The Squeeze is an extremely powerful indicator for timing trades as well as understanding price movement. When you set up your watchlist full of your favorite stocks, ETFs, Indexes, currencies. etc. you can now add a Custom column to the mix which will give you a quick view of the Squeeze. When watching this column you can easily see if an underlying has a Squeeze setting up or recently fired which is pivotal to timing your trades around this set up.
You can set up your Custom Squeeze Column by copying the below code into a Custom Script in TOS. Once you have the code pasted into a Custom Script you will be able to apply the column to any of your watchlists.
