US 2 year and US 10 year comparison, inverted yield curve with VIX. I use this on a weekly chart with 2 moving averages, the 40 week (ma200 daily) and the 520 week (10 year median).
The bottom histogram is the VIX and the plot is the yield curve. When the VIX is above a certain level (you can set it in settings) and the ýield curve is close to or at inversion the...
I am going to start taking requests to open source my indicators and they will also be updated to Version 4 of Pinescript.
I added some features to the original code such the ability to smooth the oscillator and select the look back periods for the historical volatility.

This script offers an SMI index of VIX, SPY, and NDX. Rather than overlaying VIX, NDX and SPY on the same chart.
It's much easier to see the correlation between VIX's price and NDX / SPY price in this manner.
Thanks to Buckkets & William Blau for the TSI smoothing method.
After reading Cam Hui's blog post about his "Trifecta" bottom spotting model I thought I'd try my hand at scripting it as an indicator. The results are pretty close to what he describes. Though the data TradingView feeds me doesn't seem to be identical to what he's using on StockCharts.com the results are close enough that I will call the effort a success worth publishing.
This looks at he VIX and trades SVXY. Load SVXY and run the script on SVXY.
Entry - You set this number to how high you want the VIX to go before SVXY will be bought. Keep in mind it buys the bar after a trigger, results may be confusing
Exit - You set this number to how low you want the VIX to go before SVXY will be sold.
Year - This as stated, It...
A useful measure of recent volatility. I use 50 day or 50 week periods, but you can experiment with other values too. Because it measures ranges as a % of current close it can be used to make good comparisons with other historic periods of low (or high) volatility. This measure reached a new 23 year low for daily S&P 500 in July 2017.
Uses and historic examples:...
BARS SINCE VIX17 Median by dime (v1.0 release) 04/02/2017
(Inspired by "Bars Since the last RSI Extreme" from DRodriguezFX)
This indicator is useful in tracking how many daily bars since the VIX was last at a historically 'normal' range.
Currently the VIX has been in a period of low volatility for a period of 98 daily bars since the VIX was last at the 17...
This simple script was a collaborative effort with 4X4good.
It plots a moving median for the period using the 50th percentile value.
We wanted to know the median value of VIX but surprisingly, a median indicator wasn't yet available in the indicators library.
So we did a little research & put this together.
Variation on idea at url below using SPYIX from BATS instead of VIX
Aids in identifying changes in volatility direction.
EDIT: just noticed that URL is now password protected. The concept from the author is simple: use EMA and SMA smoothing of the VIX as two signal lines. When they...
