BB 25 with Barcolors

62 1 5
6/19/15 I added confirmation highlight bars to the code. In other words, if a candle bounced off the lower Bollinger band , it needed one more close above the previous candle to confirm a higher probability that a change in investor sentiment has reversed. Same is true for upper Bollinger band bounces. I also added confirmation highlight bars to the 100 sma (the basis). The idea is that lower and upper bands are potential points of support and resistance . The same is true of the basis if a trend is to continue. 6/28/15 I added a plotshape to identify closes above/below TLine. One thing this system points out is it operates best in a trend reversal. Consolidations will whipsaw the indicator too much. I have found that when this happens, if using daily candles, switch to hourly, 30 min, etc., to catch a better signal. Nothing moves in a straight line. As with any indicator, it is a tool to be used in conjunction with the art AND science of trading. As always, try the indicator for a time so that you are comfortable enough to use real money. This is designed to be used with "BB 100 with Barcolors".

// BB 25 with Barcolors by Robert Waddell
// I came across an unusual Bollinger Band setup where they use 100 sma and a 25 (not 20) sma.
// I've seen it traded on a 1 hr chart.  I noticed that the combo (100 & 25) produced interesting
// results with bounces off the hourly chart.  you have to load the BB 25 with barcolors
// and the BB 100 with Barcolors seperately.  Also, repo32's "BuySellEMA" is included in the chart
// and provides 8EMA buy/sell signals.  If you see something that needs changing, go for it.
