the more I trade, the more I hate all those "fundamental" market long-term investors

use statistics with options and get an edge

use statistics with futures arbitrage and get an edge

use short-term intra-day automated systems and dump your emotions on someone/something else

use stop-losses no matter what you do or use statistics so you don't hold to losers


people whine about the market, "psychology" and behavior....while there are more profitable opportunities there than humans on our planet.

Not sure if I understood the concept right, but you are saying that etf QQQ gets overvalued in comparison to NDX?

If so, they are definitely arbitraging that w/ HFT

120 break is more likely than 107.5 with current conditions/seasonality

Up ~10% on XIV. Currently designing intra-day system for it and others.

Looking at today's breakout, when 3 out of 4 major indexes were setting up near their previous highs

it seems reasonable to have a tool that calculates the position of price in comparison to the highs for X day period

I like using long period CCI as a histogram to spot possible support/resistance/trend breaks...

For those, who find a relationship of VIX/SPX interesting.

The crossover of the ratio with MA sometimes could be very this is an alternative... a histogram difference of the ratio with its MA....

Could also be used as an alternative to BB's - find extreme points by the extreme difference with MA....could also be used for any other two symbols...

declare lower;

input price = FundamentalType.CLOSE;
input SPY = "SPX";
input VXX = "VIX";
input length = 9;
input displace = 0;
input crossingType = {default above, below};

def price1 = Fundamental(price, SPY);
def price2 = Fundamental(price, VXX);

plot Relation = if price2 == 0 then Double.NaN else price2 / price1;

plot Avg = Average(Relation[-displace], length);

plot Diff = Relation - Avg;

Diff.DefineColor("Positive and Up", Color.GREEN);
Diff.DefineColor("Positive and Down", Color.DARK_GREEN);
Diff.DefineColor("Negative and Down", Color.RED);
Diff.DefineColor("Negative and Up", Color.DARK_RED);
Diff.AssignValueColor(if Diff <= 0 then if Diff < Diff[1] then Diff.Color("Positive and Up") else Diff.Color("Positive and Down") else if Diff > Diff[1] then Diff.Color("Negative and Down") else Diff.Color("Negative and Up"));

just use ToS "PriceAverageCrossover". It will paint an arrow for each cross of price with any type of average.

do you want to paint the bars according to the position of price in comparison to EMA(13)? Didn't quite get it.

If anyone has interesting ideas to incorporate, I'm always glad to help....although I'm no ToS scripter of course ;)

these indicators plot two things:

1) the indicator of the instrument you have on the chart (let's say XIV for example).

2) the indicator of the instrument you plug in as "symbol".

So it should do the work.


Found a quite interesting relationship between XIV and the index of volatility for volatility "VVIX".
