    Does anyone know where i can find a chart showing this below? Its implied volatility minus realized volatility. Or if anyone could help me build an excel doc? 🙂

    sorry, formula should be implied volatility / realized volatility and a standard deviation from average

    I have coded this indicator, but it seems it’s not the one you are looking for.
    If you know how the average and the STD are applied to the result of the division, I could change it:

    really really appreciate your help roberto!! 😀


    I think the indicator is made frome this:

    If you go to the end of the document there are alot of calculations.

    There seems to be a pretty big edge


    Results should look something like this when adding it to sp500/omxs30 chart

    i also found this when googled for volatility ratio calculations:


    How is Volatility Ratio Calculated?

    One of the most commonly used methods for calculating volatility is the standard deviation. However, calculations of volatility and volatility ratiox may vary across the industry. In his book, “Technical Analysis,” Jack Schwager introduced the concept of volatility ratio. Another common method of identifying rice ranges and patterns that can lead to trading signals is plotting historical volatility.

    1. The formula by Jack Schwager is as follows:

    VR = TTR/ATR

    Here, VR stands for Volatility Ratio.

    TTR stands for Today’s True Range, which is calculated by subtracting the maximum price from the minimum price. The maximum price is the highest price of the current trading day minus the closing price of the previous trading day. The minimum price is the lowest price of the current trading day minus the closing price of the previous trading day.

    thanks roberto!


    But is it possible to have the indicator appear like the original picture below? Using it like overbough/oversold areas?

    #190888 Report

    There’s no fixed limit, it ranges from 0 up to…..

    It’s not easy to code something that should look like something else which is unknown.

    You should try to find the formula of that indicator.

    i found this code nicolas posted in an indicator. Is it possible to combine this code to the one you created for me to have it shown similar to my original post?

    To make it appear like your original one, I need the rules that have made that pic appear like that (not the picture itself).
