Buffett Indicator

This is an open-source version of the Buffett indicator. The old version was code-protected and broken, so I created another version.

It's computed simply as the entire SPX 500 capitalization divided by the US GDP. Since TradingView does not have data for the SPX 500 capitalization, I used quarterly values of SPX devisors as a proxy.

I tried to create another version of the Buffett indicator for other countries/indexes, but I can't find the data. If you can help me find data for index divisors, I can add more choices to this indicator.

It's interesting to see how this indicator's behavior has changed in the last few years. Levels that looked crazy are not so crazy anymore.

Please remember that past performance may not be indicative of future results.
Due to various factors, including changing market conditions, the strategy may no longer perform as well as in historical backtesting.
