Bollinger bands are actually indicators as to the volatility of a particular security. As a result, for trading purposes, one would want to look at the activity of trading within the bands in conjunction with another tool, such as the Relative Strength Indicator, to properly undertake investment decisions.

Historically, when a price movement has been identified originating at one of the Bollinger limits, it will more likely than not continue at least to the opposite limit band.

Bollinger bands are in essence a graphic representation of the volatility that exists in the market for any particular stock. As such, they allow the investor the possibility to identify periods where opportunities for the undertaking of successful positions can arise.

When used in conjunction with other indicators, the knowledge and use of Bollinger bands can greatly improve any individuals trading performance.
Bollinger Bands and Trading

Bollinger bands is without a doubt one of the greatest tools ever created to aid the astute trader with his entries and exits.

The reaction of an upper or lower band to approaching price provides the active trader with a tale tale sign of what will likely take place over the next few bars or more.

This reaction provides valuable insight into whether or not this will be just a few bars or quite a few bars.

Likewise the upper bands "personality" during this time is also very telling.

Trading with BB is rather simple.If if hits the top band then SHORT it.

EMA crossover method has been used extensively for Long Term
view.But it can be used in conjunction with Bollinger Bands for
day trading also.

The positions of Candles with respect to Central line is crucial.
If the candles are below the central line near the bottom band
SHORT it.For LONG entry the conditions are just reverse.
