New technical application predicts market volatility explosions.

Global Trading Indicators, in collaboration with Global Securities Colombia, has announced the availability of a new technical analysis application on the Bloomberg App Portal. The app is available to subscribers of the Bloomberg Professional service (Terminal) globally at {APPS}.

The GTIndicators App is based on a theory called Volatility Explosion Relatively Adjusted (VERA), which adjusts the indicator signals when volatility explosions occur. The app is designed to warn when a moment of market explosion will occur, giving investors a signal so they can generate a new investment strategy.

"Lately, abrupt market changes, such as gaps and high volatility, are more frequent. Technological developments accelerate and, in some cases, have magnified reactions to unpredictable events. This tool will improve the management of investment strategies," said Agustín Vera Torres, quantitative strategies director, Global Securities, Colombia.

Investors in Colombia and other emerging markets will be able to analyze drastic changes between the close of a day and the opening of the following day (GAPs) locally. This is useful when immediate perspective is needed and European and Asian markets are closed, Torres added.

Global Trading Indicators is a package of technical indicators to analyze any market or asset which can help professionals to:

- Fix possible gaps of highly volatile markets

- Adjust strategies in times of market volatility explosion

- Create investment strategies in real time from signal adjusted volatility

- Identify the possible formation of choppy markets

- Improve intra-day operations to have a more precise tool
