VIX Reversal Scalper - Stocks Only
This indicator is built for scalping, but can be used for swing trades by adjusting the signal settings to a higher number. This indicator is meant for stocks with a lot of price action and volatility, so for best results, use it on charts that move similar to the S&P 500 or other similar charts.
This indicator uses real time data from the stock market overall, so it should only be used on stocks and will only give a few signals during after hours. It does work ok for crypto, but will not give signals when the US stock market is closed.
How To Use
When the VIX Volatility Index trend changes direction, it will give a bull or bear signal on the chart depending on which way the VIX is now trending. Follow these when price is near support/resistance or fibonacci levels. For more signals with earlier entries, go into settings and reduce the number. 10-100 is best for scalping. For less signals with later entries, change the number to a higher value. Use 100-500 for swing trades. Can go higher for long swing trades.
This indicator should only be used on the US stock markets as signals are given based on the VIX volatility index which measures volatility of the US Stock Markets.
This indicator works on all time frames.
Repainting does happen but it is seldom. If I get enough requests to remove repainting I will, but since it is built for early entries, preventing it from repainting will make the signals show up later than normal.
Due to various factors, this indicator might not give exit signals every time it should, so be sure to watch the price action for entries/exits and don’t rely solely on this indicator.
If you are using this on an inverse ETF and the signals are showing backwards, please comment with what chart it is and I will configure the indicator to give the correct signals. I have included over 50 inverse ETFs into the code to show the correct signals on inverse charts, but I’m sure there are some that I have missed so feel free to let me know and I will update the script with the requested tickers.

April 22, 2022: Added ability to change symbol used for signals which allows you to use this with another stock that leads ahead of the stock you are trading or use the VIX from a different exchange or use a different country’s VIX as requested by a user.
Changed the default setting to use the RMA 10 for signals instead of the HMA 20. Seems to give better, more reliable signals with this setting.
Added ability to change the type of moving average being used and updated the title for signal length.
