What Is the Average True Range (ATR)?

The ATR is a technical analysis tool that measures market volatility by decomposing the entire range asset price for that period. Investopedia describes the ATR as follows:

"The average true range (ATR) is a technical analysis indicator, introduced by market technician J. Welles Wilder Jr. in his book New Concepts in Technical Trading Systems, that measures market volatility by decomposing the entire range of an asset price for that period.

The true range indicator is taken as the greatest of the following: current high less the current low; the absolute value of the current high less the previous close; and the absolute value of the current low less the previous close. The ATR is then a moving average, generally using 14 days, of the true ranges."

For more information on the ATR and its calculations and use cases, see here:

The indicator may time out if the number of bars being calculated is too long. If this happens, you will need to reduce the datetime range, or increase the chart timeframe in order to reduce the number of bars being calculated and the indicator will attempt to recalculate.
