When the Bollinger Band is very narrow, then the market is at the stage of consolidation and you should be watching out for the breakout trade to occur.

Step 2: Draw a Trend line or a Trend Wall – What a trend line or trend wall does is to show you the range the price is currently moving and allows you to have a gauge of knowing the direction of the breakout.
