The Moving Average Band Width indicator is based on the Moving Average Bands study, both designed by Vitali Apirine. Instead of examining the interaction of the lines (which is the case in the original indicator), Moving Average Band Width suggests measuring the distance between the upper and the lower band.

Low readings of the indicator signify narrowing of the bands, which, in turn, can signify change in the current trend. You can compare the current indicator readings with the running display of the lowest reading for the indicator period, which is displayed as the second plot on the same subgraph.
