Presentation Topic : “CHIKOBO ANALYSIS, BOLEAD-R AND K-OLL STRATEGIES “BOLLINGER. IPSE DIXIT”

The presentation speak about Bollinger Bands (BB) and his combination with other volatility bands. The first study combine the indications of the BB with part of the Ichimoku Kinko Hyo system. We will demonstrate with the BoLead-R strategy that the Ichimoku indicators have a better information content in identifying the trend than other trend indicators such as MACD. In the second study we combine the indications of the BB with the Keltner Band. In particular, the proprietary indicator K-Boll, which serves to identify the beginning of a probable squeeze of volatility, will be presented and we shall use it in the K-Boll strategy. We will see that Bollinger’s assertion “perhaps the most elegant direct application of Bollinger bands (BB) is a breakout system of volatility” can be interpreted as “perhaps the most profitable” direct application of Bollinger bands (BB) is a breakout system of volatility.
