Bollinger Band Moves (by Springheel Jack)

By -

SPX closed back above the daily middle bollinger band yesterday and that was unexpected and rare. Generally speaking on a cross significantly above or below the middle bollinger band on the SPX daily chart, there is then a move to the next primary support or resistance level, which is either the next bollinger band, or a major moving average (the 50, 100 or 200 DMA) lying between the middle and far bollinger band in the direction of the break. I can see about twenty instances of that happening in the last year, and a further ten or so when the middle bollinger band was good support or resistance for continuation.
