Donchian MA Bands [LuxAlgo]

The Donchian MA Bands script is a complete trend indicator derived from the popular Donchian channel indicator as well as various customizable moving averages to estimate trend direction and build support/resistance levels & zones.

🔶 USAGE


The indicator outputs various elements, the main ones being a lower dynamic zone (blue by default), an upper dynamic zone (in orange by default), and one support and resistance level/zones (red/green by default).

A prominent lower zone is indicative of an uptrend, while a prominent upper zone is indicative of a downtrend. These zones can be used as support/resistance as well.

Support/resistance zones and levels can be used using a breakout methodology or to determine price bounced if a level was tested multiple times.

The indicator contains various modes affecting the output of the indicator, described below.

🔹Clouds


Clouds return one upper/lower dynamic zone and look/act similarly to a trailing stop. Price over the lower zone is indicative of an uptrend, and price under the upper zone is indicative of a downtrend.

🔹Upper Band


The upper band mode returns a dynamic zone closer to prices during an uptrend, and farther away during a downtrend.

This band can act as a support during uptrends.

🔹Lower Band


The lower band mode returns a dynamic zone closer to prices during an uptrend, and farther away during a downtrend.

This band can act as a resistance during downtrends.

🔹Bands


Bands return both upper and lower zones, the zones are more apparent depending on the price trend direction, with uptrends being indicated by a more visible lower zone, and downtrends being indicated by a more visible upper zone.

Breakout dots are highlighted when price breakout the indicator displayed extremities, and can be indicative of a confirmed trend reversal.


These breakouts can be more effective for trend following during trending markets. Ranging markets might return breakouts highlighting the top/bottom.

🔶 DETAILS

The core of this script is the highest / lowest mean average (MA) value for a given number of bars back (Donchian lines).

This is repeated a few times with the obtained values.

When Bands are chosen (Style) this will be repeated 1 more time.

The type of mean average can be customized (Type MA), as well as the number of bars back (Length).

Depending on the choice of bands (Style) the script will focus on certain area's of interest.

When the option Clouds, Upper band or Lower band is chosen, an extra feature, support/resistance (S/R), will be shown.
These color-filled areas are visible when there is a difference between the 2nd and 3rd highest/lowest values.
The lines/areas can be used for stop loss, entry, exit,...
You can set the type of MA and Length separately (Settings -> S/R).
If you don't need this feature, simply set Type (Settings -> S/R) -> NONE
The shape sometimes resembles triangles, indicating a potential direction

Default the average of the highest and lowest values is plotted (Style -> Mid Donchian)
This can act as potential support/resistance or visualization of the trend, the mean average is not plotted but can be (Style -> MA)


🔹 Note

When the option Bands is chosen, an indication is plotted when the closing price breaks above the highest band or breaks below the lower band. This isn't necessarily a buy/sell signal, it is merely a signal that these lines are broken.

Users should decide on their own how they use the bands/lines/areas as entry, exit, trailing stop, stop loss, profit taking,...
