Same can be said for the reverse if the Stochastic is below 20 and the chart is nearing the bottom Bollinger Band.

Taking a look at this charting tool, it allows the trader to see when a stock is in the upper part of its trading range or the lower.

Many traders and investors use the Bollinger Band to determine if a stock or other trading product is becoming over bought and over sold. Using standard deviation, we can assume that there is an above 90% chance that a given data point stays within two standard deviations.
