The Expander trading strategy

In his trading strategy Wieland Arlt combines the Bollinger bands with a selection of candlestick patterns. When the candlestick patterns occur outside the Bollinger bands, the trader may consider opening a position.

An open position is protected by a stop loss and a profit target. The stop loss is not static. It is based on the high-low of the previous periods. Uniquely the target is not static either. The target follows the Bollinger bands in an attempt to capture the most profit from an open position. This is called a trailing target.
