// The author of this indicator is Veronique Valcu. The z-score (z) for a data 
// item x measures the distance (in standard deviations StdDev) and direction 
// of the item from its mean (U):
//     z = (x-StdDev) / U
// A value of zero indicates that the data item x is equal to the mean U, while 
// positive or negative values show that the data item is above (x>U) or below 
// (x Values of +2 and -2 show that the data item is two standard deviations 
// above or below the chosen mean, respectively, and over 95.5% of all data 
// items are contained within these two horizontal references (see Figure 1).
// We substitute x with the closing price C, the mean U with simple moving 
// average (SMA) of n periods (n), and StdDev with the standard deviation of 
// closing prices for n periods, the above formula becomes:
//     Z_score = (C - SMA(n)) / StdDev(C,n)
// The z-score indicator is not new, but its use can be seen as a supplement to 
// Bollinger bands. It offers a simple way to assess the position of the price 
// vis-a-vis its resistance and support levels expressed by the Bollinger Bands. 
// In addition, crossings of z-score averages may signal the start or the end of 
// a tradable trend. Traders may take a step further and look for stronger signals 
// by identifying common crossing points of z-score, its average, and average of average.

I've used Zscore quite well for years now. Thanks for adding the deviations.
