Acceleration Bands (AB)

AUDCAD H1 (09-18-2017 1141).png

Developed by Price Headley, the Acceleration bands are based on the average trading range for each day. The values are plotted equidistant from an n-day simple moving average which serves as the center or middle band. The author indicates that successive days exceeding one of the bands tends to indicate an entry point.
Because the bands use the daily trading range (high-low) they will also expand and contract based on the volatility of the price.

The formula for Acceleration Bands
Upperband = ( High * ( 1 + 2 * (((( High - Low )/(( High + Low ) / 2 )) * 1000 ) * Factor )));
Lowerband = ( Low * ( 1 - 2 * (((( High - Low )/(( High + Low ) / 2 )) * 1000 ) * Factor )));

Could you develop an alert that indicates when the price goes outside of the Acceleration Bands?

Hi there, I love your acceleration bands and I was wondering whether I could do some backtesting with them. Unfortunately, I get a FXCM Trading Station error in the Strategy Backtester.

"The input value is incorrect. The value must be in the range from 0.01 to 0.0001."

The value referenced is the "FACTOR" under parameters. Even if I type 0.01 or 0.001 (or xx2) it doesn't work. Would you mind having a look?

Thanks a lot and thanks also for sharing this great CI!

There is no link, I just used your custom indicator to do a back-test strategy. Would that not usually work "out of the box"?
