The indicator is a broken line connecting local maximums and minimums on the price chart, so it can be conveniently used to analyze price charts.
Traders who use Elliott waves in their trading frequently use the ZigZag indicator to identify waves. The indicator will also be useful for determining the current trend and plotting a trend line.
Depth is a parameter that sets the minimum interval at which the indicator will build a new extremum if the condition for the Deviation parameter is met. Measured in the number of candles, the default value is 12.
Deviation sets the minimum amount of price change required for the indicator to form a maximum/minimum on the symbol chart. Measured as a percentage, the default value is 5.
Step is the minimum number of candles that should be between local extrema. A new minimum/maximum will not be built on this section if it differs from the previous one by the value of the Deviation indicator. The default value is 3.
