Intraday VIX estimation using yesterdays VIX, previous overnight roll , and intraday values for the VXX etf (scaled up to VIX)
Works in all intraday time frames.
First attempt...feedback welcome.
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...
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 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

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.
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...
Rate of Change - Weekly Signals
This indicator gives a potential "buy signal" using Rate of Change of SPX and VIX together,
using the following criteria:
SPX Weekly ROC(10) has been BELOW -9 and now rises ABOVE -5
VIX Weekly ROC(10) has been ABOVE +80 and now falls BELOW +10
The background will turn RED when ROC(SPX) is below -9 and ROC(VIX) is above...
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...
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...
