BB and Keltner Squeeze

Strategy using the Bollinger band with the Keltner Channels . Watch for the Bollinger bands (blue/red lines) squeezing inside the Keltner Channels (pink dots) for a breakout - this could be up or down so use in conjunction with other indicators.

The blue band is the 2 standard deviation from price, the red is 3 standard deviations. With these, typically if the price bounces off the red then it will retrace a little, (although if there is a massive breakout/down this may not hold). When the bands narrow this is an indicator of consolidation, therefore with a likely upcoming breakup or down.

The pink dots are the Keltner Channels . The strategy says if the bollinger bands come inside the Keltner Channels then this is a strong indicator that the breakout is coming. Sometimes the length of time the squeeze occurs for is indicative of the length/strength of the breakout.

These indicators can be used on all timeframes but higher timeframes will be stronger and more reliable of a trend change.

Release Notes: New version - minor change to an incorrect title. No change to function of script.

@bsinclair2076, hitting 3 standard deviations on the bands is a good signal for short term long or short if you’re quick off the mark. The squeeze is tougher as it indicates breakout is coming but not when or which direction...so I use in conjunction with other indicators like previous S/R, overbought/sold RSI, waves or EMA crosses.
