Explained ATR Indicator
The true range indicator is taken as the greatest of the following: current high less the current low; the absolute value of the current high less the previous close; and the absolute value of the current low less the previous close. The average true range is then a moving average, generally using 14 days, of the true ranges.
- Average true range (ATR) is a technical indicator measuring market volatility.
