TTM Squeeze

John Carter

By now you've heard Henry and John saying things like "this is in a squeeze" or "the squeeze has fired" or "the squeeze is losing momentum" and you're thinking what the heck are they talking about?

Well the TTM Squeeze is one of the tools we can't trade without. It's apart of every single one of our trading plans.

The TTM Squeeze is actually made up of 3 indicators. The Bollinger Bands, the Keltner Channels, and an oscillator. If you're not familiar with these indicators. It's okay! There's time for that.

What we really want you to get is this...

All markets move between quiet periods and volatile periods. You want to be positioned during the quiet times to take advantage of volatility or simple put - movement in price. You don't make money without price movement.

If you're a more advanced options trader you will understand why it's especially important for options traders to be positioned before the price movement. If you don't understand this don't worry about it now by the end of our time together you will.

That is what the TTM Squeeze represents. When the Bollinger Bands cross inside the Keltner Channels this indicates a quiet period in the market AKA "it's in a squeeze" and when the "squeeze fires" this means the Bollinger Bands have crossed outside of the Keltner Channels and price is moving.

The oscillator is a momentum indicator identifing which direction the squeeze has fired. If a squeeze "loses momentum" that means the move is over.

The TTM Squeeze can be found in all major platforms. If you'd like more information on how to use this I've recorded a video showing you exactly how I use this indicator every day.

Again, the indicators that embody the TTM Squeeze is available for free on all trading platforms, BUT if you don't want to go cross eyed looking at all the squiggle lines and want an easy to use visual representation then contact support on how to get the TTM Squeeze for your trading platform.
