Multiple Keltner Channels (amaMultiKeltner) 5 *
Version 1.6 November 25, 2017

The Multiple Keltner Channels are a generalized version of the Keltner Channels.

Standard Keltner channels are built from a simple moving average (SMA) and two channels lines above and below. The two lines above and below are drawn at a distance from the center line, a distance which is a multiple of the simple moving average of the ranges of the past N bars.

The generalized concept has the SMA replaced with any of 30 moving averages. The volatility measure used to calculate the distance of upper and lower line from the center line can be derived from an average range (AR) or average true range (ATR). You may select different lookback periods for the moving average that serves as the center line and the moving average which is applied to the range or true range.

The Multiple Keltner Channels come with an additional smoothing option for center line and channel lines. The additional smoothing is obtained by further smoothing all plots with a 3-period simple moving average (SMA).

Moving averages available for calculating the center line:

- Adaptive Laguerre Filter
- Butterworth Filter
- Distant Coefficient Filter
- Double Weighted Moving Average (DWMA)
- Exponential Hull Moving Average (EHMA)
- Gaussian Filter
- Holt EMA
- Laguerre Filter
- LinReg
- Moving Mean TPO
- Moving Median
- Moving Median TPO
- Range Weighted Moving Average (RWMA)
- Sine Weighted Moving Average (SWMA)
- SuperSmoother
- Tillson T3
- Triple Weighted Moving Average (TWMA)
- Wilder's Average
- ZerolagHATEMA
- ZerolagTEMA

Moving averages colored according to slope: You may also use this indicator to display any of the above listed moving averages and color them according to slope. The slope is not based on a geometrical concept, as this would not be compatible with the scalability of modern charting applications. The indicator adjusts slope to bar volatility such that the indicator may be used across all instruments and bar types with the same settings. The slope is shown as upsloping, downsloping or flat. The degree of flatness which is still considered as being flat may be adjusted via the neutral threshold parameter. When you set that parameter to zero, the slope will not show any flat sections, but the moving average will always be identified as upsloping or downsloping. Channel lines may be unselected, if you just wish to display the selected moving average.

Volatility measures: The standard Keltner channel uses the range. This indicator also for substituting the range with the average true range. The average true range is used as default option to facilitate the application of the Multiple Keltner Channels to other indicators.

Applying the Multiple Keltner Channels to indicators: When an indicator is used as input series, the range will always return the value 0. However, the average true range will return the absolute amount of the difference of two neighbouring data points of the selected input series. Therefore the indicator may only be applied to other indicators, as long as the offset formula is set to "True_Range".

Paint Bars: The Multiple Keltner Channel indicator comes with paint bars. The paint bars are colored according to the slope of the center line. The paint bars may be displayed without the indicator plots. The colors of the paint bar will then show the slope of the moving average selected as center line.

Sound Alerts: In case that the sound alerts are active, the indicator will alert you when the trend derived from the slope of the center line changes. Currently, there are no sound files included with the zip file, but it is easy to create them and copy them to the NinjaTrader sounds directory.

Bollinger Band Squeeze with Sound Alerts 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.11

This is a simple Bollinger Band Squeeze. The Bollinger Band Squeeze compares directional volatility as measured by the standard deviation to non-directional volatility as measured by the average range.

The squeeze is a situation, where Bollinger Bands are inside a Keltner Channel. This indicator does not plot the Bollinger Bands and the Keltner Channels, but plots the distance of the Bollinger Band from the Keltner Channel and displays it as a histogram.

When the histogram has a positive value: This means that the Bollinger Bands are outside the Keltner Channel. Directional volatility is high or normal.

When the histogram has a negative value: This shows low directional volatility, which is called "the squeeze". For better visibility, the squeeze is reinforced with dots. When activated, sound alerts will inform you that the squeeze is on.

A squeeze is a good opportunity to enter a position, as it reflects a temporary period of balancing or indecision. To determine the direction of the expected breakout from the squeeze, other indicators should be used. In his book "Mastering the Trade", John F. Carter suggests a momentum indicator do determine the direction of the trade, but I do not think that this is sufficient to create a profitable system. You will need further indicators.

If you enter a trade during a squeeze, this usually leads to a good reward-to-risk ratio, as you will typically be able to use narrower stops during low volatility periods.
