Volatility Switch indicator

Volatility Switch indicator

The Volatility Switch (VOLSWITCH) indicator, by Ron McEwan, estimates current volatility in respect to historical data, thus indicating whether the market is trending or in mean reversion mode. Range is normalized to 0 – 1.

When Volatility Switch rises above the 0.5 level, volatility in the market is increasing, thus the price action can be expected to become choppier with abrupt moves. When the indicator falls below the 0.5 level from recent high readings, volatility decreases, which may be considered a sign of trend formation.

Trading strategy as suggested by Ron McEwan is:
– If VOLSWITCH is less than 0.5, volatility decreases, which may be considered a sign of trend formation
– If VOLSWITCH is greater than 0.5, market is in high volatility mode. Can be choppy. Use RSI to look for OB/OS levels.
