Firebird is an indicator to identify the price spikes in the market. Firebird indicator first calculates a 10-period moving average, then shifts this moving average a certain percentage above and below the 10-period moving average. The shifted averages are drawn on chart as the red and green line. When price touches these lines, price spike is identified. Usually after a price spike, the trend reverses for some time. The indicator can be used to take advantage of this price behaviors. In daily chart usually the 10 period MA is shifted by 2 percent to form the price bands. On lower time frames like Hourly, Four Hour a smaller percentage price shift is used like 0.5% . The important consideration here is most of the price bars must be contained within the upper and lower bands. When price reaches above the upper red band, a sell position is opened. When price reaches the lower green band, buy position is opened. Trades can be managed with proper stop loss and take profit. In the picture, Firebird indicator is attached to daily chart of EUR/USD with 2% shift on MA. Note that almost all price bars are within the price bands. And when price extends beyond these bands, price trend reverses and comes back into the bands. FireBird.zip
Time Trader is a Server Side VTL Expert Adviser. The EA Opens a trade at the time specified. Markets may be highly volatile at some times during the trading day such as important news release time, London or US session open. Because of the high volatility, opening trades amnually at such times may be less efficient as price move very quickly and by the time the order details are entered into terminal, price may have significantly moved. Speed of execution is critically important in these situations. The time trader EA is a useful tool at such times. Time trader runs on the server and open positions at the specified time without any latency as it is running on the server. Enter the time to open the trade into the parameters of the EA, the time can be specified in Hour, minute, seconds format. Also the user can configure the EA to open a buy position or sell position or both at the same time. The EA applies stop loss and take profit specified by the user. Thus the EA can be used to open market neutral trade at important news release time. For a market neutral trade, open both buy and sell at the same time and apply a small stop loss and large target. One trade stops out, but the other trades make sufficient profit to end up with a net profit on both trades due to the big moves present at important news release time. In case the trader has got a directional bias, EA can open Buy or Sell position as specified in the parameters of the EA. TimeTrader.zip
