Post #9069 - In reply to #9068

I searched for the referenced info in the above post, and did not locate it so that a link could be provided. If others are more successful in finding it, please post the link(s) to it in this thread near this post.

So at least some of it is included here from my computer records.

>>one old post (110629) follows, and also please see the annotated chart that is attached.>>>

One easy and important Bollinger Bands (BBs) feature that makes forecasting the viability of a move out of a squeeze (or any othr BB state) much more reliable is observing the movement of the opposing band. That is, if a move in price is up, look for a move down in the lower band to confirm the up move, and to gauge its strength. A bigger expansion angle of the lower (and upper) band generally indicates a forthcoming bigger and more certain move up When the lower band reverses up, that usually indicates the more certain part of the move up is over. Some traders exit half of the position here, and go on close watch of the play with their finger on the exit trigger for the last half. Other traders just exit 100% of the position on the lower band turn upwards, and go looking for other easier low risk, high probability trades. As may be known, the relatively large band expansion is often referred to as a BB bubble.

A fairly recent marked up example is attached, plus a review of samples/attachments in previous posts in this thread will help demonstrate this simple, but powerful BBs feature.

It is hoped that this simple post proves useful to at least some forum users.

Regards,

Jim B.

FYI - For next week, 29 earnings stocks met Group criteria, and 14 met SUB criteria.

By convention, the new earnings quarter kicks off Monday AMC with AA releasing its earnings info.

Good luck.

FYI - The often given "heads-up" concerning FOMC activity is not provided in the attachment in Notes for days leading up to Wednesday because at this stage, everyone likely knows of the potential importance to market price action:
2:00pmUS - FOMC Meeting Announcement - **


An additional "place-holder" is added for premarket activity observed in the VT map:
Pre Market Action via VT (may duplicate some of the above entries)
Up –
Down –

Good luck.

FYI - Last night it was not known if this list would be verified this weekend - so it was not mentioned.

Attached are txt files containing the 221 earnings stocks for the upcoming week that met SUB criteria.

Good luck.

FYI - As is likely already known, for the upcoming week, the most likely potential big market mover is the Government Jobs numbers to be released Friday morning BMO. However, as noted in the attached, there are several other reports with market moving potential.

Good luck.

Just FYI

With about 20 minutes until market open, below are the observations thus far. The template in the Economic Calendar is filled in.

Hope this is of interest to a least one, or a few, forum members.

It would be interesting to see what your pre market analysis was.

Good luck!

Jim B.

The U.S. Government Jobs Numbers to be release Friday BMO likely have the most potential to move the (U.S.) markets.

For next week, 21 earnings stocks met Group criteria, and 36 met SUB criteria. Note that the Xcel file with release info includes all earnings stocks for the week; the bold symbols are those that met Group criteria, others are either deleted (and so indicated) or met SUB criteria.

Good luck.
