hi man,
i 'm ayman from egypt, thank you for effort , i would be gratful if you coud explain how to spot on the w & M formation in BB.

Bollinger Band best settings 21x.6 with this settings you will see a clear trend bias, also place stop loss,and see clearer retracements levels.The std BB. settings tend to stiffle price action,with no clear indication of the trend.Always try to think outside the box.MT4 do not allow you to use .6 setting,only 1 or 2 std.
