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.

    • Date : 10th April 2020. EURUSD Turns Higher | April 10.EURUSD,H1The EURUSD closed at a six-day high (1.0928) and above the 20-day moving average for the first time in 9 days, yesterday ahead of the extended Easter holiday weekend. Action from the Fed, helped weaken the Dollar and action, from the EU supported the EUR. Today the pair continues to track higher in extremely thin markets and very low volume to 1.0945. Next resistance is the upper Bollinger band at 1.0955 and R1 at 1.0973 with the Daily pivot point sitting at 1.0906 above the psychological 1.0900. The Daily chart has resistance (50-day moving average and 38.2 Fibonacci level at 1.10970 and then the 200-day moving average and 50.0 Fib level at 1.1070, before the 61.8 Fib at 1.1180. Immediate support sits at 1.0900, the April low at 1.0775 with the March low sitting at 1.0635.The Fed announced new unprecedented facilities to deal with the coronavirus and the containment policies that have largely shut the US economy. Under these new measures, which include programmes to support state and local governments, as well as small and mid-sized companies, the Fed will provide up to $2.3 tln in additional aid. The Dollar got hit across the board as a result, leaving this a case of USD weakness as opposed to EUR strength. Brave new world.The EUR also received a lift as European Finance Ministers agree financing of joint virus response. The immediate support measures focus on three pillars.   First a EUR 100 bln (or around 0.7% of EU GDP) employment re-insurance – SURE – designed to support wage subsidies, for furloughed workers and self-employed. This measure will not just help those temporarily laid off, but also help companies to keep on trained staff through the lockdowns and thus lay the ground for a quick restart of production and work once lockdowns are being lifted. The European Investment Bank (EIB) will also provide EUR 200 bln liquidity to support small and medium sized companies, in countries where support is limited. These are loans and costs will only be realised if they are defaulted on. The last part of the package – focused on the Eurozone – are EUR 240 bln of credit lines to sovereigns that will be provided by the European Stability Mechanism (ESM). Unlike the original bailout funds, for which the ESM was set up, these will come with very few conditions attached. The only condition is that the funds must be used to cover direct and indirect health , cure and prevention related costs. The ESM is jointly backed by Eurozone governments and offer a sort of “Eurobond-light”. The ESM always offered the best way to jointly fund a direct response, as a new “Coronabond” or “Coronafund”, would have taken a long time to set up and faced additional legal hurdles at national level. The use of the ESM also paves the way for the ECB to use the OMT program – if necessary – to support the funding. All these measures cover the initial response to the challenges of locked down economies and the European Commission will be setting up investment programs financed through the multi annual budget to support the recovery once lockdowns have ended, in addition to measures already agreed.Always trade with strict risk management.
