Introduction to the Starc Bands Indicator
The Starc Bands Indicator means Stoller Average Range Channels Bands indicator. In fact, it works in a similar manner to the Bollinger Band.
The upper and lower bands are calculated around a simple moving average to predict price movement. A price swing to the upper band means potential pullback towards the central moving average, and a swing to the lower band indicates a potential upward move to the central moving average.
The indicator is plotted directly on the main trading chart.
We suggest to use it as a filter for opening and exiting transactions. Go ahead and add it to your best trading system.
It fits all kinds of timeframes and currency pairs.
The default indicator settings can be modified directly from the input tab. Feel free to experiment with the settings and parameters to fit your personal preferences.

The Starc Bands indicator is well worth adding to your trading collection but remember about having realistic expectations. Just like any other technical analysis tool, is not capable of providing accurate signals 100% of the time. Thus, it will provide false signals occasionally. Its performance will vary significantly depending on market conditions. Feel free to develop your own trading system based around it.
