A Closer Look

The VIX is a volatility index that can be used to find good entries. That’s what we do in this edge

The edge is composed of:

  1. A Trend Filter
  2. A Moving Average Filter
  3. An RSI Entry
  4. An RSI Exit

1. A Trend Filter

The first filter is a trend filter, so that we trade only when the trend is favouring our entry!

2. A Moving Average Filter

The second filter is a plain, moving average filter.

3. An RSI Entry

The RSI is used for the entry.

4. An RSI Exit

To exit the trade, we will use RSI  to determine when the market has made its swing, and the odds are no longer in our favour
