2 technical indicator can boost your profit

two technical indicators can increase your profit if you understand well, let me explain it for you:

bollinger band: it is a fantastic indicator in forex trading world, if you know how to use bollinger band, it is a plus point. Open 1 hour candlestick chart with bollinger band indicator, second best indicator is parabolic sar , use this together. Sell when market reach upper band corner keeping eyes on parabolic dot, if market break it then open 4 hour chart sure the next step will be that upper band, sell anything with confidence and sure you will make some good profit, same strategy when you are going to buy.

After testing Bollinger Bands extensively in 2012 and reading John Bollinger’s book on Bollinger bands here’s my summary:

“When price touches a Bollinger band, it will reverse direction, except for when it touches a band and keeps going”…

hi jala,

You are right but one thing you can try parabolic sar with bb to define your stop or profit target

Great observation. However, while personally I prefer using few indicators to decide my trades, most of the time they are different combinations. In other words, I have found little success in using the same indicators on multiple trades. Sometime I combine the Bollinger bands with the Parabolic Sar, in others I use Elliot’s Wave and customized moving averages. etc. My point, it is proven that what worked the other day may not work tomorrow so it is important to consider other combinations. Good to hear you are experiencing success though. Happy Trading!

You mean stantart MT4 indicators?

Bollinger Bands reflect direction with the 20-period SMA and volatility with the upper/lower bands. As such, they can be used to determine if prices are relatively high or low. According to Bollinger, the bands should contain 88-89% of price action, which makes a move outside the bands significant. Technically, prices are relatively high when above the upper band and relatively low when below the lower band. However, relatively high should not be regarded as bearish or as a sell signal. Likewise, relatively low should not be considered bullish or as a buy signal. Prices are high or low for a reason. As with other indicators, Bollinger Bands are not meant to be used as a stand alone tool.

To be frank it is the traders market price knowledge which ensures them the success in the forex market. Thus, having good knowledge regarding the forex market price action is critical for traders success. For me using two moving averages also helps.

If I remember right from listening to him in the late 80 s I think he said he used to gauge volatility.
I could be wrong though it was many years ago and I used to use it often for stock trading back then, I havent tried it with forex.

Thanks for the advice

when we add more indicator. we need understand it. some indicator can’t combine with your strategy. you will lose money. the best way is a keep your strategy and adjust it.we will improve our signal. we can maek money with it.

i use the SMA 200 to identify strong trends, and BB with slow schotastic to identify entry points. i use Parabolic sar sometimes but i cant rely on it…it messes me up, its not gonna identify strong reversals, and the whole game is less risky entries, especially if you day trade. my 2 cents are make the trend your friend by identifying strong trending movement and have patience then use BB and very slow schotastic for entry and enjoy the profits. not losing any money is as good as gaining money to me lol

Now this is intresting let me reasearch on this thing called Bollinger Bands!

the only thing Ive really found parabolic sar good for is identifying those “pressure release” points on overbought/sold markets where the price will suddenly jump down a couple hundred pips and the reverse in the next bar

ie the major trailing stop break points

real conditions happen in 1 out of every 100 bars, but hey free money is free

“It must be true: I read it babypips”. :o

Do you seriously believe this nonsense, Waseem?

It would take you almost no backtesting, almost no reading of trading textbooks, almost no discussion with a successful trader, or almost no real experience to determine that no simple, two-indicator trading-method can possibly produce results that are “95% positive”.
