Watched Bollinger Bands in stock charts for years without knowing what to do with them, or how to utilize them in trading, until I was inspired by Stock Market Mentor Dan Fitzpatrick's comments on "squeezes", a term I had never appreciated, to find the book that originated the term. .

This book is no different. Bollinger will show you all the charts in which his system works perfectly and none that don't.

Great book for understanding Bollinger bands (written by the creator of that indicator). If you want to understand how to interpret Bollinger bands, this is the book you need.
