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.

      The EURX indicator is a powerful VertexFx client-side indicator script that calculates the Euro Index in real-time. The Euro Index is a powerful macro-economic indicator that presents a composite view of the European currencies. It is calculated from five major European currencies, namely EURUSD, EURGBP, EURCHF, EURJPY and EURSEK (Swedish Krona). The calculation of the Euro Index is as follows, 34.38805726 x Pow(EURUSD, 0.3155) x Pow(EURJPY, 0.1891) x Pow(EURGBP, 0.3056) x Pow(EURSEK, 0.0785) x Pow(EURCHF, 0.1113) where Pow(currency, exponent) is the exponent (power) of the currency value. The main Euro Index labeled EURX is plotted as a thick line. The indicator also plots two moving averages of the EURX, namely the short term and long term moving average. The periods of these averages can be configured and changed by modifying the SMA_PERIOD_SHORT and SMA_PERIOD_LONG respectively. The EURX depicts the strength of the Euro against the five major currencies, namely the US dollar, the Japanese yen, the Swiss franc, the British pound and the Swedish kroner. A rising EURX index implies that the Euro is gaining strength against other currencies, and a falling EURX index implies the Euro is weakening against the other currencies. Therefore, we buy when the EURX is rising and sell when EURX is falling. The short term moving average provides a reference as to when to buy or sell the Euro based on the EURX indicator. BUY : Enter a BUY trade in any of the Euro denonimated currencies, namely EURUSD, EURGBP, EURCHF, EURJPY or EURSEK when the EURX indicator crosses above its short term moving average. SELL : Enter a SELL trade in any of the Euro denominated currencies, namely EURUSD, EURGBP, EURCHF, EURJPY or EURSEK when the EURX indicator crosses below its short term moving average.

      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.

    • WHAT ARE PENDING ORDERS AND THEIR TYPES? We just feel like explaining some basics terms of our trading signals to you, for the sake of those who may not understand. Instant Executions: These are market orders to be executed immediately at the current market price. They are simply “buy” or “sell” orders. Pending orders: A pending order is an order that is not yet a live trade. It is an order that you place because you do not want to buy or sell before the price of a financial instrument reaches a certain point. The order will be pending until the market reaches your preferred entry level. A pending order will be in place for as long as the price does not reach your entry level. You can set your pending order to expire on a certain date and time (i.e. if it does not reach your entry price before then), or you can close it manually. While a pending order remains in place, you can also adjust its stop and/or take profit level(s). Once price reaches your preferred entry level, the order will be triggered even if you’re completely offline, as your order is already in your broker’s server. There are several types of pending orders but we use 4 most popular for our signals here. They are: Buy Stop Sell Stop Buy Limit And Sell Limit Buy Stop: It is an order that enables you to buy at a higher price. For example, assuming Silver (XAGUSD) is currently at 18.685, you can set a Buy Stop order that will trigger a trade once the price reaches 19.000. Sell Stop: It is an order that enables you to sell at a lower price. Let’s use the same example of Silver, if at 18.685. You can set a Sell Stop order that will trigger a trade once the price reaches 18.215. Buy Limit: This is an order which makes you to buy at a lower price. If S&P 500 is trading at 3185.75, you may want to enable a Buy Limit order that will trigger a trade for you once that trading instrument plummets towards 3175.05. Sell Limit: This is an order that allows you to sell at a higher price. Let us say S&P 500 is trading at 3185.75, you can elect to enable a Sell Limit order that will trigger a trade for you once that S&P 500 rallies towards 3200.75. We hope this short article has thrown some light on your queries. You can message us if there are more questions. May your trades be green.   Source: https://learn2.trade
