Volatility indicators highlight potential moves of a stock which can either move sharply in the updwards or downwards direction. This indicator allows stocks to be compared on a level playing field to highlight high and low volatility.

Use volatility indicators in conjunction with other indicators to reduce exposure to false moves.

Isentia (ASX:ISD): Coles Reaction (LL)

Roger Cole devised a method to use rally and reaction days. Cole disregarded inside and outside days to find three rally days in a row or three reactions in a row. This is like three soldiers or three crows in candlestick pattern analysis, except Cole allowed for inside or outside days to intervene. Three soldiers and three crows, while rare, are extremely reliable. So Cole gave us some relief from a strict definition, but traded off increased frequency at the expense of reliability. Cole also used moving average crossovers to augment the two-day (rally, reaction, inside, outside day) results.

Calculation: Coles Reaction Day:
1) Rally Day: High > High yesterday & Low > Low yesterday;
2) Reaction Day: High > High yesterday & Low < Low yesterday
