3 Volatility Strategies To Get You Started Trading Volatility – (Strategy Bundles)

This bundle consists of three strategies that can be labeled volatility trading strategies. The strategies are backtested on the ETF with the ticker code SPY, which tracks the S&P 500. We have not backtested on @ES, but it might work if trading the same opening hours as SPY.


Buy and sell orders are backtested using the closing price (how to trade at the close – or alternative entries). No commissions and slippage included (estimated commissions and slippage).

In all our bundles you will find both Amibroker code, Tradestation code, Pine Script/TradingView, and the strategy written in plain English. The strategies are long-only due to the nature of the index.

  • 2 strategies are not published anywhere on our website
  • One strategy is in our monthly membership.

These strategies are long-only due to the nature of the index backtested.

Please read this before you buy:

  • We don’t give rebates if you already believe you have one of the strategies. We believe the strategies are pretty cheap anyway.
