New Bollinger Bands DVD now available from John Bollinger
More than 9 hours of material, including John Bollinger’s latest work taped at a recent twoday seminar in Los Angeles.
John Bollinger developed Bollinger Bands in the early 1980s. Since their introduction they have become one of the most widely used technical indicators worldwide. Bollinger Bands earned their popularity because they are so effective in helping traders assess expected price action – information vital to trading profitably. Bollinger Bands can be applied in all the financial markets, including equities, forex, commodities, and futures; and they can be used in most time frames, from very short-term periods, to hourly, daily, weekly or monthly.
This two-DVD set was taped at a two-day seminar in Los Angeles.
The theme for the seminar was Bollinger Bands: The Past, The Present and The Future. John Bollinger teaches everything you need to know about his bands, starting with the bands themselves and the basic tools that make Bollinger Band analysis so powerful. He then builds upon that foundation and shares his most recent work, including work that has never been published – new indicators and variations on the bands. Finally, he teaches strategies so you can apply and integrate all these tools into successful systems. You will learn when to enter trades, when to exit, and, most importantly, which trades to avoid. Also covered are some new methods for setting stops that marry well with Bollinger Band strategies. For anyone interested in building trading approaches that incorporate Bollinger Bands this DVD set is a must.
