I receive plenty of questions from BigTrends students about the difference between Bollinger Bands and Acceleration Bands. There was a time when I would only say “use Bollinger Bands on trading range markets and use Acceleration Bands on trending markets.” The fact that Bollinger Bands race to catch up more quickly when a stock breaks outside the bands led to my creation of Acceleration Bands, as I wanted a band that could act as a trailing stop for a big trend on the upside or the downside.

August will be the third month of losses for the stock market out of the last four when the books close next Tuesday and we move into September. The major US indices have lost more than 5% across the board with the Dow down just 4.25% and the Russell 2K down 10%. The bearish price action looks like it will continue for the majority of September.
