The idea of an oscillator is quite simple. It is based on the popular VIX Fix oscillator, the purpose of which is to find local bottoms within the scope of trend movement. But in addition to the classic VIX fix, I built an oscillator opposite to it, which serves as a potential signal of the end of local...
This script aims to identify optimal times when to write Puts for premium, for example using the SPX Weeklies model or simply buying Calls. Not perfect but provides some additional confidence when playing Puts on SPX or the Wheel on SPY.
What it does:
We compare current VIX with a lookback VIX for X% delta. If there is a jump of say 20% over a defined period then...
The script is my implementation of "Forecasting a Volatility Tsunami" by Andrew Thrasher (Thrasher Analytics). You can find the paper here: www.researchgate.net
I've changed a bit the approach - instead of two volatility indices (VIX & VVIX), I used two more: VXN and VXD. Additionally, I average the...
The script is intended to indicate when the correlation between VIX and VVIX gets below 0, on the selecteted security chart. It makes sense to plot it on indicies. This aims to present how the chart of a security looked like when the divergance between VIX and VVIX happened.
This indicator provides a 3 day smoothed histogram expressing whether the near term VIX futures curve is in a state of contango or backwardation. The solid red/green bars express the spot vs front-month vs next month curve with the value being the cumulative point spread between them. The shaded overlay bars express the spread between the VIX spot index and...
Many know of the VIX for equity trading. Yet, many are unaware that there is the same kind of volatility measure for trading bonds, called the MOVE Index.
"The Merrill Lynch Option Volatility Estimate (MOVE) Index is a yield curve weighted index of the normalized implied volatility on 1-month Treasury options which are weighted on the 2, 5, 10, and 30 year...
This script uses the close of the VIX on a daily resolution to provide the 'implied move' for the E-mini SP500 futures. While it can be applied to any equity index, it's crucial to know that the VIX is calculated using SPX options, and may not reflect the implied volatility of other indices. The user can adjust the length of the moving average used to calculate...
This script calculates spikes Vix tops and bottoms. The Vix Market Bottom is calculated using CM_Williams_Vix_Fix Finds Market Bottoms (Chris Moody). The Vix Market Top is calculated as the inverse of CM Williams’ formula.
The highest Vix Bottom and the highest Vix Top are averaged (over the Highest Vix Lookback period).
Buys are signaled when the Vix Bottom...
"All stocks in the market have unique personalities in terms of implied volatility (their option prices). For example, one stock might have an implied volatility of 30%, while another has an implied volatility of 50%. Even more, the 30% IV stock might usually trade with 20% IV, in which case 30% is high. On the other hand, the 50% IV stock might usually trade with...
This script plots the correlation for two symbols as an oscillator:
A correlation of 1 means that both values move in the same direction together.
A correlation of -1 means that both values are perfectly negative correlated.
Length of the Correlation
The two symbols you want to calculate the correlation for
Barcolor: Defines whether Bar-coloring is set...
This script allows users to visualize the state of the VIX Futures Term Structure. The user is able to select from five CBOE VIX Indices; VIX, VIX9D, VIX3M, VIX6M, and VIX1Y and the script will color the candles based on the price relationship between selected indices. Visit the CBOE website for more info on how the various VIX indices are calculated.
This script aims to determine correlations with major indexes for potential relationships to contrarian indicators. The main goal is to research if peaks and troughs in indexes actually correlate closely to the US dollar or 10YR US rates.
Sweet little momentum gadget to track the VIX Index.
What is the VIX?
The CBOE S&P 500 Volatility Index (VIX) is known as the 'Fear Index' which can measure how worried traders are that the S&P 500 might suddenly drop within the next 30 days.
When the VIX starts moving higher, it is telling you that traders are getting nervous. When the VIX starts moving lower,...
Indicator tracks the 10 day correlation with VIX. I prefer to use this with SPY. Can be a great way to flag tops/melt-ups.
Default settings are set to when the correlation is above 0.2, bars turn red, but you can change this.
1) The script takes current INDIA VIX as input Daily time frame for NIFTY
2) Used a Formula VIX Value / Square root of Time Period
3) Change Timeframe input accordingly 1 Year = 1, Monthly = 12, Weekly = 52, Daily = 365
4) based point 2 formula with 1 standard deviation it creates upper & lower range bands
5) This is generally used for option selling by big...
This script simply calculates and plots the VIX 3 month versus 1 month ratio. Values below 1 indicate a strong panic situation in the market (1 month volatility is higher than the 3 month volatiliy). This might be a good opportunity to sell options.
