Quick Tip: Swiss Army Knife?

While we can’t predict the future exactly we can approximate the future. 

Take price action for example. Price is either: 

1. Trending and volatile.

2. Trending and quiet.

3. Range-bound and volatile.

4. Range-bound and quiet. 

A complete trade plan would include strategies that prefer one of these market conditions so you can choose which has more edge at the time. 

Knowing the present condition is easy, the challenge becomes which condition is next? When will it change

Technical indicators are helpful. Yes, most are lagging and we’re always looking for leading information but used skillfully indicators can help build your case for timing the change in market conditions. 

Here's my choice for the “Swiss army knife” of indicators, Bollinger Bands. They clearly display trends and volatility, the key data points to consider. All major platforms will have this indicator available. Study the chart above to see when trend and volatility tend to change. Back and forth. Insert it on your charts and see if it doesn’t help you.
