ATR is being used here instead of % because ATR keeps it relative to current (1ATR move in either direction can have very different % for when price at 20cent and 2 dollars).
Upper/Lower band is calculated based on the average of previous peak/trough. Price approaching the band could signal overextended in the short term movement, expect price to consolidate/retrace to the MA.
Caution: if the indicator shows the price "pulled back" to MA, the actual price could still go up (or down), just a little slower then the MA
