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.

    • Is this the right place to leave feedback to the tech team? to others in the community, do you know what I am talking about?
    • I have tried to clarify the US share dealing charges with a live chat operative, and they were unable to communicate in a meaningful way. I would like to confirm that, as long as you trade at least 3 times in any given month, that you will only pay charges for the first month. In other words, free US share dealing is on a rolling monthly basis provided you continue to make at least 3 trades every month. Is this correct? The operative was saying that even if you trade at least 3 times every month, that only every alternate month would allow free commission. She also said this was clearly stated on the fees page, which is most definitely not the case. In addition, are the quarterly fees definitely waived if you place these 3 trades within a quarter? Thanks
