Bollinger Bands and Fibonacci Ratios

Another technical analysis tool that is based on the standard Bollinger Bands indicator is the Fibonacci Bollinger Bands. It is almost the same as the standard Bollinger Bands with the difference that instead of using the standard deviation to calculate the volatility of the asset, the Fibonacci Bollinger Bands uses Wilders Smoothed indicator (Wilder Volatility Index - Average True Range), also known as ATR - Average True Range.

Once the Wilders Smoothed value, ATR, is calculated, three upper bands and 3 lower bands are created by multiplying this ATR value with positive and negative Fibonacci factors and then adding the result to the middle band, which is based on the simple moving average of the close price. These Fibonacci factors are: 1.618, 2.618 and 4.236.

The trading indicator name is "bbandsFibo" and the 7 lines that compose the Fibonacci Bollinger Bands can be created using the following formula:

per = 20;
bbf = BbandsFibo(per);
UpperBand3 =SMA(close, per) + ( 4.236 * bbf);
UpperBand2=SMA(close, per) + ( 2.618 * bbf);
UpperBand1=SMA(close, per) + ( 1.618 * bbf);
MidPoint0=SMA(close, per);
LowerBand1=SMA(close, per) - ( 1.618 * bbf);
LowerBand2=SMA(close, per) - ( 2.618 * bbf);
LowerBand3=SMA(close, per) - ( 4.236 * bbf);

The Bollinger Bands Fibonacci Ratios indicator is used in stock, commodity and Forex trading and it can be added to a trading system to detect price reversals, which often occur when the stock or commodity price touches the upper (crosses above) or lower band (crosses below). These bands widen when the volatility as measured by the Average True Range becomes higher and decreases as the volatility of the asset decreases.

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.
