    Technical indicators are widely used in trading to analyze historical price data and identify potential trade signals. This Indicator is pretty accurate and shows a lot of useful information for the traders to help them enter trades with confidence.

    • Market volatility value (BBands signal)
    • Trend direction (Trend signal)
    • Trend continuation or periods of market consolidation (Signal value)
    • Periods of upcoming large volatility breakouts (BollingerBands piercing signals  - bullets)
    • Timeframe (30min,1H, 4H, 8H,12H, 1Day, 1Week) values of candlestick wicks and Bearish/Bullish Engulfing, Gaps, Harami and Doji/Hammer patterns.


    Best cTrader Indicator


    The percentage figure next to the various time-frames is calculated after the candle wicks formula and price action if you require more information click here

    The calculating formula for this is in a tight correlation with the time frame price action and time frame trend. For a better understanding, these values are colour-coded (red for bearish trend, green for bullish trend and orange for range)

    The percentage figure represents a reference to that particular timeframe and the degree number concerning the trend refers to the SMA(9) slope trend calculated in correlation with the HMA slope. Together (SMA(9) and HMA(14) give an accurate image of the trend. (bullish when the degree is positive and bearish when the degree value is negative)


    Trend direction (Trend signal and angle)

    • If HMA is greater than SMA and BBands signal in Bullish – uptrend.
    • If HMA is lower then SMA and BBands signal are Bearish - downtrend.

    • A signal about the Bollinger Bands inverted  candles (the yellow points on the graphic) – that works like reverting signals and is enough accurate (if used together with another indicator, respectively, trend slope, Dynamic RSI and MACD_Histogram)

    Market Volatility Value (BBands signal)

    When the market becomes more volatile, the bands will correspond by widening and moving away from the middle line. When the market slows down and becomes less volatile, the bands will move closer together.

    It is very simple to identify the dominating price direction by simply reading the trend signal: Bullish, Bearish or Range

    And just in case you’ve missed the beginning of the trend, Bollinger Bands can help you get in the trend with a good risk-to-reward ratio on a pullback.

    Simply look for dips towards the middle Bollinger Bands line and enter in the direction of the trend.

    When Bollinger Bands start to narrow down to the point when they are visually forming a neat tight range (measured by our proprietary formulas and not empirically) the situation signals an upcoming increase in volatility once the market breaks outside the bands. It is similar to a quiet time before the storm.


    Price moves outside the bands – trend continuation

    When the price moves and closes outside the Bollinger upper or lower bands, it implies a continuation of the trend. With it, Bollinger Bands continue to widen as volatility rises.

    Bollinger Bands alone are not able to identify continuation and reversal patterns and require support from other indicators. For this, we recommend using this indicator together with our Dynamic RSI, zero-lag MACD histogram, CCI WWS HeikenAshi and Fast Stochastic (momentum, volume and market strength indicators).


    Trend Reversal Patterns with Bollinger Bands

    As a rule, a candle closing outside Bollinger Bands followed later by a candle closing inside the Bollinger Bands serves as an early signal of forming a trend reversal. It is, however, not a 100% assurance of an immediate trend reversal. (See the blue bullets from the next image)

    Since a long aggressive trend develops not that often, there will be in general more reversals than continuation cases, still, only filter signals from other indicators may help to spot true and false market tops and bottoms.
