Donchian cross

I have looked but not found one, but am curious if anyone knows of a Donchian Channel indicator that will change color (or give some other signal) when there is a crossover.

I made a few of those

could you explain what you mean by crossover. or even better show it on a chart. I made a version that changes colors when the mean is going up or down. if you like the color change when price closes above or below the mean, that's just a simple modification.

Something like this. Not necessarily the background color change, I just used the highlighter to show the areas. I was hoping to be able to change the donchian color when one was above the other.

Answer
This post has been selected as an answer to the original posters question Answer

Here is a Donchian Channel with a few options added.

(1) You may use "high/low" or "close" to draw the Donchian Channel.

(2) It determines the major trend via "crossover" of the outer bands.

(3) It determines the minor trend via "crossover" between outer band and midband.

(4) It has an option to display the midband.

It works pretty well with the exception that it reacts with a lag to sudden price moves, which of course is a general property of highs and lows that you determine over a period of N bars. I think there is some room for improvement. at least on time based charts.

On Range charts you will not experience this inconvenient as the sudden price move will create a larger number of range bars, thus reducing the lag of the Donchian Channel in those cases.

Here is the same Donchian channel applied to a 6-Range chart for ES 09-12, which covers approximately the same period as the chart of the previous post.

I think that it can be better used as a trendfilter on this chart compared to the minute chart. For the minute chart we would need to create an adaptive Donchian Channel, which adapts its period to directional volatility. This would be a little challenge to produce.

Not an issue. I use it on range charts. Thanks so much, you put a lot into this community.

@Fat Tails

I recently had a look at this indicator.

When I change the channel lines width only the upper channel line width changes. Is it possible to change the lower channel line width, too?

There is a different color than the ones for strong and weak uptrend where I put the arrow on the chart. Is it because I use the indicator with COBC=false?
