BoDi Volatility Signals Metatrader 5 Forex Indicator

    The BoDi Metatrader 5 custom Forex indicator is used to compute the difference between the upper and lower Bollinger Bands.

    It is well documented that during upward or downward impulse movement of the price, the bands are expected to widen (the difference between them increases), and when the movement diminishes the bands constricts (the difference decreases).

    It isn’t really convenient to deploy these rules in gauging the start of the movement, since it only becomes clear at the end.

    When the Bollinger Bands narrows, it only corresponds with the moment of calm in the clash between bulls and bears, and this last moment can be used for scanning the end point of the movement.

    The BoDi Metatrader 5 Forex indicator gets shown in a separate window as histograms on the activity chart.
