A SHORT SKIRT is a quick scalp trade made in the direction of the short-term trend.
The setup occurs after the S& P has made a sharp "impulse" move. The pattern tends to look like a continuation flag on a 6-minute chart. We call it a "Short Skirt" because the trade usually lasts between 7 - 65 minutes. The concept is - "quick in and quick out without getting caught."

​ Bollinger Bands® employ upper and lower standard deviation bands together with a center simple moving average band around price to identify high and low volatility points. While it can be a real challenge to forecast future prices and price cycles, volatility changes and cycles are relatively easy to identify. This is because equities alternate between periods of low volatility, followed by periods of high volatility, and so on - much like the calm before the storm and the inevitable inactivity afterward.

we use standard deviation bands centered around a 75 period moving average to make trades on the day following a trend day. we do these trades in the morning session only. the concept behind this is that a push to the upper or lower band will setup a countertrend trade. the objective is a push back to the moving average. no stops were used in our testing, we just used an exit of whenever the trade hit the moving average or end of day in the worse possible scenario.

This color rule is based off an average true range function added or subtracted from the previous swing high or low.

The Bollinger Band Squeeze occurs when volatility falls to low levels and the Bollinger Bands narrow. According to John Bollinger, periods of low volatility are often followed by periods of high volatility. Therefore, a volatility contraction or narrowing of the bands can foreshadow a significant advance or decline. Once the squeeze play is on, a subsequent band break signal sthe start of a new move. A new advance starts with a squeeze and subsequent break above the upper band. A new decline starts with a squeeze and subsequent break below the lower band.
