What a Bollinger Bands/Lagging span cross can tell us ?

Hi everyone

Hope life is good and you're all getting filthy rich (or at least not wrecking yourself too much on the markets). I'm here to help anyway

Years ago when I was a young trader, I learnt this technique from a great French trader going with the pseudo of RobbyTrade : you can give him a follow here if you understand french Robbytrade
Basically, he noticed that when a Bollinger Band is being crossed by the Ichimoku Lagging span, it could gives a very interesting signal.
In the example above, we see that when the lagging span cross the lower bollinger band , then the candles will accelerate their downward trend more. Pretty cool right ?

I insist however to say that those are not self-sufficient to trade with BUT are certainly very useful to be used WITH your own indicators. This will give you more confidence in your position as you know it might accelerate

"But sir, who the hell, could think of this in the first place ?" I know... certainly not me but now that I know this technique, I cannot NOT trade without it. This works with all assets class (FOREX/CRYPTO/INDEX/...)

I'll post the related indicator I developed to track those signals via alerts a bit later today.

@Nanda86, great question
if the entry is the bollinger band/Lagging span cross, I would say if the lagging span cross the bollinger band from outside the band to the inside, then itw will invalidate the entry and one will have to exit the position

As I could get today's lagging span value 26 days later, I have to wait 26 days to know whether the lagging span is crossing the bollinger band today. Then the signal doesn't have any meaning , because 26days has passed. How can I trade according it?

@pmw0925, At the current candle, the lagging span is 26 days behind.
So let's say it's 00:00 and I get a bearish signal. I'll get a signal at 00:00 because the lagging span which is the current price offseted 26 candles behind (but still based on the current candle) will cross the lower bollinger band from 26 candles ago
Let me know if not clear

@Daveatt, so you mean, I will get a bearish signal today if current price cross the lower bollinger band from 26 candles ago. Am I right?

@pmw0925, you'll get a bearish signal today if the lagging span (not the current price) which is the offset of the current candle but placed 26 candles ago on the lef cross the bollinger band from 26 candles ago
Lagging span is not the candle 26 periods ago, it's the left 26 offset of the current candle.
