Volatility-based indicators are valuable technical analysis tools that look at changes in market prices over a specified period of time. The faster prices change, the higher the volatility. The slower prices change, the lower the volatility. It can be measured and calculated based on historical prices and can be used for trend identification. It also typically signals if a market is overbought or oversold (meaning price is unjustifiably high or unjustifiably low), which can point to a stalling or reversal of the trend.

Identifying the points where price potentially stops and reverses is very helpful to any trader. They are commonly used in combination with other signal-generating conditions. There are several volatility-based indicators all using volatility in a clever way to help identify trading opportunities. Examples of such indicators are Average True Range (ATR), the widely popular and easy to use Bollinger Bands (BB), Donchian Channels and Keltner Channels (KC).

Yield Curve Below 1%, Racing to the Bottom

The yield curve (spread between the 30 year and 2 year spread) just broke below 1%. All indicators suggest this trend to continue. It has been encroaching the lower Bollinger Band of the Kovach Reversals Indicator, with no retracement in sight. A retracement will be confirmed by a green triangle, if an when it happens. The Federal reserve should be very ...

IOTA LONG, RSI + Cycle Repeat

IOTA been on a nice bull run these past few days, looking to break $1 and perhaps stabilize around $1.20+ in the upcoming weeks. Analyzing chart and RSI's we see a similar pattern happened on November 10 (highlighted) during which after a nice bull run we had a minor correction and then kept rising the next day. It seems like IOTA should have a bit of a ...

Relationship of the $VIX and S&P 500 $spx Analysis $spy #TA

Relationship of the VIX and S&P 500. Key areas to watch on are 44-37 range on the VIX and on the RSI 51. We will not see a sustained rally on the S&P500 until the Vix RSI fails through 51 while the Vix capped under 37 level. The market will need some time to work off the volatility surge if this Asian contagion is actually over. However the market should not ...

Very Lackluster Day for Stocks

The momentum and volatility in stocks has subsided for the moment due to geopolitical risks, in particular political uncertainty in the US. This would be a good range trading day, if that's your thing. The Kovach Momentum indicators have basically flatlined and the Reversals indicator has pointed out some nice entry points (shown with green triangles) for mean ...

btc will breach today's high again

after today's high, there were two bollinger compresssions, 45 and 30 minute, where prices languished. AFter that, one dramatic rise again. Then, after the rise, we are seeing another stagnant bollinger compression. Given the volume during this lull in price, we could get another jump after it. People are immensely afraid of missing the 8k top?

BCH is a good trade

Looking at BCH this week. Great volatility, people are buying it low and bidding it up really nicely. With a 35% swing this week, it is getting bought. A great place to trade this week, if I could just get my BTC to transfer... Also holding my BTC, it is behaving. Thinking that on off days with BTC, will look at working the BCH trade...

GU to Break Daily Flag

Volatility extends range outside the Daily/Weekly Flag for the first time on the 4HR, with range gaining momentum below the SMMA's thanks to trend-line pressure & having performed a 61.8% retracement of the previous high on the 1HR I would expect this to now drop to the outer Band at 130.0 where psychological support would help retest before selling for good.

Try #1 to catch the top: given the lack of momentum here it's a quite nice r/r even if target is not being reached. Daily Timeframe still pretty strong, but in danger zone given mean reversion strategies.
