The idea behind the Bollinger Bands Squeeze Metatrader 5 forex indicator is to determine the periods of “no entry” by combining the Keltner and Bollinger bands.
The squeeze occurs when the Bollinger bands are positioned within the Keltner channel.
There are other versions of the BB squeeze indicator, but they’re combined with other indicators that are not connected to either Bollinger bands or Keltner channel.
Howbeit, it is clear that during a “squeeze,” the Bollinger bands squeeze MT5 indicator fills the bands area with gray color.
This implies that currency traders should avoid initiating new buy/sell orders during periods like this.
