And also set Slope Period. Default is 5, which means it will measure the COG values for past 5 bars and find the Slope based on time for past 5 bars.

Also get COG Slope in Buffer values for specified COG bars back.
What slope means:
This slope indicates whether price is trending up or down
These can be used to calculate volatility. Whether bands are closing or opening up.
In Bollinger bands, if bands are opening up, means trend is picking up and volatility is increasing. So it’s good to trade.
