PipTick ATR

PipTick ATR indicator is a really helpful tool for measuring the range of bars. It quickly and easily helps to evaluate the current spread (range) of the ATR, which is especially useful for VSA traders. The indicator for the classification of the range of bars (candles) uses moving average and its multiples. Accordingly, the area where the volume is located (relative to the moving average) is labeled as ultra low, low, average, high, very high or ultra high. PipTick ATR indicator is rendered as a histogram.

This indicator can calculate the moving average by four methods:

  • SMA - Simple Moving Average
  • SMMA - Smoothed Moving Average
  • EMA - Exponential Moving Average
  • LWMA - Linear Weighted Moving Average


By default, there are six zones which can be changed by user. Depending on which zone corresponds to the ATR, the bar of histogram is colored by appropriate color. This way you can easily recognize how high the ATR (spread/range) is, in comparison with the previous bars.

  • Ultra Low ATR zone - gray
  • Low ATR zone - white
  • Average ATR zone - aqua
  • High ATR zone - deep sky blue
  • Very High ATR zone - royal blue
  • Ultra High ATR zone - blue
