Bollinger Bands are a volatility indicator, typically used for stock prices.

Bollinger Bands consist of:

an moving average (avg) over a given period T.
an upper band at K times an T-period standard deviation above the moving average (avg + Kσ)
a lower band at K times an T-period standard deviation below the moving average (avg − Kσ)

StreamLab also lets you define inner and outer values for the upper and lower bands.

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bollinger_Bands for more details.
