Product Review: Edge by Dennis D Peterson
Edge, part of the Bollinger on Bollinger product available at www.BollingerBands.com, was created by technician John Bollinger to provide unique analytical data for predicting the next day’s move. There are four categories of data: day of the week, end of the month, sequences, and holidays. Because Edge uses historical data, you can specify the date range to calculate the statistics, and of course, you can choose the tradable to be analyzed.
As traders, most of us know that the market behaves differently depending on the time of year. Triple witching occurs four times a year (third Friday of March, June, September, and December) when contracts for stock options, stock index options, and stock index futures expire. Those Fridays are volatile — or has program trading changed that dynamic? Holidays, too, are unpredictable, but is it the same for all equities? What’s going on with the end of the month? For that matter, what about the day of the week? Do Mondays behave differently than Fridays?
