Kagi Chart

A Kagi Chart is a chart that ignores time and displays lines where the thickness and direction of the line signify how the price is moving. If a Kagi line exceeds the prior high point of the Kagi chart, the line becomes thick. If a Kagi line falls below the prior low point, the line becomes thin.

This study can be applied to a chart of any time period. Although bars of a very short duration, like under 10 seconds, would create the most accurate Kagi chart. You may wish to use a longer time period for different results. The study can be applied to Historical Daily Charts as well.
