Indicator: STARC Bands

STARC (Stoller Average Range Channels) bands make use of ATR to form the bands, giving it a more in-depth snapshot of market volatility compared to Bollinger Bands .

When a price curve penetrates a Bollinger Band , it may indicate the continuation of a price move; in contrast, the STARC bands tend to define upper and lower limits for normal price action.

Good one! Have used Keltner and Bollinger together same period modified height (would have to look, think it was BB 2 KC 1.5) to visualize squeeze release. Use that only as a dial up template (barchart) to check prefer minimum overlays. Your stuff gives me ideas that are fun to pursue. Thanks and keep smiling!

Third, and hope last comment -- I just check Keltner channel with

Length = 8
Multiplyer = 2
Exponential = x

and the result is very close to STARC.

Regarding the strategy buying the lower band and selling the upper is considered lousy by people working with Keltner. At least in the simplest form. That's what I heard from traders.

Anyways, fascinated with your research and appreciate it.

Ok, it seems to I see the difference.

Your indicator is basically ATR added and substracted to the price.

Keltner channel is ATR added and substracted to the moving average.

"Basis" is a SMA, not price as-is. Length suggested for SB is 5.

Hi there, and thank for continuing efforts.

Just one comment -- Keltner channel (standard TV indicator also uses ATR around moving average. Is there any difference?
