  • There are several different approaches to apply the concept of a “Rubber Band Trade.” For the purpose of this list, the strategy involves the use of three separate indicators. The indicators are a 50-day, 4 ATR Keltner Channel; a 5-day Aroon Oscillator; and a 10-day Stochastics RSI.

    The use the Keltner Channel is used to identify extreme directional moves. The Keltner Channel uses a 50-day exponential moving average along with volatility bands set to four times the 14-day ATR. The longer-term moving average coupled with a high ATR range makes the occurrence more significant and rarer.

    The Aroon Oscillator is used to see that the price has been trading consistently lower over the previous 5-day period. The 10-day Stochastics RSI is used to see that the RSI is trading in the lower end of the prior 10-day period.

    Putting these indicators together, a bullish signal is when the price closes below the lower Keltner Channel, the Aroon Oscillator is at -100 and the Stochastics RSI has both lines below 10. A bearish signal is just the opposite with the price closing above the Keltner Channel, the Aroon Oscillator is at 100 and the Stochastics RSI has both lines above 90.
