Standard Deviation Channel MT5

- Alert, Notification and Email when price reaches a level.

- Second channel possible.


Standard Deviation Channel is built on base of Linear Regression Trend representing a usual trendline built between two points on the price chart using the method of least squares.
As a result, this line proves to be the exact median line of the changing price.
It can be considered as an equilibrium price line, and any deflection up or down indicates the superactivity of buyers or sellers respectively.

Standard Deviation Channel consists of two parallel lines, equidistant up and down from the Linear Regression Trend.
The distance between frame of the channel and regression line equals to the value of the standard deviation of the close price from the regression line.
All price changes take place within Standard Deviation Channel, where the lower frame works as support line, and the upper one does as resistance line.
Prices usually exceed the channel frames for a short time.
If they keep outside of the channel frames for a longer time than usually, it forecasts the possibility of trend turn.
