Vix FIX / StochRSI Strategy

This strategy is based off of Chris Moody's Vix Fix Indicator. I simply used his indicator and added some rules around it, specifically on entry and exits.

Rules:
  • Enter upon a filtered or aggressive entry
  • If there are multiple entry signals, allow pyramiding
  • Exit when there is Stochastic RSI crossover above 80

This works great on a number of stocks. I am keeping a list of stocks with decent Profit Factors and clean equity curves here.

Possible ways to use this:
  • Modify this script and setup alerts around the various entries
  • Use as is with different stocks or currency pairs
  • Modify entry / exit points to make it more profitable for even more symbols and currencies

@timj Which alert should be used if you would like to receive the "long" signals?

or how would you go about setting this up in the code?

@brandonlongo0, look at the code around aggressive and filtered long signals.

does this repaint?

@CarlORourke, I don't know for certain.

This is a nice version of the VixFix, is there a reason why I can't put any alerts ? I tried to turn it into a "study" and wrote some alert conditions, but not sure it works adequately...

thanks for sharing such a great thing!
by the way, what period you use to trade with that strategy? did you try to mix VIX signals from different periods to make better Winning Percentage?

I think a step-line as the visual indicator is preferable to a triangle, any reason you chose the triangle?
