Full Definition of STARC Bands


A type of technical indicator that is created by plotting two bands around a short-term simple moving average (SMA) of an underlying asset’s price. The upper band is created by adding a value of the average true range (ATR) – a popular indicator used by technical traders – to the moving average. The lower band is created by subtracting a value of the ATR from the SMA.

  • Upper STARC band = SMA + ATR*
  • Lower STARC band = SMA – ATR*

* The average true range (ATR) is generally multiplied by a user-specific multiplier factor before being added/subtracted from the SMA.
