VIX Algo


The VIX algorithm takes advantage of the Volatility Index (VIX). This represents the market’s expectations for the relative strength of the S&P 500 Index. Traders use the VIX to measure the level of risk, fear, or stress in the market when making trading decisions.

The VIX algo developed by Samuel Leach uses various factors to determine the probability of direction using mathematically levels based on historical performance. Once the directions confirmed the algorithms strategy aims to take advantage of holding the directional trade until its probability of directional continuation changes.

What Do You Get?

Upon completing your purchase you will receive a single license expert advisor file that is designed for Metatrader 5. This is the algorithmic software that will perform your inputted functions. Secondly you will receive a lot size calculator that will show you based on historical data what lot sizes have been used based on account size for testing purposes. Finally you will receive MT5 backtested account examples showing you historical tested data of what the inputs and variables have been based on. 

Once you have received your algorithm it is an easy process to setup and can be turned on within a short period of time. Once installed you can input your desired variables based on the installation information and your personal preferences, then you are all set to go! 

The Benefits

  • A Tool That Can Implement Your Inputs and Perform Tasks Automated
  • Never miss a trade that meets your requirements, monitors the VIX around the clock
  • 10 Years of Functional Testing Completed
  • Live Trading Stats with inputted variables
  • Trades VIX Index Based On Inputted functions
  • Can Open, Close, Manage trades based on your inputted settings.


What platform is the VIX algorithm compatible with?

The VIX algorithm can be run on any MT5 platform. However the historical data tests were held on YLD FX brokerage on their MT5 platform. The reason behind this is their futures contract does not have any overnight holding fees or swaps.

How Long Will It Take To Receive My Algorithm?

Once we have received your order and account information (trading platform and account number) our coding team will aim to get your algorithm despatched within 1-3 working days during normal working hours Monday – Friday.

Who built the VIX algorithm?

The algorithm was developed by Samuel Leach the director of samuel and co trading. The coding was written by our internal coding team and data tested by our algorithmic team.

What platforms are your algorithms compatible with?

Our algorithms are compatible with MetaTrader 4 and MetaTrader 5. Each purchase is coded to a single trading account. If you change your account a recode fee will apply. Unless otherwise stated.

How long will it take to receive my algorithm?

Once we have received your order and account information (trading platform and account number) our coding team will aim to get your algorithm dispatched within 48 hours during normal working hours Monday – Friday.

Who built your algorithms?

Our algorithms have been built by the Samuel & Co Trading team. These algorithms have been functionally tested, however we do release updates from time to time.

What support do I get with the algorithm?

When we send out your algorithm, you will also receive a step by step guide on how to install and set up your algorithm onto your charts. We also offer email support if you are struggling to load the algorithm onto your MT4 or MT5 platform.
