Bollinger Charts Detect Potential Volatility in your Data Set

Bollinger Bands/Bollinger Charts input volatility bands above and below a Moving Average. The volatility is based on the Standard Devation that changes as volatility goes up and down. When volatility rises, the bands widen, while bands become smaller when volatility lowers.

NOTE: Bollinger only uses 2 Standard Devations, instead of 3 Standard Devations, when calculating the upper and lower limits.
