The True Range Bands Indicator identifies the market momentums and spots crucial price breakouts using its dynamic bands. Besides breakouts, it also identifies retracement trading signals plotted at the overbought/oversold levels outlined by the indicator.
Technically, the True Range Band works in a similar way to the Bollinger bands. However, this indicator offers a swift response to price actions and offers different types of trading options in both on-trend and off-trend markets.
The True Range Bands move based on the changes in price over the last 13 candles of your preferred timeframes. It uses a standard deviation of 1.618 for measuring the market volatility statistically.
According to our observation, the True Range Bands Indicator suits all timeframes and supports any forex or stock charts.
The True Range Bands Indicator comprises three dynamic lines. The higher line indicates the overbought level, and the line at the bottom represents the oversold level.
The mid-level plotted with dots works as a dynamic trendline. It means we can assess a basic idea about the current trend direction depending on whether the price moves above or below the trendline.
For instance, the price moves above the main trendline and then breaks above the higher band, representing a buy order opportunity following a bullish breakout and a bullish market trend condition.
You can also anticipate pullback entry setups by using the OB/OS bands. For example, a false break at the lower band(oversold) indicates the price intends to initiate a bullish move from an oversold market condition.
