What does it mean when one of the filters has both a 1 in the entry and exit?

FWIW, the much simpler IFT Trigger for volatility has signals an entry to TVIX or UVXY for tomorrow. It has been ages since there's been a buy sign on the simple trigger for volatility.

Not my filter.

I don't think there should be simultaneous entries and exits on the same filter, but I just took what Kevin made and wrapped it all together. There are some filters where the column returns 2, like short exit No 4 today. This can be repaired by changing the last line into:

set{exit4a, exit1b1 + exit2b1}
set{exit4,count(exit4a above 0.5,1)}

First time, I got no signals at all. Totally out. Is that what y'all are getting? Thanks in advance.

so is it just me, or does it seem like the VIX is really heating up?? (just looking at charts, not necessarily filters).

Yet it remains at a fairly high contango level (12.7% as of today's close). The VIX is the spot price, which we cannot actually trade - that is the real challenge to this system, one which I did not take into account in its development.

The absolute level of the ^VIX is secondary to its contango level if you are trying to trade volatility using VXX, XIV, TVIX, etc. One might pay more attention to the RATIO of ^VXV/^VIX or ^VIX/^VXST as a way to gauge directional trades, but I will stick with contango levels for my indicators.

I took a very substantial position in XIV today, given the high contango levels and roll yield (at 15% with 26 days until expiration).
