Bollinger on Bollinger Bands

"The purpose of this book is to help you avoid many of the common traps investors get caught in, including the buy-low, sell-high trap, where the investor buys only to watch the stock continue downward or sells only to watch the stock continue upward." -From the Introduction

In the 1970s, market newcomer John Bollinger couldn't find a system of investment analysis to fit his belief that all market events exist only in relation to one another and that there are no absolutes. So he created his own.

That approach-Rational Analysis-led to the establishment of Bollinger Bands and ensured Bollinger's spot in investment analysis history. Now, in Bollinger on Bollinger Bands, John Bollinger explains the market conditions that led to his initial discovery, and gives readers the inside story of the development and refinement of Bollinger Bands. He then goes on to present a relative decision framework built around Rational Analysis and Bollinger Bands-an extraordinarily powerful combination of technical and fundamental analysis that answers the question of whether prices are too high or too low for virtually any security or market environment.

By understanding how to incorporate Bollinger's techniques into their own investment strategy, investors will greatly increase their ability to ignore often-costly emotions and arrive at rational decisions supported by both the facts and the underlying market environment. Bollinger on Bollinger Bands provides:

- The first authoritative examination of this revolutionary technical analysis tool

- Three simple systems for implementing Bollinger Bands

- Innovative methods for clarifying patterns and analyzing time frames and moving averages

The key to effective investment analysis is to as much as possible-eliminate emotion and approach each trade on its technical and fundamental merits alone. Since their introduction, few analytical techniques have helped investors do this better or more consistently than Bollinger Bands. Bollinger on Bollinger Bands provides tips, guidelines, and rules for incorporating the bands into virtually any investment strategy. It is a watershed book, written by the only man truly qualified to claim a comprehensive knowledge of the topic-John Bollinger himself.
