Features of the Bollinger Bands

  • The bands bounce the market moves back. In other words a market move originating at one band often goes all the way up or down to the other band.
  • Sharp market moves happen when the bands contract and approach the average. The longer the period of less volatility then the higher the possibility for a breakout of the bands.

  • A top or a bottom outside the band followed by a top or a bottom inside indicates a trend reversal.
