Epic tail is an indicator that identifies significant "wicks" or "tails" where control has likely started a reversal pattern from support or against resistance, especially based on volume or number of tails.

These tails within a candlestick represent when the buyers have come up to close higher (from a lower wick) or when the sellers have sold off (from a higher wick). This pattern works on any timeframe.
