Multicolour Bollinger Bands – Market phases

Multicolour Bollinger Bands – Market phases

Multicolour Bollinger Bands indicator that indicates market phases. It plots on the price chart, thanks to different color zones between the bands, a breakdown of the different phases that the price operates during a trend.
The different zones are identified as follows:

  • red color zone: trend is bearish, price is below the 200 periods moving average
  • orange color zone: price operate a technical rebound below the 200 periods moving average
  • yellow color zone: (phase 1 which indicate a new bearish cycle)
  • light green zone: (phase 2 which indicate a new bullish cycle)
  • dark green zone: trend is bullish, price is above the 200 periods moving average
  • grey color zone: calm phase of price
  • dark blue color zone: price is consolidating in either bullish or bearish trend
  • light blue zones: price will revert to a new opposite trend (either long or short new trend)

By identifying clearly the different market phases with the multicolour bollinger bands, the market entries by either a the beginning of a new trend or just after a rebound or a consolidating phase is easier to spot on.

A lot of other indicators with bollinger bands can be found in the prorealtime codes library on the website. Be sure to look at them to perfectly understand how the multicolour bollinger bands can help you in your trading, whatever trading style suit you the most!

    What I meant is if you could suggest a trading concept: for instance if the color becomes dark green, open long buy, sell when become light blue or grey.
    (your corresponding code (//vert foncé ( au dessus de tte moyenne mobile, cycle mur) C5= (MM200<MM50)and(MM50<close)and(MM20<close))

    With combining moving averages, often delayed trade triggers are generated ( the actual close have moved too far in the direction), which will reduce or erase profits
    So I wonder if you could suggest a general trading concept which generally speaking generates acceptable trade signals, based upon using this model.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello Jan

    You must use this code in correspondence with other indicators, a code alone does not mean anything.
    However looking at the history of a value one can observe areas of purchase or sale.
    everyone can interpret them
    good trades
