StdATR Squeeze Channel MT5


“The Squeeze indicator attempts to identify periods of consolidation in a market. In general the market is either in a period of quiet
consolidation or vertical price discovery. By identifying these calm periods, we have a better opportunity of getting into trades
with the potential for larger moves. Once a market enters into a “squeeze,” we watch the overall market momentum to help forecast the
market direction and await a release of market energy.”

The StdATR Squeeze Channel combines standard deviation and average true range channels
and email/message alerts to improve on the Bollinger band squeeze play. This is a great pattern that enables you to locate strong and
profitable trade setups, and works on all time frames.

When the market slows, low volatility draws standard deviation bands inside the average true range channel (“squeeze”). Afterward, the
release of a squeeze precedes a strong price movement, which can be very profitable if entered on time. This setup is great because the strong
movement usually allows a tight stop loss and a wide target – in many cases a 1:10 SL to TP position is reasonable, i.e., great risk-to-reward

The key to the squeeze setup is 
entering on time, which is where StDATR Squeeze Channel excels. It clearly and
quantitatively shows a squeeze onset and release, by comparing standard deviation to average true range channels. This is more robust,
easier to use, and allows better entries than simple Bollinger bands, which would require you to estimate a squeeze onset/release. We have
email and message alertsto help you track multiple assets and enter on time.

This indicator is particularly well suited for traders who currently use Bollinger bands, and/or enjoy squeeze plays.

  • StDev bands inside ATR bands marks a ‘squeeze,’ and indicates a likely major upcoming price movement. The space between StDev and ATR
    bands indicates headroom for directional movement. Wait for squeeze that lasts more than 4 candles using 
    squeeze channel.
  • When squeeze is released, trade in the direction of price movement
