BollingerOnBollinger Bands.com (BBands.com) has introduced Bollinger Band Expert, an artificial intelligence (AI) system centered on Bollinger Bands and the Bollinger Band indicators.

The expert seeks to help answer questions related to trend, Bollinger Band squeeze formations, accumulation or distribution phases, the 200-day moving average, 52-week new highs or lows, M&W patterns, and more.
Many features of the BB Expert are available to all users, with some features only available to paid subscribers ($25/month with a 30-day free trial).
This year is the 30th anniversary of John Bollinger’s creation of the well-known Bollinger Bands.
