As one of the indices on the Deriv Platform, trading Volatility 75 Index can give you a good return on your investment, and also make you lose your money, so it’s important that you take time to study the market structure before placing any trade. If you don’t understand anything about market structure, read this article : The Complete Guide to Price action trading

As a rule of thumb, you can experiment on Boom and Crash, but not on Volatility 75, because any small move or a small change in price can affect your equity adversely.

Here are 5 Mistakes you should avoid when Trading Volatility 75

1. Don’t trade if you don’t understand the market structure.

Many traders makes the mistake of entering the market without understanding what is really happening in the market.

You require a certain level of understanding of the market before you can be able to make substantive profit from the market (We will delve into this in details in this article)

2. Don’t be too ambitious at the start

Trading Volatility 75 can change your life but don’t be in a haste. Treat trading as your actual business and you will enjoy the market in the long run. Take it one step at a time; Learn, trade, grow and continue learning.

3. Don’t trade without a Trading Plan

It is important to have an investment guide before you place your first trade. Your guide will outline your trading and risk management strategy. Trading without a plan is a recipe for failure.

4. Picking low probability trades

Many traders make the mistake of picking trades without any analysis with the hope that the trade will give them huge profit.

For instance, they can just jump into V75 buy if they see a little push up without understanding what the market is doing. Don’t be like them, understand what is happening or what will happen in the market before you jump into the market.

5. Not expecting to Lose

Losing is part of trading. No matter how good a business is, every business must lose money in one way or the other. You have to be willing to keep going even when you momentarily loses. Your goal should be to make sure that your profit margin is higher that your lose margin.

How to Trade Volatility 75 Index

There is no special way of trading Volatility 75 Index. The pattern of trading Vol 75 is the same as with currency pairs. Just like currency pairs, the under listed are very important when trading Vol 75:

  • Support and Resistance
  • Trendlines
  • Market Structure

The only difference with currency pairs is that V75 is very volatile; meaning you can make good money within the shortest possible time, if your entries are right.

How I analyze Vol  75 Index

I start analyzing Vol 75 Index from the daily chart. Analyzing from a daily chart helps me understand the market trend. Personally, I normally use the line chart to study the market, then use Candlestick chart to place trade.

When using the line chart I focus on the closing price, which enables me to understand support and resistance. Once you can spot the major and minor support and resistance in the daily, you can have an idea of the market trend, then use lower time-frame to spot a perfect entry position for your trade

The Secret To Trading Volatility 75 Index

  • Avoid ranging market structure, but if the distance between the support and resistance is big enough, you can trade between the range (that is: buy at support, sell at resistance) or wait for breakout because price can’t stay in horizontal structure forever (read more)
  • Look out for the key zones (support and resistance lines)  on the daily timeframe and your trading timeframe. The key zones is what will guide you to draw your trendlines.
  • Trendlines are fundamental component of trading; learn how to draw trendline.
  • Always use proper risk management strategy (I mostly used 0.001 lot size)
  • If you don’t know the trend of the market, don’t place any trade
  • Volatility moves in a zigzag form, so if you can spot the formation of a ‘W’  of ‘M’ based on the market structure you can make money from the market.

I didn’t make much profit on my first week of trading Vol 75, but I started making crazy profit after 2 weeks of consistency. The only thing I did was that I discovered a strategy, test it on the demo, modified it, then use it on my real account.

When to Sell Volatility 75

The following conditions must be met before you place a sell on V75.

1. It Should be Overbought on the Daily Time frame:

This is very important, once you spot an overbought condition on the daily timeframe or on the 4 hour timeframe, you can go over to M30 or M5 to look for entry point. To get the overbought signal, you can use the settings on the screenshot below: Add Stochastic Indicator, then add alligator to the same indicator window as the stochastic.

Volatility 75

Setting for Stochastic


Setting for Alligator Indicator

Your Chart Should look like this after adding the two indicators.

Volatility 75

Your sell signal is when the 3 alligator line cross the 80 level of the Stochastic downward. However, this is a risky entry, to get a confirmatory entry, you need the price to bounce off your key zones (resistance zone in this case) on the chart. If it’s happen at a strong resistance zone on the chart, that is a very strong indication for a sell.

Secondly always be on the look out of the formation of the “M” or “W” shape on the chart. V75 mostly obeys this rule. If you look at market structure, you will see some major historical points on the chart. If I see a “M” formation for instance, I always wait for the formation of the ‘V’ within the “M” then sell at the top of the “V” to get the last leg of the “M”

Note: It is important that the conditions above are met, so that you can make good profit and not be scared of loses. 

When to buy Volatility 75

 It Should be Oversold on the Daily Time frame: 

Your buy signal is when the 3 alligator line cross the 20 level of the Stochastic upward. However, this is a risky entry, to get a confirmatory entry, you need the price to bounce off your key zones (support zone in this case) on the chart. If it’s happen at a strong support zone on the chart, that is a very strong indication for a buy.

Things you should know when trading V75

  • Beware of stop loss hunt and the liquidity trap in the market; only close your trade in red when you notice a clear violation of the market structure.
  • Volatility 75 is a very risky asset, it’s good to always have a clarity of where the market is going to, so do a top-down analysis of the market (look at the previous high and previous low, know the key points on the charts, etc.,) before placing any trade
  • Finally, trading Forex is risky, always apply proper risk management

  4. Hi man,
    I got a question pls. I will be glad if you respond:
    The oversold and overbought does not occur everyday on the daily time frame I.e it takes days to occur. So, how can one use it to spot the W and M shapes to trade everyday.


    • spotting M and W Shape try to use 4h timeframe and go down to 1h but mostly you find those two shapes on 15m timeframe
