Keltner Channel

Created by Chester Keltner in the 1960s. This indicator is similar to Bollinger Bands, but uses volatility to set the bands, instead of standard deviation by Bollinger Bands. This means Bollinger Bands are more smooth but the Keltner Channel is more sensitive.

Interpretation

The most important events are the moves outside of the normal range indicated by the channel.

If the price breaches the upper line it indicates an upward trend.
If the price breaches down through the lower line it indicates an downward trend.

Calculation

Middle Line: 20-day exponential moving average
Upper Channel Line: 20-day EMA + (2 x ATR(10))
Lower Channel Line: 20-day EMA - (2 x ATR(10))

Risk Disclosure: Trading foreign exchange on margin carries a high level of risk, and may not be suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with foreign exchange trading, and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
