Average True Range Bands

Average True Range Bands

The 30-day Average True Range is useful in Futures and Forex trading for placing stop orders for entry.

In the example above, a trader may want to initiate a Short position on a break below the support trendline.

A good place to enter this trade would be a price break below the support trendline minus 50 to 100% of the current ATR value.

ATR Bands provides a useful visual overlay of the current ATR value above and below the current price to speed up order entry decisions.
