Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

Does anyone have the ToS script for the modified Bollinger Bands used by Option Strategist as referenced on page
The Option Strategist Newsletter 2014 Market Review | Option Strategist

In searching for mbb or modified bollinger bands, I found that MOBO stands for modified Bollinger. I couldn't get any of the MOBO scripts in ToS to generate an SPX chart that looked like the one on the page mentioned above. Yes, I did change the standard deviations to +/-3 and +/-4. And I think I properly changed the length of the average to 20 days. I couldn't get the 4 sell signals and the 3 buy signals shown in the $SPX chart on that page.
(Yes, I added the MOBO twice. Once for each of the two standard deviation sets.)
