Original implementation idea of bands by: Traders issue: Stocks & Commodities V. 14:9 (375-379):
Standard Error Bands by Jon Andersen

Introduction and Implementation:

STANDARD ERROR BANDS are quite different than Bollinger’s.  First, they are bands constructed around a linear regression curve.  Second, the bands are based on standard errors with a factor multiplier above and below this regression line.  The error bands measure the STANDARD ERROR OF THE ESTIMATE around the linear regression line. Therefore, as a price series follows the course of the regression line the bands will narrow, showing little error in the estimate. As the market gets noisy and random, the error will be greater resulting in wider bands.

An Additional “alpha-beta (y-y’) algorithm” of Standard Error is implemented as additional -Resistance/Support- on bands. The algorithm was originally made for TradingView’s pine version by user @glaz.

    Thanks a lot Nicolas!
    This is a very helpful indicator to catch “Fastest Moves” if you use it alongside with Bollinger’s for the same RollingBack window period.
    Can’t attach images, but you can as an example of what Im saying, apply both Bollinger alongside with StandardErrorBands to any mayor US Index weekly with a 52 looking back period to see what I mean!   😉
