Bollinger bands are three lines (bands); one being the middle base, while the other two being the standard deviations up and down, that widen or compress with the market changes.
When the price of a Forex market as a whole is quite the bands used in the chart contract and vice versa. Thus when the price changes either go up or down, the bands expand accordingly indicating the market’s movement too.
Using Bollinger bands
While calculating the market conditions using the bands one needs to be aware of the three bands, namely :
- Upper Band i.e. Middle band + 2 standard deviations
- Middle Band i.e. 20-period moving average ((or any other standard period of time)
- Lower Band i.e. Middle band – 2 standard deviations.
The middle band is basically a base for both the upper and lower. It is a 20-day simple moving average while the other bands are two Standard Deviations away from the centerline.
By looking at these bands, one can easily predict when will the stock price head in the near future. Also, an idea of the lowest margins and the highest margins can be understood.
