Channel Your Inner Kelt

What are Keltner Channels?

Keltner Channels are volatility-based envelopes set above and below an exponential moving average. This indicator is similar to Bollinger Bands, which use the standard deviation to set the bands. Instead of using the standard deviation, Keltner Channels use the Average True Range (ATR) to set channel distance. Read more here->(Credit: stockcharts



Why not use Bollinger Bands instead?

Personally i’m not against them or any technical indicator traders rely on. This is what best works for me and thats what matters.. Kelts give me a clearer signal to where price can end up in any given time frame. I use it as  my support and resistance indicator. This plus 14+30sma = 3 Ladies. This ill come back to very soon.


What settings do you use?

I like to keep things “SIMPLE”.

My Preferred Settings(below) tweak to your comfort..




What do you look for?

  1. I recently started using Kelts as well, Do you use it on smaller time frame like 5-15 min charts? if not how do you time your entries on these timeframes? Thank you for the hard work by the way!
