When trading on Bollinger bands, most of the time safer bet is to use fakeout instead of breakout as an entry signal. Various tests are clearly showing that using BB boundaries as an alternative to find price high/low within the trend simply works.
For the best results, trade with professional ECN/STP broker with MT4. If you can't trade with profit. Automatically copy the traders that are already profitable.
This expert advisor therefore uses MACD to identify major trend and bollinger bands to find suitable entry point at relatively high/low price.
This expert advisor works with wide range of settings, and different calculation periods for both BB and MACD that can be applied across all currency pairs and timeframes. Additional settings as signal candle width and break even conditions are also available. This expert advisor can help you to rapidly test your ideas for bollinger bands strategies and help you find statistically most reliable entry. Various settings allow this expert to work as scalping strategy or day trading tool.
