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.

      The Smoothed WPR indicator is a powerful VertexFx client side indicator script that provides insights into the market trend and reversal of trends. It is based on the Williams %R indicator. The Williams %R displays the relationship of the current closing price with respect to recent N highs and lows. Unlike normal oscillators, Williams %R is a negative oscillator, in the sense that -100 represents oversold conditions and 0 represents overbought conditions. The Williams %R although very useful in identifying trend reversals produces whipsaws when there is a large deviation in the latest closing price. To avoid whipsaws and provide more reliable technique for identifying reversals the Williams %R is smoothed using a smoothing co-efficient. By default the smoothing co-efficient calculated as 2 / (1 + SMOOTHING PERIOD). By default the smoothing period is same as the Williams %R period. However, the user can override the default smoothing period by set the value of SMOOTH_PERIOD to the desired period. When the value of Smoothed WPR is falling it indicates a bearish trend. When the value falls below -80 and starts reversing (or moves sideways), then oversold trend is nearing completion and the market should turn from bearish to neutral or bullish. Similarly, when the value of Smoother WPR is rising it indicaters a bullish trend. When the value rises above -20 and starts reversing or exhibits sideways movement, then it can be inferred that the bullish market is nearing completion. It is very likely that the market will turn sideways or bearish soon after this event. BUY / EXIT SHORT - It is recommended to enter a LONG position (or exit SHORT) when the Smoothed WPR is below -80 and starts moving sideways or upwards. SHORT / EXIT LONG - It is recommended to enter SHORT position (or exit LONG) when the Smoother WPR is above -20 and starts moving sideways or downwards.

MACRO EVENTS & NEWS OF 19th Sepember 2019.FX News Today The FOMC announcement that delivered the expected 25 bp cut that was widely expected, but didn’t signal further moves down the line.

Brexit: UK given ultimatum to submit Irish border proposals by Sep 30. The focus now turns to central bank decisions in Europe, where BoE and SNB are expected to hold policy unchanged, while Norges Bank could dodge the trend and deliver a hike. Charts of the DayTechnician’s Corner YEN: The Yen posted fresh trend lows against the Dollar, though remained just off the lows it saw against the Euro, Australian Dollar and other currencies yesterday. USDJPY printed a 6-week high at 108.26 in what is now the fourth consecutive day of higher-high making.

The Libor target was replaced with a key policy rate, but the central bank was adamant that the degree of monetary accommodation remains unchanged. After the ECB cut rates, while the Fed is now widely expected to ease rates, the SNB has little room to manoeuvre, especially against the backdrop of ongoing Brexit uncertainty and geopolitical trade risks. The SNB’s central message remains that the situation remains fragile and the currency “highly valued”. Interest Rate Decision, MPC Voting (GBP, GMT 11:00) – Shadowed by the ongoing political developments in Brexit, the BoE is not expected to proceed with any interest rate actions.
