BollingerBands

Bollinger bands (BB) is a technical analysis indicator, which is based on the simple moving average and two moving windows of standard deviations in a specific period. This indicator advantage lies in its ability to adapt to the market volatility. If the volatility is low, the indicator bars narrow their range and if the volatility is high, they expand it. To this end, many interesting strategies in the market using Bollinger Bands are based on the price exceedance of the narrow moving standard deviation range.
