Hi

I've recently come across an indicator called SKEW BANDS on advfn-charting. The problem is that i cant find any info on this indicator. Allegedly it has something to do with standard deviation in markets? does anyone know about this indicator and how to use it?
Any help would be much appreciated. CHEERS!

Thanks for your reply Paul. Have you found Skew to be any real use in your own trading?
It seems a little complicated!
