Indicator: Volatility Quality Index [VQI]

Volatility Quality Index (VQI), by Thomas Stridsman, points out the difference between bad and good volatility in order to identify better trade opportunities in the market.

This plots 3 lines:
- Red line is the VQI (actually, sum of VQI).
- Green line is the 9-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.
- Orange line is the 200-period SMA of sum_of_VQI.

Stridsman suggested to buy when VQI has increased in the previous 10 bars (use the SMAs) and sell when it has decreased in the previous 10 bars. IMO, use this with your other indicators as a confirmation signal.

Type : Indicator, Name : Volatility Quality Index
Variables:
VQI(0),
SumVQI(0);

If TrueRange <> 0 and (High - Low) <> 0 Then
VQI = ((Close - Close) / TrueRange + (Close - Open) / (High - Low)) * 0.5
Else
VQI=VQI;
VQI = AbsValue(VQI) * ((Close - Close + (Close - Open)) * 0.5);
SumVQI = SumVQI + VQI;
Plot1(SumVQI,"");
Plot2(Average(SumVQI,9),"");
Plot3(Average(SumVQI,200),"");

try plugging in this ... I get a much different look

Did you ever experiment with a "volatility quality zero line" Is that indicator similar to this one; if so can it be converted? Thanks
