ATR Boundaries provides True Range Boundary limits for an Instrument over a specified number of periods. It’s a very effective way of setting limits to daily movements within currency pairs.
Currencies will trade within 20 period ATR Boundaries 80% of the time – and this stat alone makes this indicator extremely powerful for determining movements in currency pairs. For this reason, it’s utilised within several of our own high end automated and manual trading systems.
If you are a bit more experienced you can think of ATR boundaries as Bollinger Bands but with a defined level of accuracy so they are easier to build trading systems and strategies off of them.
