'standard' = the same of any instruments, just use 2%. Indicator is Bollinger on indicator list.

Thank you,



For time frame D1 , the std deviation is 0.2, for H4, and H1, is the std deviation remain the same as D1, or could

be amended to suit better performance. For Bollinger band set-up, normally, the default is 20.2, however, there

experience ed traders who use 12.2, so, what do you think is the usual, effective and practical set-up. Thank you for

opinion and experience offer.

Yes, I have read that there are other traders that use BB 12.2 as the standard setting. So, we hope those traders who

practice the above settings , please come forward and give their comments/opinions/feedbacks on their trading style.

Such feedbacks are vital for the success of the upkeek of thius Forum, thank you.
