SessionVolatilityBands V38 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.7

This indicator is an old version and there will be no more maintenance. All the features have now been integrated with the SessionPivots indicator that can be downloaded here:

The indicators that come with the SessionPivots package also allow to display weekly and monthly average ranges.

Indicator will only run on NT 7.0.1000.5 or later.

The indicator detects the Average Daily Ranges (ADR) for two selectable periods and uses them to calculate intraday targets, which are displayed as volatility bands. The upper target band is calculated by adding the average daily ranges for the two periods to the current session's low. The lower band is calculated by subtracting the average daily ranges from the current day's high.

All daily ranges and bands can be calculated and displayed for the full session or any intraday (RTH) session defined via the template. It is recommended to display both ETH and RTH volatility bands by applying the indicator to the chart twice with different settings.

The indicator also can display OHL and Dynamic Fib Lines for the current session.

Indicator Settings

Band Type: The bands will auto-adjust to the current day's high and low, until the expected daily range is exceeded for both of the lookback periods. In this case the bands will freeze and change color (Band Type "Freeze"), stop (Band Type "Stop") or further expand (Band Type "Expand", requires a second expansion target).

Default BandRange: The default setting uses 100% of the ADR of the selected period. Instead of using 100% you can select any other percentage to calculate the intraday target bands.

Expanded BandRange: This is required for the Band Type "Expand". The default setting uses 127% of the ADR of the selected period. Instead of using 127% you can select any other percentage to calculate the second level of the intraday target bands.

Include After-Session : If set to true, the volatility bands of an intraday session will be extended to the next session, the after-session, but not recalculated. Default value is "false".

Period(1) for the average daily range: This is the period used to calculate the shorter average daily range. Default value is 3 days, maximum selectable is 100 days.

Period(2) for the average daily range: This is period used to calcualte the longer average daily range. Default value is 10 days, maximum selectable is 100 days.

Session: Select between the full ETH and the RTH session. Default value is "ETH."

Session for RTH: Select the RTH session, for which you want to display the bands. For FOREX, you would select "First" for the Asian session, "Second" for the European session and "Third" for the US session, if you use a session template with 3 intraday sessions. For ES you would select "Second", if your session is divided into night and day session. Default value is "Second". This option only applies, if "RTH" has been selected under "Session". A hybrid setting selects the third intraday session for FOREX and currency futures, and the second intraday session for all other futures contracts. Only select it, if you use triple session templates (Asian, European, US) for FOREX and Currency Futures.

Show Current Open: Selects or unselects Current Open.

Show Dynamic Fib Lines
: Selects or unselects intraday Fibonacci retracements. Fib retracements will only be shown if Show High/Low is set to true.

Show High/Low
: Selects or unselects to show the current day's high and low.

Show Projection Bands:
Selects or unselects projection bands.

Show Projection Labels
: Selects or unselects projection band labels.

Show Range Data
: Displays average daily ranges and current day's range for the selected session in the upper left or upper right corner of the chart.

The indicator now calculates average daily ranges without using range data from Globex holiday sessions.

Update Jan 23 2011: Globex Holiday Calendar for 2011. Holiday sessions will only be applied to Globex instruments. Price markers are now correctly formatted for US interest rate futures and FOREX. FOREX ranges are displayed in PIPS.
Update June 2, 2011: New signature for GetNextBeginEnd() implemented.
Update June 20, 2011: The indicator now works with half-pip FOREX feeds. Indicator dialogue box improved.
Update June 25, 2011: Band colors were not serialized and therefore did not keep the selected color, when saved as part of a template or workspace.
Update July 11, 2011: Different band types are available. Once the daily target range has been exceeded, bands will change color and can be frozen, further expanded or cut off.
Update July 18, 2011: Serialization of the plots changed.
Update September 11, 2011: Expanded bands did not display correctly on days when both upper and lower range targets were hit. Bug removed.
Update September 24, 2011: ChartControl checked for null, indicator can now be called by strategies.
