Bollinger Squeeze Buy/Sell Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Bollinger Squeeze Buy/Sell Metatrader 4 indicator is a Bollinger Bands type indicator that mimics an oscillator.

The indicator gauges decline in volatility, as well as its increase.

The start of a new trend is usually heralded by the Bollinger Squeeze.

In this case, the squeeze is represented by the fading histograms on the area around the zero-horizontal level.

Although, we have the indicator default setting tot 20 periods (bolPrd) and two standard deviation (bolDev), it can be tweaked to reflect one’s trading preferences.

Key Takeaways

  • Just to get a clearer picture of how the market is fairing, pay more attention to the changing color of the Bollinger Squeeze Basic MT4 indicator histograms.
