Bollinger Bands %B

Bollinger Bands %B or Percentage Bandwidth is an alternative implementation of the Bollinger Bands indicator. As with Bollinger Bands, this is a volatility indicator where the middle band is typically a 20 data point Simple Moving Average and the upper and lower bands generally have a deviation of 2. This indicator is unique and will provide different trade signals than Bollinger Bands. Buy signals are generated when the value of the %B is greater than 1, while sell signals are generated when the value of %B is less than 0.
Tip: Use during sideways markets or to confirm trends with reversed signals.
