Spread bias adjusted Volatility
The BVOL24H variable is:
Stdev(Ln(P1/P0), Ln(P2/P1)... where Ln is the natural log (base e) of (price @ minute 2) divided by (price @ minute 1).
When volatility is high (returns have a higher variance):
(a) the function (blue) will be higher in areas where the market is net long, (indicated by the long-short spread). This could possibly be used to indicate bottom reversal points, as bottoms tend to have high volatility and a shifting of the market to become net long.
(b) the function will be lower when the market is net short and when volatility slows.
This is just another picture of the market and in no way is intended to be an indicator or trading advice.
For whatever reason, BVOL24H/(BTCUSDLONGS/BTCUSDSHORTS) is very high just now. Volatility is back and I suspect a short squeeze may occur pushing past the recent highs. This is just speculation and still trying to figure out if anything can be interpreted from this.
