Heat maps are great because they can show you which pares are trending in a direction more strongly then others.
Few ways you can use the heat map.
1) Is there a pair that DARK Green or Red on the larger time frame? that means its trended strongly lately for a longer period of time. If the lower time frame is changing colors in the other direction, you can use that to look for pullbacks or even large reversals.
2) larger timeframe starting to lightly change colors in a direction making a possible new trend? Is the lower timeframe starting to match the new larger trend? Signal to pull that chart up and look for trend continuation trades.
Heat map is not a trading system nor an indicator. It doesn’t tell you when to buy or sell. It simply provides accurate information about what market participants are doing. Bookmap’s heat maps may allow you to eliminate this problem. This can lead to a more profitable trading business.

Heatmap works by using colors to highlight different factors. They are generally used with candlestick charts, which show the daily or weekly price movements. It is a simple and effective visual aid for traders to see how price moves and where an asset's high and low points are.
Heatmap works by collecting the data from a web page. It uses a dark-to-light color scale to display which content of the web page is clicked more or which area gets more attention. For example, the area where viewer clicks the most gets a dark color and light color where the viewer gives no attention.
