Average Directional Index (ADX)
Again we discuss the Bollinger Band which is a tool that indicates that the market is crowded or its volatility is high by widening the ribbon and narrowing the ribbon when the market is quiet or less volatile.
So when Bollinger bands narrow, this indicates that market volatility is low and price movements are getting smaller and vice versa when the Bollinger band widens, this shows market volatility is high and price movements are getting higher.
The basic idea of the range-bound strategy is that the currency pair has a low and high price then we trade it with the profit between the two prices.
With us buying at the lowest price, we hope to sell it at the highest price to get profit. And so does selling at the highest price we hope to buy at the lowest price. And one of the tools that we can use to determine the trading range is the channel and Bollinger band indicators above.
You can use the help of other indicators such as RSI, Stochastic, or Oscillator to confirm your decision when trading using this bound market range method.
For examples of their usage, please see the picture of the price movements of the GBP / USD currency pair below.
Well, after learning about the trending market and range-bound market, the thing that must be learned is to be smart to be able to read the market conditions so that we will still be able to make any profit, of course, the condition is by using the right strategy.
