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.

December 2016 Excerpt
"The Bounce"
We shall skip The Bounce this year as the markets are not setting up as they should to insure a good bounce. Ideal Bounce conditions are a peak in stock prices earlier in the year, lots of stocks hitting the new lows list as the year draws to an end, lots of tax selling, and the dumping of stocks as a product of portfolio window dressing. We don't see any of that this year: We are likely to go out near the highs of the year. There are few if any new lows being made. Tax selling is simply not a factor (yet). And window dressing is far more likely to involve panic buying of 'good merchandise' than selling of 'bad merchandise'. So we are taking a pass on The Bounce until next year.
