# VDUB BB %B REVERSAL_v4

2843 26
By Request this is my own personal indicator modification which is just an upgrade from v3
```study(title = "VDUB BB %B REVERSAL_v4", shorttitle = "vdub_BB_%B_rev_v4")
length = input(21, minval=1)
src = input(close, title="Source")
mult = input(0.001, minval=0.001, maxval=50)
basis = sma(src, length)
dev = mult * stdev(src, length)
upper = basis + dev
lower = basis - dev
bbr = (src - lower)/(upper - lower)
plot(bbr, color=teal, style=histogram, linewidth=4)
plot(bbr, color=black, style=line, linewidth=2)
plot(bbr, color = change(bbr) <= 0 ? gray : teal, style=line)
//----
barcolor( bbr > 0 ? green :red)
//========================bgcolor=================================
//
tf = input('240' )
tf_bool = na(tf_bool[1]) ? 0 : change(time(tf)) and tf_bool[1] == 0 ? 1 : change(time(tf)) and tf_bool[1] == 1 ? 0 : tf_bool[1]
bgcolor(tf_bool == 1 ? gray : silver, transp=70, offset=100, title="BO Expiry")```
so, this appears to be bollingerband width as an oscillator, indicating reversal points when you see divergence between the price vs the value of the bb width (bbr) ?

theory being, as price momo accelerates, bb width increases, as price momo slows, bb width decreases, indicating an upcoming potential reversal

stay long when bb width (bbr) is above centerline
stay short when bb width (bbr) is below centerline

i don't see the point of the bgcolor, is it to mark the begin and ending of trading sessions for binary options, and you adjust the time using the input box?

your example chart has a bar periodicity of 2 hours (240 minutes), so that is beyond my useful timeframe for binary options. i turned off background colors.

it looks interesting, but I cannot imagine this is any better than a divergence indicator to show reversal points. just my 2 cents

so would you be able to explain the correlation between the Bollinger bands & BB% and how is it entirely possible to draw a trend line spanning across multiple time zones that have no relation to what you see using just the Bollinger band, Even though the BB% mirrors the Bollinger band direct ? I respect your technical prospective but I feel you need to step back a little and visualise it on a more harmonic level. Last week along I successfully predict moves to over 1500 pips trading this strategy. My point being, What works for me doesn't necessarily work for every body else.

A full understanding of how to read Bollinger bands goes a long way to understanding my analysis https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PWqxNtsFx1M&list=PLYagUySDzG_M67Oz80g7d9ai1UYdJxIho&index=9

I've watched that video many times thanks it will help to refresh

hey i wasn't trying to create an argument :) there was no detailed description of what it was or how to use it, so i dissected the code and figured out what it was doing.

i don't know what you mean by drawing a trendline spanning multi time zones. do you mean the red trendlines you drew on your indicator span many days?

on your top chart, April 7, 14 UTC, we have divergence where price has same low, but your indicator is higher, so it signals a potential reversal. similar to how price is near lower bband. Apr 8 06:00 you show arrow go long as indicator crosses over midline. Apr 13 06:00 you exit the trade when we have divergence at the top, price same high, indicator lower level. yes that's cool that you captured that many pips. however I'm interested in your scripts to do binary trading on 1 to 2 hour time durations, so I usually use a 5 min chart to time my entries and using divergences. on one of your scripts binary pro 2 v3 you mentioned you prefer this script,s o i was trying to see how it was used on a short time duration.

are you saying you can predict distance and duration, or the move just resulted in capturing that many pips?

I still did not understand the background color bar purpose, but i wasn't saying it was dumb. that's all.

B120626
No I didn't take it as an argument it's good to have feed back from different point of view :)
The background colour is more for Binary options in an attempt to set & estimate expiry times of which you set yourself.
The strategy is simple but I cant explain how or why it is the case. Yes as you stated, connect the highs from top to bottom ( That is your trend ) Then what appears to be divergence is in fact in relation to the Bollinger band is a Lower high or Low. ie. price spike outside then inside indicating a reversal. Only when price crosses the 'Trend' line will be your exact entry & brake out point.
Example :-

i guess i need more detail instructions.
approx Apr 12 you draw a downslopeing trend line on bb % indicator ending Apr 17
then you draw a upward sloping trendline on the price chart.
that is your divergence (Price lows are higher than previous - higher lows, but indicator is making highs that are lower - lower highs)
next you draw upslope trendline on indicator using the bottom edges of indicator
the point where they cross is your entry to go short.

now i just need to draw the lines and arrows using code :)

what kind of binary options are you playing that have such a long duration (more then 1 day)? i understnad you can change the time value of the vertical lines, i'm just wondering who the broker is? thanks

Answer this one backward. I use instaforex Options not ideal for anything less than 1hr really but 80% pay out across all instruments up to 1 month http://vdubus-channel.1113959.n5.nabble.com/Trade-Forex-amp-Options-under-the-same-account-td24.html

Almost got it. The trend lines don't have to cross. Your entry is when price crosses the directional trend line not the divergence trend line.
example: time frame is on a weekly chart so pressing play I doubt anything will show but if you check a live chart the move short has already happened

about the entry signal, do you mean when price crosses the trend line on the price chart, not the indicator portion? i think that is what this new chart is showing, just to confirm.

I post this one earlier & drew the divergence slightly wrong but looks like I got lucky. The arrow indicates a break out
vdubus
This one took me out
B120626
In the bag :)
vdubus
I am seeing it's power!
B120626
It's not the holy grail but for it's simplicity it's damn close :)
B120626
Please tell me you caught that one
vdubus
i was short USDJPY on a 5 min chart, saw same divergence, bb lower when price higher leading into the dump ! GREAT!
vdubus
thanks, unfortunately instaforex is not available to users living in the USA :(

do you use MetaTrader to write auto-trading algorithms? it seems like it would be a natural fit if you could do similar code..

i can open a demo acct in metatrader 4 or 5 and get live data feeds, just to see how the program works, in case i move outside the usa.

B120626
I wouldn't know I wouldn't like to automate this method.
You can open a demo give it a go

The hardest part is actually relaying the movements on the BB% to the actual chart itself. Thats where a good idea and use of price action come in to it's own. I've found it easier to try and find trend lines both on the chart as well as the BB% to determine a valid break out.
It take practice I think to master and to know what to look for but for me I see that I have single handedly identified a way to actually pin point trend reversal. Once you understand the concept of the Bollinger band you can switch it out, you won't need it any more.
vdubus
i think i understand it now, i'm going to play with it some more, thanks
B120626
also the same concept works exactly the same using RSI, macD & stoch. I prefer to use BB% due to it's direct correlation to the Bollinger band
