9.3 Donchian Channel

The Donchian Channel by Richard Donchian is a simple band system showing an N-day highest high, N-day lowest low, and a midpoint line between them.

The N days start from yesterday, so a day which is a new N-day high or N-day low will break out of the channel. This is taken as a bullish or bearish signal (respectively).
