Keltner/Bollinger Bands Squeeze

The Bollinger bands squeeze is a volatility indicator that tries to determine periods of low or high volatility in a price series. This technical indicator signals only the timing, not the direction of the trade, and for this reason, it must be used in conjunction with other technical or fundamental indicators. It is based on the idea that very low volatility periods are often followed by big moves in stock prices.

This volatility indicator is built based on the Keltner channels (average true range) and the Bollinger bands. It signals a period of low volatility (squeeze) when the low Bollinger band is higher than the low Keltner channel and the higher Bollinger band is lower than the high Keltner channel (Bar are colored in Red). The periods of high volatility are colored in Green.

How to plot the BB Squeeze trading indicator:

a = BBSqueeze(8);

=> "8" is a period passed to the function and it is the period of the exponential moving average used by the Bollinger Bands and Keltner Channel indicators.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
