Range Exhaustion occurs when price meets or exceeds the expected range for the current period. At these levels, price starts to lose its momentum relative to earlier in the period, so its a good point to make sure you are not taking new positions.
This indicator will show you where this is likely to happen on your chart, showing levels for Daily, Weekly and Monthly periods.
When you see price exceeding these exhaustion levels, it's telling you that the momentum behind the move is very strong and likely heading for the higher timeframe level.
The indicator can use the Average True Range (ATR) or the Average Range (ADR) calculation, depending on your preferences. By default we use ATR as we find it works better on Forex charts, but ADR does have the edge on Stock based indices and symbols.
The indicator has a number of drawing modes, described below, that allow you to tailor it to your needs.
Choose from AverageTrueRange (ATR) or AverageDailyRange (ADR) for calculating the levels.
The indicator can display in different ways.
- Draw Price Adjusted Line - The level adjusts through the period, based on Highs and Lows reached. This is the default and most commonly used method.
- Draw Expected Maximum - The level is a fixed value, being the last period close plus or minus the ATR or ADR value.
- Draw Both Lines - Shows both the above lines.
- Draw Rectangles - Shows a single rectangle where the top and bottom lines are the Price Adjusted and Expected Max/Min
The period to use when calculating the ATR/ADR values.
