# Bollinger Bands Interpretation

Bollinger Bands are a tool for graphics and technical analysis indicator created by John Bollinger in the early 1980s. They can be compared with price levels relative volatility during a given period. Bollinger Bands determine levels of resistance and support increased downside.

Bollinger Bands consist of a set of three curves on the price value. Mid-range is a measure of the medium-term trend, usually a simple moving average, which is the basis for the upper band and lower band. The interval between the upper and lower bands and the middle band is determined by volatility, typically the standard deviation of the same data used in the average.
The default settings are 20 periods and two standard deviations, but obviously adjustable according to need.

Bollinger Bands Interpretation

Formula:

TP = (High + Low + Close) / 3
Bandwidth = 2 * F * σ (TP)

Description: Bollinger Bands upper band (UB) and lower band (LB) is the default two standard deviations (STDEV) of the n latest price (Pn), above and below the Simple Moving Average (SMA) of the n latest price.

Calculation:
ADM = (P1 + P2 + P3 + P4 + ... + Pn) / n
SMA + UB = STDEV (P1 ... Pn)
LB = SMA - STDEV (P1 ... Pn)

Middle Bollinger Band = 20 period moving average
The upper Bollinger band = top + 2 * standard deviation of 20 periods
Lower Bollinger Band = - 2 * standard deviation of 20 periods

Two additional resources are derived from Bollinger Bands:
Bandwidth or bandwidth: measurement of the width of the bands. It is used to measure the overall configuration squeeze trade based on volatility.
Bandwidth = (upper Bollinger Band - lower Bollinger Band) / Band
Bollinger through

% B: distance from the position of the final price compared to bands. It is generally used to clarify the price trends and build a trading system parameter.
% B = (Current Price - Bollinger Band lower) / (upper Bollinger Band - lower Bollinger Band)

Bollinger Bands Interpretation for trading:

Bollinger bands are an indication of price volatility in recent years. If recent prices have a broader scope than the previous price, Bollinger bands develop. If final prices have smaller range than the previous price, Bollinger Bands contract.

Bollinger bands are used in different ways by different operators. Some traders make trades when price moves above or below the Bollinger bands (ie, when the price breaks out of the channel Bollinger Bands). Some traders make trades close to the moving average, and use Bollinger bands as targets. Bollinger bands are also used by traders who trade options using volatility since last change is part of the calculation of options premiums. "

# Entry Trading in an Existing Trend

Trading with the trend can be helpful for Forex traders with longer time period. But, when we are looking at a market trend it can be difficult to determine where to open position into the Forex market. Let's take a look in the chart below, we can see the pair has been trending bearish , finding to short into existing bearish trend, could be benefit as the EURUSD moved down. So how can we determine a sell price in an existing market trend? in this post we will learn on opening position the trend using a retracement.

Fibonacci retracements are the right method to measure how long foreign exchange pair may reversal against the market trend. These Fibonacci levels are measured in percentage term by calculating the difference between the last high and low in a bearish trend. In the chart below we can see the reversal levels for the pair by calculating the distance between high and low. Usually Forex trader will wait for market price trader to a 38.2%, 61.8% or 78.6% price reversal before opening position.
The 78.6% percent reversal level is usually to as the “Fibonacci level of last resort”. When market price breaks through this level of resistance, Forex traders may assume market price will keep to test the previous high. For this case forex traders will watch to see if today's daily candle closes below the 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level. If market price hold , short positions may be considered with a stop loss order above today's high.

My suggestion is to open short position the pair close our 78.6% Fibonacci retracement level upon the daily candlestick close. And stop loss orders can be plot above resistance level plot by the current daily high. And profit target should set for at least 1:2 Risk/Reward ratio.

And here are Fibonacci custom indicator you can use in your trading reversal

# Trading Supply Demand using Support Resistance

Support and resistance is assisting Forex traders determine levels in which the demand or supply in a given Forex pair may change once that level is crossed.

Demand is the number that is needed at a certain price , while supply is the number available at a particular price. As market price increase, seller's willingness to get rid of their instrument will also increase. And the other hand, buyers will demand more at lower prices,

In this following example chart, we can see m we have not seen price below 1.530 since July of 2010. There have been many instances in which market price has approached this support level - but this line has not been broken.

Support is the level at which demand starts to outstrip supply , sending market price higher.

Trading Supply Demand using Support Resistance

When trading a range , Forex trader are anticipating the market price to stay the same , with resistance or support standing its ground allowing for Forex traders to sell high and buy low.

Another strategy is the Forex trader that is expecting the market price to change, with breaks of resistance or support to make new lows or make new high. With this strategy , the Forex trader's system changes from the range trading . The purpose is now to buy high or to sell low.

# Trading RSI Divergence

Forex traders using RSI Relative Strength Index to determining Oversold and overbought. Even though oversold and overbought can help Forex trader , they often look for divergence pattern. Divergence is a powerful pattern between chart and indicator that can identify price reversals.

Usually RSI technical indicator will follow market price as the EUR price moving down so will RSI indicator too. Divergence pattern shows when indicator splits from the price and they start trading in 2 different trend directions.

To start analysis we have to compare the lows on the market chart. In a bearish trend prices should be trading lower lows and that is what the EUR trades. In the following chart , RSI technical indicator trading a series of higher low. This is the divergence pattern ! With this divergence pattern Forex traders can then plot the trading system while searching for market price to swing against the last trend and breakout to higher.

# Risk Management with ATR Indicator

Setting the right place to plot out stop loss could be a complicated. If we plot the stop loss too much , we run the risk of using a much bigger loss , but if we make our stop loss too small , we run the risk of being touched of the trade before market price trades in the way we wanted it to trade. This problem brings many Forex traders to indecision , even in some cases some forex traders do not placing stop loss on their trades. This mistake can be a dangerous trading, and could bring traders fall. This is where Average True Range or ATR can help Forex traders in these problems.

ATR indicator is made to help Forex traders in watching volatility. As the value of Average True Range decrease or increases , so will the value of average true range.

In the trading example above , the green zone marked on the market price as well as the bottom portion of the Forex market chart.

As market price traded making movements in the green area, the forex technical indicator below the market price chart properly showed this volatility. Average True Range traded smaller to show the lessened volatility in market price. Also notice the reading for Average True Range indicator in the upper, left corner of the Forex indicator.

The reading on Average True Range ATR indicator is at 0.00285 . This is in pips showed in the same price format as the foreign exchange pair. So, for AUDUSD , in which price is ar 1.0435 and ATR indicator reading of 0.00285 is 28.5 pips.

If ATR were at .00418, that would be 41.8 pips. And if ATR is at .01295, that would be 129.5 pips. ATR Average True Range indicator will always be expressed in the format of price.

Setting Stops with ATR Average True Range Indicator
After a Forex trader understands how to use Average True Range ATR indicator, much of the legwork in trading the indicator is already done. If we look in the 4H forex chart above , Average True Range ATR indicator AUDUSD was trading 28.5 pips.
In this case , Forex traders can find to plot the stop loss level ar 28.5 pips - the value of Average True Range ATR technical indicator at the time of the trade.

A forex trader could plot their risk level to 2 times the ATR indicator reading. Forex trader can finding at opening an AUDUSD position from the example above would be looking at stop of 57 pips. Or , if Forex trader want to be more aggressive can find to plot ATR indicator at half of ATR indicator value. In the AUDUSD chart above, that would be a stop of 14 pips. If this stop loss level too close to current price , Forex trader can find to customize their stop in being more aggressive conservative , setting the stop loss at multiples of the ATR indicator reading.
