Bermaui Bands

Bermaui Bands (BB) is a technical analysis tool that helps filter between ranging and trending price movements. The idea behind this indicator can be explained in the next steps:

  1. Calculate Standard Deviation as an oscillator that moves between 0 and 100. I will name it Bermaui Deviation percent (BD %).
  2. If "BD %" is near zero then volatility is at its extreme. In addition, if "BD %" is near 100 then volatility is very low.
  3. High volatility means a great probability for a trending market, while low volatility means side-way or ranging market.
  4. Middle Line is a Simple Moving Average (SMA) because Standard Deviation is calculated depending on SMA.
  5. Add "BD %" to a simple moving average with the same number of bars in the calculation to get The Upper Bermaui Band.
  6. Subtract "BD %" from a simple moving average with the same number of bars in the calculation to get The Lower Bermaui Bands.

Important Information

    How to use it

    • Use Bermaui Bands as a filter to help you identify trend direction.
    • If BB lines separate from each other then there is a great probability that price candles will move in a side-way or a ranging movement.
    • When BB lines separate from each other and price candles move in between them then trade with a ranging market strategy.
    • If BB lines combine like a single line then there is a great probability that price will move in a trending movement.
    • When BB lines combine like a single line and price candles move away from them then trade with a trending market strategy.


      • Buy & Sell alert signals when price candles penetrate BB lines.
      • Suggested Stop loss that depends on a percent from Standard Deviation.
      • Well-designed style that user can control.
      • Sound, email alerts depending on the user choice.

        You want an indicator that helps with breakouts, well this is it. I use it this in my Algo to help and has made my win rate shoot up to the sky. Use this with his TDO and other indicators and there would be no reason you should not come out ahead in this business at the end of the year. Do not wait around in deciding to get this, you will only be delaying in your abilities to get money out the market.

        Just purchased and installed it. Wow!! Mr Muhammad Bermaui work is phenomenal. Are you mathematician? Professor? Engineer? Cant believe it. I am able to visually see how the band isolated the whipsaw market.. You beat the bollinger band!!!!!!

        Muy buen indicador el Bermaui Bands, ayer lo adquiri y hoy me dio la primera señal en gráfica de una hora, y antes de comenzar el gran desplazamiento de eurusd y usdjpy, que fue formidable, ya cerré las operaciones que fueron muy exitosas pues para que mas después de ese movimiento tan grande, ademas esta el fin de semana por delante, a decir verdad, es un indicador que no repinta y te da el aviso antes que termine la barra (vela) , por eso le doy un cinco estrella, ya veré en futuras operaciones como se comporta . Muchas Gracias

        I really like it for 1H and 4H charts along with TDO on the other hands you can get very nice results. Thanks brother

        I have bought two indicators BD% and Bermaui bands. I am compelled to give developer only 1 star as the developer is not replying to any of my messages. I am new to his indicators and has some queries but he never replies. I will change the star rating once the developer changes his attitude towards his customers.

        Add it: Developer did not contact because of his mql5 account. He has contacted and replied to my queries. I am happy with his indicators. The indicators look very useful I hope to be able to make profitable trades.

        Very good results. Thank you :-)

        I use the indicator with the expert in the multi chart and it is extremely strong and accurate. Few Signals but accurate. I run it on 16 charts and get enough signals every day and everything is great.

        Mr Bermaui, you are a magician. Thank you very much

        The author replied me and answered my questions so I can use this indicator for automated trading.

        I also like that the indicator provides email alerts (on blue dots/red dots) which are very helpful too.

        I may have updates later for its performance after I use it for a longer time.

        exeedorbit 2018.10.12 14:37 


        It's okay at predicting breakouts. But too many false signals. No alert on buy/sell signal.

        Not very useful without a scanner and alerts.

        This is a good breakout indicator. I love the fact that it shows me when the volatility is adding up and helps me trade news faster! Much love from Kenya Muhammad Elbermaui! Am a fan of Mo Salah and Egypt by the way!
