Any FX trader probably has used a Bollinger Band at some point in his trading career. The MT4 indicator that we introduce in this article makes it easier to use such a Bollinger band.
This "Custom_Bands" allows you to change the values used for calculating Bollinger Bands more freely.
Bollinger bands are calculated based on moving averages. In the normal Bollinger band, even if you can specify the calculation period of the moving average line, you cannot specify the moving average line calculation method (exponential smoothing moving average, smooth moving average, etc.) or the price used for the calculation (open price, closing price, etc.).
However, this "Custom_Bands" can also freely specify the moving average line calculation method and the price used for the calculation. This allows you to use a Bollinger band that suits you more.
In the example below, the normal Bollinger band and this indicator are compared. In this way, you can see that the rendering method changes considerably between this indicator and a normal Bollinger band.
How to use:
Try using it as a normal Bollinger band. For example, if the price touches the Bollinger Band, you could set up a contrarian trade. It can also be used to determine trends, determine profits, and cut losses.
In particular, this indicator allows you to set various values with parameters. So it's a good idea to experiment and find the best combination for your strategy.
