Depends on what returns you want, but one suggestion - forget *all* traditional indicators.

I think that is the reason all of us are here. The first question you have to answer is what do you mean by :"really works"? The second question is what are you willing to do to get what you want?

Long time lurker... new member here.

I'm working on something that uses the ratio of VIX/VXV to calculate the amount of backwardation on VXX (or any other volatility fund, ie.. VXX, UVXY, etc).

I'll post my code in the next few days once its complete but the general idea is this:
1. using yesterdays close of VIX and VXV, calculate ratio (r) = vix/vxv
2. If (r) > threshold (0.92), go SHORT else go LONG

Adam:
I have been trading the same strategy that Thomas Ping mentioned for the past 4 months with huge success. Unfortunately, none of the code is in Quantconnect's C# and instead is written in Python. My python code is fully tested and works through IB API. If you guys can help convert the code to C# I would be happy to post it here to let others benefit.

@Andrew - do you mind sharing your code? I have very little programming experience with c++ but utilize Python mainly. I am curious to see what the code would look like in C++. Did you and Eugeny work it out? Seems like it would be fairly simplistic logic?

Trying to get a couple algos up and running, as I trade futures mainly at the moment.
