The Welford Variance indicator is a useful VertexFx clientside indicator for identifying trend changes on higher timeframes.
It calculates the standard deviation and variance of the price changes over the Variance Period (VAR_PERIOD), and then smoothes it using a smoothing coefficient. The Welford Variance indicator should be used in combination with other trendfollowing oscillators like Relative Strength Index (RSI), Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) or Stochastic Oscillator.
The standard deviation defines how much the current price is deviating from the mean price. Higher the standard deviation, greater is the volality. In the first step, we calculate the mean and standard deviation of the recent VAR_PERIOD candles. In the next step, we calculate the variance by subtracting the price from the standard deviation. Finally, we smooth the variance, using the coefficient, which is reciprocal of (1 + VAR_PERIOD). When the variance increases, the probabilty of fast price movement in the current direction is very high. As a result the Welford Variance indicator can provide powerful trade entries with minimal lag.
BUY / EXIT SHORT  Enter LONG (or exit SHORT) at the close after the Welford Variance indicator has bottomed out and is rising, and other confirmation indicator like RSI, MACD or Stochastic Oscillator has turned bullish. The stoploss can be set to the nearest Swing Low.
SHORT / EXIT LONG  Enter SHORT (or exit LONG) at the close after the Welford Variance indicator has peaked out and is falling, and other confirmation indicator like RSI, MACD or Stochastic Oscillator has turned bearish. The stoploss can be set to the nearest Swing High.

KalmanFilterVelocity VertexFX indicator
The KalmanFilterVelocity (KFV) is a powerful VertexFX clientside indicator based on the Kalman Filter (KF) algorithm.
The KalmanFilterVelocity indicator employs the Kalman Filter to estimate the direction and strength of the trend. It is particularly useful in identifying reversal or trends. It enhances the standard Kalman Filter but detecting the velocity (the rate of change) of the base Kalman Filter. A change in the direction of the velocity implies a change a trend.
In the first step we calculate the Kalman Filter also known as Linear Quadratic Estimation for all the prices. We use the change in the closing price of each candle and its predecessor to estimate whether this change is sustainable. Hence, if prices are rising, but at a slower rate it implies that the trend is ending. Likewise, if the price is falling, but at a slower rate it implies that the bearish trend is ending.
When the KFV changes from RED to BLUE below the zero level it implies that a strong bullish trend has started and the trader can enter LONG positions. On the contrary, when the KFV changes from BLUE to RED above the zero level it implies that a strong bearish trend has started and the trader can enter SHORT positions. A change from RED to BLUE above the zero level, or from BLUE to RED below the zero level is ignored because it is identified as weakness or whipsaws.
BUY / EXIT SHORT  In TREND mode, enter LONG (or exit SHORT) at the close of the candle when the KFV indicator turns BLUE below the zero level. In KALMAN mode, enter LONG (or exit SHORT) when the KFV indicator turns BLUE. The stoploss should be placed at the nearest Swing Low.
SHORT / EXIT LONG  In KALMAN mode, enter SHORT (or exit LONG) at the close of the candle when the KFV indicator turns RED above the zero level. In KALMAN mode, enter SHORT (or exit LONG) when the KFV indicator turns RED. The stoploss should be placed at the nearest Swing High.
