CAP Channel Trading

The CAP Channel Trading is a volatility-based indicator that makes use of the “advanced envelope theory”. These envelopes consist of two outer lines. Envelope theory states that the market price will generally fall between the boundaries of the envelope (or channel). If prices move outside the envelope, it is a trading signal or trading opportunity.


Read the user guide

To understand the concepts behind this indicator and learn to use it, kindly read this blog post.


How to trade

Basically CAP Channel Trading can be used to help identify overbought and oversold conditions in a market. When a market’s price is close to the upper band, the market is considered overbought (buying area). Conversely, when a market’s price is close to the bottom band, the market is considered oversold (selling area). Indicator give you arrow signal when price try to reversal. It is recommended to open positions when the price comes 30 points or closer to the channel border.

However, this study can be used to help determine the strength of a price trend. Some traders use a market price move and price close that is above the upper band of the CAP Channel Trading as a buy signal, and use a push below and price close below the lower band as a sell signal.

An advantage of CAP Channel Trading indicator compared to other channel indicators is that market lag is not as pronounced because CAP Channel Trading are extremely sensitive to fluctuations in volatility.

By varying the bands on the most recent average daily price range, the channels will naturally be a greater distance from the market when the price swings are wide than when they are narrow. However, they will stay at a much more constant width than other envelope methods.

I used over 50 trades (30 min and 1H chart) on the demo account make me lose money.

Every time I refresh the chart changes the signal (repaints, never backpaints, recalculates).

Please don't waste your money.

Gracias por este gran indicador.

Dieser Indikator ist sehr schlecht. Ist ein sehr schlechter Repaint Indicator,im Handel absolut nutzlos.

Die Entry Pfeile verschieben sich ständig.

Die " Statistik " geht von dem Maximal möglichen Gewinn aus ,ab dem Zeitpunkt da der Eintritt Pfeil erscheint.

Da der Indicator aber permanent repaintet, ist Die Pseudo Statistik komplett falsch und nicht richtig !

Leider ein sehr nutzloser Indicator.

Wenn sie dafür bezahlen ist es Betrug. Der repaint Indicator ist zum Glück kostenlos,ist aber völlig nutzlos.

This indicator contains future function!!

That mean the indicator will re-calcuate the past channel value to fit the price. It is easy to write a small EA to write the indicator's channel value into a file, and monitor it. I keep track 100 unit. The indicator modify all 100 past data. No wonder the channel fit the price so nicely!!!

But it wont work in the real trade, because the indicator use future price to calcuate the current channel, when you use the current channel as the entry point, you will soon realize, after a few hour, the channel shifted.

The writer is cheater!! Dont buy it!

There are a lot indicator contains future function. Buyer need to be very careful!

The indicator redraws the channel, the current channel of the entry point offered by the adviser in real time, then does not match in history. I bought GBPEUR at the bottom of the 4 hour channel, and then after two weeks, the adviser redrawed everything and the price was in the middle of the channel not the entry point, garbage.

Indicator repaints. Better to use with a candlestick indicator to identify major candlestick reversals (e.g., bullish/bearish reversal candle, pin bar/hammer, etc.), and Bollinger Bands set to 20, 0, 2. Breach of Bollinger Bands and Channel help indicate reversal. This will improve accuracy. Set stop loss or hedge trade at high of candles that breached channel. Good indicator if you use it correctly.

Outstanding. Use 15 min chart. Wait til price hits channel line and chose your entry. I have won 11 trades in a row and this is my first day using this indicator.

********

After further testing, I have concluded this is the best indicator on the market!!! On Real account use higher time frames!

I have an EA that I am running successfully. I added this indicator to my chart and found it could be used to filter out 80% of my bad trades! Center line can be used for confirmation of other strategies for long trades below and short trades above. I also see that a number of conditions may be applied to the upper and lower bands and price correlations as well with MA's to possibly establish another EA strategy. Entries suggested by this indicator must be filtered but, they are nicely setup. icustom is required

Good channel indicator. The people who are giving 1 star reviews clearly do not know how to use it. You cannot just use it on its own, it has to be incorporated within a strategy using filters. You cannot just blindly enter a trade when price touches the upper or lower bands. I have had success using this with 1 - 2 pip renko boxes and a TMA + CG indicator, and a stochastic oscillator, as well as trading in and around key intra-day level of support and resistance. Also looking at the ADR, previous days high, low and open price, standard intra day stuff. I do recommend this indicator.

Yes this indicator repaints as it is "Dynamically Drawn" This doesn't NOT mean it is a bad indicator. You need to use it the way it is intended and be a little more sophisticated in your trading than just point and shoot when an arrow comes up! You need to confirm the trade by trading with the trend. If you also only take the trade when the price re-enters the channel as this will increase your number of winners.

This is a great Channel based indicator. The alerts generated are good entry points, I get better results though by taking the trades that follow the slope, I will only take both long & short when channel flat and ranging. I use it in combination with the CAP Zone Recovery EA Pro and I don't trade near major news events.
