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.

What kind of volatility is it? The implied volatilty ? What is the difference between this chart and your indicator forecast and BB?

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

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
