Construction

Keltner Channels are similar to Bollinger Bands except for the fact that Bollinger Bands use standard deviation method to determine volatility and to plot the bands.

For the keltner bands instead of using the standard deviation the average true range (ATR) measure of volatility is used.

 

This indicator is an n number of periods exponential moving average of the closing price. These bands are created by

adding (for the upper line) and

subtracting (for the lower line)

an (n-period simple moving average of an n-period ATR) * an ATR multiplier.
