Bollinger Bands (BB)

Bollinger Bands (BB) are a widely popular technical analysis instrument created by John Bollinger in the early 1980’s. Bollinger Bands consist of a band of three lines which are plotted in relation to security prices. The line in the middle is usually a Simple Moving Average (SMA) set to a period of 20 days (The type of trend line and period can be changed by the trader; however a 20 day moving average is by far the most popular). The SMA then serves as a base for the Upper and Lower Bands. The Upper and Lower Bands are used as a way to measure volatility by observing the relationship between the Bands and price. Typically the Upper and Lower Bands are set to two standard deviations away from the SMA (The Middle Line); however the number of standard deviations can also be adjusted by the trader.

Looking at the chart I can see it has bearish sentiment. I am expecting some pullback on this bearish trend around the 1.04817 area due to signs of struggle and exhaustion from previous candlesticks. It looks like a gartley pattern has formed which may be a good indication of trend reversal. Also, price is resting at the bottom of the bollinger bands which may be ...

Gold rose 2.1 points on Monday in very light trading as the US markets were closed in honor of President's Day.

It's starting to be a textbook rally. We had a nice intermediate decline after 3 daily cycles. We tagged the 200 SMA and turned up from there. We had the 50% pullback of the previous ICL (FIBO 50). And we broke out from the down channel. MACD crossed over and heading to the upside. RSI is entering into overbought territory but it can print an overbought zigzag ...

I'm using a WEEKLY chart for this one because I expect it to be a 30-60 day trade. $XOM is below the lower Bollinger Band, as overbought as it ever gets and supported between here and 80. Earnings have already come and gone and I'm going out uncharacteristically long to April with the 4/85s @ $.93. I would not be surprised to see this back in the $86-88 range ...

The AUDUSD has is closer to a major directional move. This is the weekly chart, and therefore this is a longer term chart for you to have a secular view of what's going on with the pair. Bollinger bands has narrowed significantly, as volatility drops. While the price settles at the main long term falling trend line. My strategy for this pair is to wait for a ...

Break above 7300 (upper end of the Bollinger band on 4-hour chart) would open doors for a cut through 7354 (record high) to a fresh record high of 7400 (upper end of the Bollinger band) Bearish scenario: Failure to take out 7300 followed by a violation at the session low of 7268 could yield a sell-off to 7184 (rising trend line).
