That’s How I Boll - Using Bollinger Bands


Recommended Posts

Hello fellow traders. I find Bollinger bands to be one of the most useful technical tools. Just wanted to find out how other people use them to maximum effect. I tend to set alerts within Commodities, Indices & Forex (shares haven’t worked so well) when price trades below the Bollinger and then place an order for when it ticks up again. I keep an eye on MACD & volume, but sometimes ignore these. I set limits at just below the middle line, depending on historic bounce backs and stops at support. Simplistic yes! But so far so good.

 

Does anyone have any other techniques or great markets to trade upon?

Hi ,  interesting use of BB and easy to see how that entry system would work (considering about 95% of price action is captured within the B bands when set at 2 standard deviations) and getting out at the central sma. Have you ever experimented using it the other way round? As in getting in on a bounce off the 20 sma. I admit I don't routinely use BB but have always found it an interesting indicator.

    • Looks like it's a flat squib affair for the SP500 - I'm away early next week, but I'd give this until Tuesday (max 3 weeks after the physical date) to do something otherwise I'm marking it down as a failure Which is not bad, out of all the TC's this one is the one to be most concerned won't work, especially during an UP Bullish major cycle, which is what we are in, but the expectation was for the market to react as per May 2012 as shown on the Internal cycle harmonic chart in the post directly above So unless we get a 7%+ correction from the highs next week - I'll simply log this as failed - remember we trade the market NOT the Time Cycle  The small correction into the actual date is NOT good enough to say that was it! - We should be able to see these corrections/upswings clearly on a monthly chart, which means they should be of significance I'll hold off publishing the next Time Cycle just in case something happens next week SP500 Index Daily Chart: data to Thursday 17th June 2021
