Historical Volatility Percentile tells you the percentage of the days from the past year (252 trading days) that have lower volatility than the current volatility.
I included a simple moving average as a signal line to show you how volatile the stock is at the moment.
I have included simple colors to let you know when to enter or exit a position.
I know a Trader that went 18 months without a losing trade. This Trader averaged trading 700-800 contracts per month in the Futures markets.
The was not his only system but here were his rules.
He looked at the 60 minute bar and calculated the ranges of the bars over the last 3 months. IF the range of the Bar was Greater Than the 99th Percentile, He would Fade...
This is an experimental study designed to identify the trend of price action over a specified period using percentiles.
First, the 50th percentile is calculated over the sampling period using the nearest rank method. I've found that this calculation is useful as a proxy for moving averages and other filters of that class.
Next, the channel levels are calculated....
This simple script was a collaborative effort with 4X4good.
It plots a moving median for the period using the 50th percentile value.
We wanted to know the median value of VIX but surprisingly, a median indicator wasn't yet available in the indicators library.
So we did a little research & put this together.
Statistical methods based on mean cannot be effective all the time when attributed to financial data since it doesn't usually follow normal distribution, the data can be skewed or/and have extreme values which can be described as outliers.
In order to deal with this problem it is appropriate to use median-based techniques.
The most common one is called...
I compared custom median (using the sorting solution by @apozdnyakov) with built-in median (using percentile_nearest_rank function)
If you see the zero line this means the solutions give the same results.
The best results was achieved on the odd lengths.
1) Do not try to reinvent the wheel.
2) Always check the Pine Script docs to find already...
Tracks the percentage gain/loss in three ranges:
single candle (can be turned on or off)
custom range of candles
custom range of candles
For example, with a range of 3 candles, and the serie:
1 - close 10
2 - close 5
3 - close 20
The moving gain would be:
1 - close 10 - gain 10, infinite%
2 - close 5 - gain 5, infinite%
3 - close 18 - gain 8,...
