This script compares trend trading with a volatility stop to "buy and hold".
Trades are taken with the trend, except when price exceeds a volatility
forecast. The trend is defined by a moving average crossover. The forecast
is based on projecting future volatility from historical volatility .

The trend is defined by two parameters:

- long: the length of a long ("slow") moving average.
- short: the length of a short ("fast") moving average.

The trend is up when the short moving average is above the long. Otherwise
it is down.

The volatility stop is defined by three parameters:

- volatility window: determines the number of periods in the historical
volatility calculation. More periods means a slower (smoother)
estimate of historical volatility .
- stop forecast periods: the number of periods in the volatility
forecast. For example, "7" on a daily chart means that the volatility
will be forecasted with a one week lag.
- stop forecast stdev: the number of standard deviations in the stop
forecast. For example, "2" means two standard deviations.


The default parameters are:

- long: 50
- short: 20
- volatility window: 30
- stop forecast periods: 7
- stop forecast standard deviations: 1

The trend will be up when the 20 period moving average is above the 50
period moving average. On each bar, the historical volatility will be
calculated from the previous 30 bars. If the historical volatility is 0.65
(65%), then a forecast will be drawn as a fuchsia line, subtracting
0.65 * sqrt(7 / 365) from the closing price. If price at any point falls
below the forecast, the volatility stop is in place, and the trend is


- The trend is shown by painting the slow moving average green (up), red
(down), or black (none; volatility stop ).
- The fast moving average is shown in faint blue
- The previous volatility forecasts are shown in faint fuchsia
- The current volatility forecast is shown as a fuchsia line, projecting
into the future as far as it is valid.

- The current historical volatility is given in the top right corner, as a
whole number percentage.
- The performance table shows the mean, standard deviation, and sharpe
ratio of the volatility stop trend strategy, as well as buy and hold.
If the trend is up, each period's return is added to the sample (the
strategy is long). If the trend is down, the inverse of each period's
return is added to the sample (the strategy is short). If there is no
trend (the volatility stop is active), the period's return is excluded
from the sample. Every period is added to the buy-and-hold strategy's
sample. The total number of periods in each sample is also shown.
הערות שחרור: - fixed the purple forecast lines to show the projected bound for the next N periods (not from the previous N periods, like the plots show)
- changed the forecast plot style to be more pleasing
