Short to Long-Term Volatility Indicator based on High/Low Trading Data

by Tom Huggens, 3021 days ago

This indicator measures the volatility by subtracting the highest high over a specific period by the lowest low over the same period. In other words, the volatility here represents the distance between the highest and lowest value over a specific lookback period. You can of course modify the function and implement you own volatility definition.

The Short to Long volatility indicator divides the short term volatility (default lookback period is 10) by the long term volatility (default lookback period is 30). The resulting line trends up when the volatility increases and it trends down the volatility decreases. A value higher than 1 indicates that the short term volatility is greater than the long term volatility.

The long and short term periods should be specified in the first and second parameters of the "LSTVol" function. For example, "LSTVol(30, 90)", compares the 30-Bar volatility (short-term) to the 90-Bar volatility (long-term).

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
