//Modified Donchonian Channel with separate adjustments for upper and lower levels
//Purpose is if you expect big move up, Use lower input example 3 or 4, and longer lower input, 40 - 100 and use lower input line as a stop out
//Opposite if you expect big move down
//Mid Line Rule in Long Example.  If lower line is below entry take partial profits at Mid Line and move stop to Break even.
//If Lower line moves above entry price before price retraces to midline use Lower line as Stop...Opposite if Shorting

length2 = input(60, minval=1, title="Lower Channel")

upper = highest(length1)
lower = lowest(length2)

basis = avg(upper, lower)

l = plot(lower, style=line, linewidth=4, color=red)
u = plot(upper, style=line, linewidth=4, color=lime)

Interesting post on Donchian channels. I tried clicking to top right corner of chart a dozen times but nothing happens. Can you email this indicator to me or is it a paid indicator?
Btw, I tried this on Chrome and Firefox browser.

Hi Chris
Pardon, this is not a comment, but maybe you can help me.
I am from South Africa, and wonder if you can tell me where to find the Donchian Channels with the midline (tree lines - top, bottom and the middle line). So far I could find only the two line Donchian channel. I will appreciate it if you can fill me in on where to get it.
Kind regards

f your looking for a regular Donch Channel indicator with midline...then just make sure the values are set to the same for the look back period for both the Donch High and Low lines

Hi Chris
Thanks for your quick reply. I appreciate it.
I use the MT4 charts and already add the Donchian Channels in the Navigator (indicators) section. But this is the 2 line (top and Bottom) Donchian Channels. I would prefer the three line Donchian Channel. Do you know where I can get one to add to the MT4. I don't know how to add a snip of the donchian to this reply. One see them on Youtube . Refer to the insert for a video.

Hi Chris, could it be possible to code for 2 Donchian channels with variable lengths in one script, something like lets say 20 and 50 length Donchian channel together. So, instead of clicking on 2 indicators, 1st for 20 DC and 2nd for 50 DC, it can take of 2 variable lengths in one indicator. Something like the following link where 4 EMAs have been together...
