The Donchian VR indicator is an improved version of the Donchian channel. Improvements have been made to almost all channel functions, but the basic algorithm and channel construction have been preserved. The indicator now changes the color of the levels depending on the current trend - this clearly shows the trader a change in the trend direction or flat. The ability to inform the trader about the breakthrough of one of the two channel levels via smartphone, email, or in the MetaTrader terminal itself was added as well. Price tags have been added that allow the trader to see the prices of the levels on the chart. The algorithm of the classic Donchian indicator has been optimized and accelerated due to the fact that the trader can set the number of periods for the indicator to calculate himself. The classic Donchian indicator calculates the entire history available in the MetaTrader terminal, which heavily burdensThe MetaTrader terminal with mathematical calculations. The VR Donchian indicator only calculates the amount that the trader has set, which reduces the load on the MetaTrader terminal by tens or even hundreds of times.
The rule of trend detection:
If a new local high is higher than the previous one and a new local low is higher than the previous one, it is considered that the trading instrument is in an uptrend.
If a new local high is lower than the previous one and a new local low is lower than the previous one, it is considered that the trading instrument is in a downtrend.
If we cannot apply any of the two rules described above to the current trend it is considered that there is no certainty on the trading instrument - it has entered flat.
