Vertical Horizontal Filter

Vertical Horizontal Filter

Created by Adam White, the Vertical Horizontal Filter helps the user determine whether a particular price is trending. The higher the Vertical Horizontal Filter value, the more a particular contract is trending. In addition, the direction of the Vertical Horizontal Filter shows what phase the Vertical Horizontal Filter is entering:

  • A rising Vertical Horizontal Filter means that prices are trending.
  • A falling Vertical Horizontal Filter means that prices are stablizing around a specific range.

Selecting the Vertical Horizontal Filter allows you to set the Period (as number of minutes) and the color of the result.

Configuration Options

  • Period: Number of bars to use in the calculations.
  • Color Selectors: Colors to use for graph elements.
  • Display Axis Label: Whether to display the most recent value on the Y axis.

Formula

The Vertical Horizontal Filter is calculated as follows:

\[ VHF = \frac{ABS(High Closing Price - Low Closing Price)}{ \sum_{j=1}^{n}ABS(Close_{j} - Close_{j-1})} \]
