CM_Williams_Vix_Fix Finds Market Bottoms

Larry Williams Developed This Incredible Indicator. It Gives The Same Readings The VIX does for Stock Index’s…But This Indicator Works on All Asset Classes.

I Customized The Settings Slightly To Create “Percentile” Based Highlight Bars…So You May Need To Adjust Slightly For Your Asset Class. These Are The Standard Settings Shown Here. Designed For Daily Charts…But Works GREAT On Intra-Day Charts!!!
