Why We Use Acceleration Bands

Acceleration – find trends that are starting

to speed up for faster profits
We started trading with moving averages
We quickly noticed that the best stocks
never re-test major moving averages
We liked the concept of adaptive bands
that could adjust based on more recent
price action
Acceleration Bands should encompass
95% of price action

Why We Use Acceleration Bands


If Acceleration Bands encompass 95%

of the price action, we like to catch the
other 5% move.
This allows us to trade the statistically
rare events for big profits.
Famed Money Manager George Soros
stated that these unexpected moves,
or “fat tails”, was where he made the
most money.

Trading the Bubbles

Bubbles A “Bubble” in a stock is often viewed as a negative.


The Beginning The Acceleration Bands allow you to spot when the trend is
emerging before it becomes obvious to everyone else.

The Insight This indicator also tells you when the “Bubble” is bursting.
Often happens before the true collapse.

KEY POINT Stocks that “Bubble Up”, eventually burst and break down, quickly.
You can trade both sides of this move.

Acceleration Bands: Rules
Bullish entries and exits

Bullish Entry

Look for Two (2) closes in a row above the upper 20-bar Acceleration Band.
For strongest trends, second close is higher than the high of the first bar.

Bullish Exit

A close below the 10-bar Exponential Moving Average (EMA).

This tends to be better than a close under the upper acceleration band.
