Volatility

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).

Put this together simply to visualise S&P realised vol against gold vol, it seems gold tends to realise slightly more, at least in the present regime.

Changes to Default BBands for bitcoin

BBands on traditional markets are default set at 20 and per John Bollinger, he found this to be the best setting. This gives the bands a 20 day SMA, thus capturing a month of trading. 9 to 5 trading, 5 days a week, 20 days/month However, Bitcoin may require a change of this setting to 30 because it is traded 24/7. 24/7 trading, 30 days/month.

Buying pressure on the 15 minute after gapping up. Bulls are testing support and definitely could pop the resistance! Short term here for some quick gains. Moving averages all angled up and sellers aren't bringing it down. Very volatile... easy scalp here

This chart looks at rising levels of volatility in ETHUSD Rising volatility (blue line) relative to the March peak suggests Ethereum could have more room to fall against the dollar.

Price also tested the weekly Pivot Point above at 48.13 but was not able to break above that mark. As long as crude trades below that Pivot Point, it indicateds that price wants to keep moving lower.

Selling CMG because of range

This is a great example of a chart that I would choose to sell an option rather than buy an option. Looking at the historical pattern of this stock, it is sitting in a nice range, so I will look for premium above 490 to sell. Stocks with higher implied volatility paired with weekly options make a great pair to sell options! Read why at www.shecantrade.com

Crude oil closed down $1 today. During the day, my first price target @ 48.36 was hit (I mentioned that in last night's post). Crude did hit a low of 47.73 but was unable to stay below the 48 price level, and in a something of show of strength, rebounded almost a dollar off the day's lows. The closing price of 47.73 was just 2 cents shy of the 21 day moving ...
