Potential for Diverse Trading Strategies with FVE
If we were to utilize an intraday filter, such as constant volume bar breakout, I am positive the results would be much better.
Bottom left shows the daily equity graph for VIX futures spread strategy. Based on FVE Buy or Sell signals, one can buy (sell) the near month VIX futures and sell (buy) the next month futures. I ran the simulation for both the front month / second month spread & the second month / third month spread.
This simulation was conducted from July 1, 2007. (50 contracts spread, 0.025 spread slippage, $100 commissions). This strategy is more fitting for firm traders rather than individual traders. A market maker could leg into the spread strategy for positive slippage.
