Since Bollinger Bands are just standard deviation bands, I think you're really looking for a standard deviation indicator:

First a thanks to Zeller4 for his contribution to this indicator.

I trade a simply as possbile, by reading the PRICE action, then only do I see if a simple indicator can confirm.

The Bollenger Bands work, is that when you start a TREND, the Top and Bottom Band EXPAND, and when there is NO trend they CONTRACT. By measuring the Width of the Bands, as soon as the WIDTH BANDS makes a turn UP from the Bottom, you will see a very sharp turn in the upper band for a LONG entry, or if the Botton Band turns down very sharply you have an Entry for a SHORT. By just looking at the BB Width indicator, you can tell if you are starting a TREND move (up or down) if the indicator goes UP (i.e. Widening of the BB Bands). As soon as the BB Width indicator starts to go down and remains in a flat position, you are in a CHOP zone (i.e. called a squeeze). Look at the Green circles on the chart for the sharp turn and the indicator pointing up. See also the Chop zone where the indicator is going down and Flat at the bottom.

I hope this can help some traders as an extra tool and also another way of looking at a chart.

Perry

I will call @perryg for you to see if he can answer.

Welcome to the forum.

Mike

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.
6)
