About Us
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.

January 2015 Excerpt
"Energy"
It seems that the world is catching up with us. We have argued all along that the decline in the price of crude was not driven by some miraculous reduction in demand; rather that it was purposely engineered by OPEC members in a move to disrupt the march towards American energy independence. An article published last Friday on Bloomberg under the title "How OPEC Weaponized the Price of Oil Against U.S. Drillers", http:// bloom.bg/1wQqaTG, gets right to the point. Over the weekend a Saudi minister declared that crude oil will never trade above $100 again. Clearly our move from a long-term "accumulative energy assets on all pullbacks" strategy to a "trade the energy sector like any other sector" was spot on. Much like the risk on / risk off opportunities we discussed above, the energy sector is presently a perfect vehicle for classic technical analysis.
