Keltner Channel 2.0

Overview

Kelter Channel is a technical indicator designed to find overbought and oversold price areas, using a exponential moving average and ATR. And it implements a particularly useful twist: you can plot the bands of a higher timeframe in the current chart.

  • Find overbought and oversold situations
  • Read data from higher timeframes easily
  • The indicator displays data at bar opening
  • The indicator is non-repainting

Trading implications are simple.

  • Look for shorts when the price exceeds the upper bands.
  • Look for longs when the price falls below the lower bands
  • Dive into lower timeframes without losing values!
