In the universe of stock trading, there are two worlds. One world is the world of the hedge fund managers, Wall Street traders, and hyper-investors. In this world, they have access to a whole host of strange-sounding charts and tools that, if you didn’t know any better, could have come from a Star Trek movie.
One such chart is the Bollinger Bandwidth Screener. (Basically this tool tracks Bollinger Bands, which are volatility bands placed above and below a moving average.)
Then there’s another world. It’s the world of the average investor. On a good day, such an investor is somewhat a priority for their financial analyst. More often than not, however, the big banks spend their most time on – you guessed it, their big clients. So investors like you and me rarely see sophisticated analysis and charts like the Bollinger Bandwidth Screener.
This leaves you with a choice. You can surrender these tools, charts, graphs – and all the dividends that come with it – to the dwellers of the first world. Or you can educate yourself and seize these instruments for your own trading. The choice is yours.
