src = close
ibs = (close - low) / (high - low) * 100

longCondition = ibs < 17
if (longCondition)
    strategy.entry("My Long Entry Id", strategy.long)

shortCondition = close > high[1]
if (shortCondition)
    strategy.entry("My Short Entry Id", strategy.short)
As said by Llewelyn at systemtradersuccess.com, 2002 and 2008 are 2 of the 3 best performing years. Bull market bias must be reconsidered. Works great with VIX (daily) and some currencies pairs (hourly)
IMO there is a bias in this backtest because markets were bullish 90% of the time since 1990.
