I tried using that data but I didnt find it useful enough for trading purposes. Whats on a one minute chart I thought. Today I use StockCharts the difference VXST minus VXMT. Bull market is negative anywhere. The selloff earlier this year had 42 TD Consecutive in solid positive territory. That may never be exceeded, atleast in my lifetime.

That delta between vxst and vxmt was a positive value for the entire session for 42 trading days in a row. Its a stunning statistic based on the data history. But I dont use this in a vacuum though. Like combine that with the CNN greedo meter below 30......thats a rather easy path to trade UVXY as an example. Always.....what should I be trading. Otherwise I really want to be trading TQQQ.
