Bollinger Bands are used in Technical Analysis.This tool is proposed by JOHN Bollinger.So,he included his name in the tool that’s called as Bollinger Bands.This involves the method of trading bands.These Bands are useful to determine the higher or lower levels of the price relating to previous trades.
These Bands consist of
- A Band being an N-period moving average.
- Upper band k-times N-period deviation above the middle band.

When the bands come close together for a period of less volatile in the stock prices indicated.If they are far a period of much higher volatile in price is identified.If the Bollinger Bands will show a slope and looks like parallel for more extended time the price level of the stock will be likely to be found to rotate or oscillate down and up among the Bands.
