Thank you like other i didnt know bb was so useful big thumbs up :)

excellent man..

since 2 years ive use this bolinger, until now understand how to use

Thank you very much for your guidance. I tried to follow the DBB but it didn't work with me properly. According to what I have understood, I saw that XAU was trending upward when I was looking at 15 minutes period, however, on an H1 period it was trending down. So what is the correct period to look at in order to get the correct DBB indication?

Thanks in advance.


Excellent work, I am a newbie in forex and first BB looked very complicated but after I've read this article it looks very easy to interpret. Thank you very much.

Good explanation and BB is a good indicator specially that double sets of BB, It help me a lot.

Great work! does anyone know where can I find (or at least review) the BB delta indicator? Also, beyond this is something called a BB Momentum indicator, where would I find information on this? Third does anyone know anything about a BB Trend Indicator, supposedly to help distinguish between trending and flat market characteristics. Anyone?

Hello everyone, I trade with the ninja trader platform and I started looking at your explanations and I must say they are very well explained and very detailed, thanks for that. Now I already set up the BB but in the preferences window under the Data section where it says "Calculate on Bar Close" it gives me the option to choose between "True" or "False" Which one should i choose in order to have a more accurate indication?

nice one.tanks
