Currently, Keltner Channels are among the most common channel-type indicators. They are reflected in Chester Keltner's book How to Make Money in the Stock Market. A little later, the Keltner indicator was changed by Linda Raschke, who finalized and adapted the work program of the current exchange employees. Linda Raschke modernized and published the newest version of the fading channel and began using the Wilder range (average, true). This channel continues to exist to this day.

Keltner channels are trend indicators that represent three bars on a chart. They determine the trend and flat in the market, and also give pretty good signals for buying binary options. In appearance and characteristics, it is similar to Bollinger Bands or another channel-type indicator. The central line is formed with an interval of 20, less often - 10.

How to trade using the Keltner Channel indicator

Trading operations in flat

Keltner Channel

Trading operations using the Keltner Channels in a flat market are simple. If the value of an asset is close to or intersects with the upper boundary of the channel, this is a signal to open a call option. When the price approaches or crosses the lower border of the channel, there will be a signal that it is time to buy a put option. However, an exception and an excellent signal is the case in which the candle was not created completely outside the boundaries of the channel, but covers the border. In this case, the size of the candle does not play any role. This makes it possible to avoid unprofitable trades.
