They arose from the need for adaptive trading bands and the observation that volatility was dynamic, not static as was widely believed at the time.

Bollinger Bands can be used in most time frames, from very short-term periods, to hourly, daily, weekly or monthly.

Interesting Facts about Famous Traders
Who is the most successful trader in history?
The answer to this question is not as simple as it seems. When success is defined in monetary terms, the trader who made the most profit within a short time is George Soros, whose hedge fund sold 10 billion GBP in 1992 in a historic moment in the currency trading markets.
When success is defined by boldness during market downturns, Jesse Livermore stands out for shorting the 1929 Wall Street Crash, making 100 million USD in the process.
Or if you prefer to define success in terms of speculation on commodities, Richard Dennis traded his way to 200 million USD as well as creating the Turtle Trading experiment.
When you add the monetary, boldness and speculation yardsticks together, John Paulson might be your choice of the most successful trader in history. His hedge fund shorted the US subprime mortgage market just as it was teetering on the verge of collapse in 2007.
