Classic Keltner Channel

This indicator works depending on the classic ten-day moving average rule described by Chester W. Keltner (1909–1998). All parameters are set to the classic version of Keltner system by default, while the user can change them if he want.

About Keltner Channel Formula

  1. Calculate the Center Line as a simple moving average from the Typical Price (= (High + Low + Close) / 3).
  2. Calculate The Average Daily Range (ADR) which is the average difference between high and low, with the same period and calculation method for the center-line.
  3. Keltner Buy Line = Center Line + ADR.
  4. Keltner Sell Line = Center Line – ADR.

Keltner 10 day moving average rule

  1. When price line close above Keltner Buy Line then buy. Use Keltner Sell Line as a stop and reverse from buy to sell.
  2. When price line close below Keltner Sell Line then sell. Use Keltner Buy Line as a stop and reverse from sell to buy.
