Keltner Bands Gold Trading Analysis and Keltner Bands Gold Trading Signals
Developed by Chester Keltner. Described in his book "How to Make Money in Commodities"
Keltner Bands are based on ATR technical indicator, the bands use ATR values to draw the bands lines.
These Bands form Channels that help to identify the Gold market trends using this simple volatility channel.
Keltner Channels are similar to Bollinger Bands except for the fact that Bollinger Bands use standard deviation method to determine volatility and to draw the bands.
For the keltner bands instead of using the standard deviation the average true range (ATR) measure of volatility is used.
This indicator is an n number of periods exponential moving average of the closing gold price. These bands are created by
adding (for the upper line) and
subtracting (for the lower line)
an (n-period simple moving average of an n-period ATR) * an ATR multiplier.
