So you’re using the ATR in the Daily chart of the whole year instead of the typical 14 period that the indicator tends to have as a default?
may I ask what Daily ATR(264) is ? thanks
@SamHuynh, ATR stands for Average True Range, it is the average price change indicator, 264 is the count of the days of a year excluding weekends, so ATR(264) is the average of daily price change in the recent year, it reveal the range we can expect for a security.
