These days it is common to find indicators that have been quickly cobbled together out of already existing ones. While this approach may provide a smattering of bells and whistles, it lacks the type of depth and integrity that a cohesive, rich model requires. In contrast, the Franklin Volatility Index Algorithmic Model grew from in-depth analysis and a broad, global view, thus providing a more consistent and comprehensive currency trading signal prognosticator.
The Franklin Volatility Index is designed for seeking arbitrage during all trading times although it makes the most sense to exploit statistical opportunities during theoretically lower volatility trading sessions. The misconception about Forex is that trading during peak times leads to greater profits. While trading ranges are greater during this time the ability to predict directional changes is much more challenging due to potentially excessive volatility. The Franklin Volatility Index thrives off this potentially excessive volatility for discovering statistical misalignments in the Forex markets for arbitrage moments during typically low volatility trading times. Utilizing spread and unilateral trading techniques, the Franklin Volatility Index helps to exploit these opportunities.
