What the number after the squeeze means in the Squeeze watchlist column.
For a ticker symbol that is currently in a squeeze, the squeeze will be printed as a red label or text. The number following the colon will refer to the number of bars the symbol has been in a squeeze.
For a ticker symbol that has fired long (ie. no longer in a squeeze), the label or text will be printed in green. The number following the colon will refer to the number of bars the symbol has no longer been in a squeeze.
For a ticker symbol that has fired short (ie. no longer in a squeeze), the label or text will be printed in either orange or green. The number following the colon will refer to the number of bars the symbol has no longer been in a squeeze.
Your squeeze watchlist may look like the following, which is the standard watchlist the traders use.. Squeezes are printed in red, fired squeezes (short or long) are printed in green.
This symbol has been in a squeeze for 6 bars.
If a symbol is in a squeeze, there will be a red dot on the histogram.
The color in the watchlist may be different if the squeeze has fired more than one bar ago.
In the screenshot below, the chart on the left has the squeeze firing for the first bar and is orange in the watchlist.
The screenshot on the right, the squeeze fired 2 bars ago and is green in the watchlist.
Both show that the symbol is no longer in a squeeze.
If the symbol has not been in a squeeze for awhile (more than 5 bars), then there will be nothing displaying in the squeeze watchlist next to that symbol.
