Volatility Index values:

below 0.75 the lowest volatility or flats

0.75 - 0.9 indicate weak trends

0.91 - 1.5 show average trends

above 1.5 show active trends

Volatility Screener's index shows the market movement potential relative to past prices taking into account current market realities. That lets identify assets with low volatility (flats and triangles) and high volatility (trends).

Low index values indicate that the low volatility dominate in the market now, a certain converging formation takes place and there is no strong directed market movement. You often see a flat or a triangle on the chart at that time. This means that the price can move in any direction soon, breaking through the nearest support and resistance levels.

High index values indicate that the asset may be interesting for traders who trade impulse movements in the trend or expect correction waves emergence to search for pullback entry points in the direction of the trend from more attractive price levels.

Maximum and minimum index values indicate different market conditions (ranging from the flat in the run-up to strong market movements to the active phase of the trend).

The higher the screener's index, the more actively the market moves at the moment.
