- Use 3_Level_ZZ_Semafor for preparing the trade. As soon as the main big bubble '3' appears you can get ready. Important to note: DO NOT use the semafor as reversal alone because often the price will just push it further, especially in stronger trends. The semafor is not a reversal indi to follow blindly. Also I have put the colors of the 1 & 2 semafor bubbles to "none" so only the 3 bubble is visible.

Depending on the settings, Bollinger Bands usually contain 99% of the closing prices. And in sideways markets, prices tend to wander from the Upper Bollinger Band to the Lower Bollinger Band. With this being the case, many traders use Bollinger Bands to trade a simple trend fading strategy: They SELL when prices move outside the Upper Bollinger Band and BUY when prices move outside the Lower Bollinger Band. This actually works reasonably well in a sideways market, but in a trending market you get burned.

What time frames should you be tracking?
A general rule is that the longer the time frame, the more reliable the signals being given. As you drill down in time frames, the charts become more polluted with false moves and noise .

Frankly speaking, I wouldn’t use this strategy in its current form. I believe it doesn’t take advantage of an important feature of the Bollinger Bands and furthermore, the Momentum indicator never was one of my favorites. Then again, I didn’t use it that much so maybe my opinion is flawed. Bottom line is: I see some potential for this strategy, but it needs some improvements. If you have some great ideas regarding this one, let us know on the Forums. Good luck if you need it.
