Bollinger bands

A technical Analysis technique in which lines are plotted two standard deviations above and below a moving average, and at the moving Average itself. Because Standard deviation measures volatility, these bands will be wider during increased Volatility and narrower during decreased volatility. Some technical analysts consider a Market which approaches the upper band to be Overbought, and a Market which approaches the lower band to be Oversold.
