Bollinger Bands® Introduction:
Bollinger Bands are a technical trading tool created by John Bollinger in the early 1980s. They arose from the need for adaptive trading bands and the observation that volatility was dynamic, not static as was widely believed at the time.

The purpose of Bollinger Bands is to provide a relative definition of high and low. By definition prices are high at the upper band and low at the lower band. This definition can aid in rigorous pattern recognition and is useful in comparing price action to the action of indicators to arrive at systematic trading decisions.

Bollinger Bands consist of a set of three curves drawn in relation to securities prices. The middle band is a measure of the intermediate-term trend, usually a simple moving average, that serves as the base for the upper band and lower band. The interval between the upper and lower bands and the middle band is determined by volatility, typically the standard deviation of the same data that were used for the average. The default parameters, 20 periods and two standard deviations, may be adjusted to suit your purposes.

June 2016 Excerpt
"Energy"
For reasons that are hard to understand from an historical perspective, the energy market and the stock market remain closely linked, a relatively rare direct coupling. In the past lower energy prices were mostly considered a good thing. It was thought that cheaper energy meant economic stimulus from low pump prices, lower utility bills, lower input costs to industry, etc. This year lower energy prices were seen as a bad thing, reflective of world economic stagnation or worse. Again we saw fear dominating market thinking. So we find ourselves in the perverse position as investors who are long stocks, cheering higher energy prices. Of course the energy stocks are a large part of the stock market so higher prices for the energy stocks mean higher prices for the averages. However energy is a two-edged sword and we must be careful what we wish for; there will come a time when higher energy prices are seen as a problem, not a benefit.
