What do you mean with K8 > K20?

Are you talking about the channel width?

The channel width is based on a moving average of the simple range, or on the average true range.

In case you wish to compare the channel width and select an EMA as moving average, you can simply compare the EMA (TrueRange, 8) with the EMA(TrueRange, 20) .

No need to setup a Keltner Channel.

What are your exact indicator settings for the Keltner Channel?

I'm using the Keltner Universal for the MA...K8.UpTrend [0] >0. Not using the channel.

I would like to use the midline of your indicator for K8.?? > K20.?? rather than NT's EMA (8)[0] > SMA (20) [0].

Current settings;
K8= anaKeltnerUniversal(8, anaKeltnerMAType.EMA, anaKeltnerMAType.EMA, 2, 8, anaKeltnerRangeType.TrueRange, false, 0);
K20= anaKeltnerUniversal(20, anaKeltnerMAType.Median, anaKeltnerMAType.SMA, 2, 20, anaKeltnerRangeType.TrueRange, false, 30);

A separate question- do you have the midline only (as in Keltner Universal) available stand alone?

Appreciate your time and responses.

@KrazyTrader mid line is Moving Average... anaKeltnerMAType.EMA = EMA, anaKeltnerMAType.SMA = SMA

I do not have the midband available as a standalone indicator, but it comes with the anaKeltnerUniversal or anaBollingerUniversal indicators.

If you do not wish to have the channels displayed, you can simply switch them off. Add this to the Initialize() or OnStartup() section of your indicator or strategy:
 
Code
K8.ShowChannel = false;
K20.ShowChannel = false;

For the trend filter you can use either the two Keltner Channels or the moving averages.

 
Code
bool condition = (K8.Middle[0] > K20.Middle[0]);

will produce exactly the same result as
 
Code
bool condition = (EMA(8)[0] > SMA(20)[0]);

I do not see any valid reason to use the Keltner Channels, unless you go for the colors. The use of EMA and SMA is more CPU efficient.

That's great advice. I Hadn't considered CPU.
