From your response, it appears that you are looking to access values of the VIX (or any index), or measures based on the VIX, in your filter logic. You are not, as the wishlist item describes, looking to have the VIX appear as a match to your filter.

If the assumption above is correct, then the functionality you are looking for is/has-been available via the "ind()" feature. This feature allows you to access the value of a measure for a specified index/symbol.

For example, to require the ^VIX crossing above an Upper Bollinger Band, you would use:

and ind(^VIX,close) crossed above ind(^VIX, Upper Bollinger Band(9,2.0))

Unfortunately, we are not aware how that can be much more straightforward than what is available at this point.
