Key Information about Prime Number Bands
- This Prime Number Bands indicator is different from the prime number oscillator indicator.
- In this, the first one indicates a broader area where the values move.
- If a constant upward movement reflects on the chart, the signal of Prime number bands indicator indicates a bullish market is present and the market is safe, flourishing, contrarily.
- If this indicator moves constantly downwards, a bearish market is following and the market becomes unstable and volatile.
- One thing must be noted that once the band creates peaks, the price is about to reverse soon.
Now, look at the chart below. There the band looks like a horizontal line during the sideways movement. Once the price breaks the range, the market went up. So, if a stock price is going through a certain range, wait for the breakout and entry. The price will surely go further.
The indicator has always been somewhat of a mystery in the mathematics world. Chartists have tried to use their awkward disposal in the design of financial indicators. This indicator is taking advantage of their magical purpose to better predict market movements, trends and consequently, to successfully plan their next moves.
