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 which 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.

However, WTI Crude failed to maintain it's bullish run and ended the day below the 2 important key levels. Those levels are the 21 day moving average @ 48.41 and the monthly pivot @ 48.13.

Crude Oil Moves Down $1 but Fails to Close Below Range

Crude oil closed down $1 today. During the day, my first price target @ 48.36 was hit (I mentioned that in last night's post). Crude did hit a low of 47.73 but was unable to stay below the 48 price level, and in a something of show of strength, rebounded almost a dollar off the day's lows. The closing price of 47.73 was just 2 cents shy of the 21 day moving ...

Crude Oil is Range Bound But Looking to Hit Support Again

Hi all, I've just gotten back from my extended vacation. Boy has there been a wild ride for crude, starting last Thursday. However, since then, crude has been stuck in the lower part of the range, which by the way, retraced to 38% of Thursday's range. Crude has already the 21 day moving average and it looks like it wants to test it again. If have a take profit ...

Crude Oil Breaks Through Support @ 47

Crude Oil broke through support during the overnight session with a strong push down. Now would be an excellent time to book profits and move stops lower. I've added some new targets marked by the cyan horizontal lines. The next target @ 46.09 is the confluence of the red, lower Bollinger Band and the yellow Bollinger Band.

In a clear sign that Natural Gas is range bound, the Bollinger Bands have flattened out and are contracting.

Gold closed down almost 20 points today as the FOMC announced it would not raise the Fed interest rate in May but left a rate hike on the table for June. But regardless of that news, let's look at the technical aspects of the precious metal's chart.

Crude Oil Trades to a Low of 47.35 Before Rebounding Sharply

Crude Oil dropped off 1.5 dollars, sharply breaking through the previous pivot low @ 48.20. However, at the end of the day, on the heals of the EIA report that there was a bigger than expected draw on crude oil inventories, the price of crude rebounded to close @ 48.10. In spite of the retracement, I am still bearish on Crude and expect a drop down to the trend ...
