Moving Average Envelopes are percentage-based envelopes set above and below a moving average. The moving average, which forms the base for this indicator, can be a simple or exponential moving average. Each envelope is then set the same percentage above or below the moving average. This creates parallel bands that follow price action. With a moving average as the base, Moving Average Envelopes can be used as a trend following indicator. However, this indicator is not limited to just trend following. The envelopes can also be used to identify overbought and oversold levels when the trend is relatively flat.

What about autosizing, when I change the time frame from D1 to h1 or less, diagrams are very thin. How to fix it?

Is it possible to make an auto envelope out of this indicator? Automatically narrowing or widening, so that the width of the channel would always contain inside 95% of the prices? Thanks.

Yes, you can specify AutoRescale = false for Indicator attribute

Is there a way to prevent the envelope indicator auto-scaling the chart?
