USD/RUB? Anybody Tried?

Recently the interest sparked to emerging markets like Turkey or Russia, in connection with this I would like to hear any opinions on trading with USD/RUB or USD/TRY. Thankfully have these pairs on hotforex with quite competitive spreads, but heard they may experience severe lack of liquidity sometimes. Is it true?
Any information relevant to my inquiry is much appreciated.:)

SSL Channel Alert - VertexFX VTL Script

SSL Channel Alert is a client side VTL Script. SSL Channel is calculated as moving average of highs and lows of the bar. This can be used for breakout trading.

The green line above red line indicates bullish market. In bearish market, the green line is below red line. Red line can be used as stop loss. A buy is triggered when green line crosses above red line and sell is triggered when green line crosses below red line.

In trending markets the indicator generates good signals, but in sideways market it may trigger choppy signals.

The indicator triggers an alert when trend change is identified.

Alligator Indicator - VertexFX VTL

The alligator indicator consists of three displaced moving averages. They are called the alligator jaws, (blue line), teeth, red line and lips, green line. The jaws is 13 period moving average displaced by 8 bars forward, teeth is 8 period moving average displaced by 5 bars and lips is 5 period moving average displaced by 3 bars.

The alligator is a metaphor. When the three moving averages are entwined, the alligator is sleeping. This indicates a flat market. A trend begins when the alligator wakes up, that is, when the moving averages moves away, or widens. The green line moves fast followed by the red line and finally the blue line. This is the beginning of a trend. Better trades can be opened when a trend is identified.

Alternative Ichimoku Indicator - VertexFX VTL

Alternative Ichimoku is an alternative to the famous indicator Ichimoku Cloud. The main difference between Ichimoku Kinko Hyo and Alternative Ichomku is the shorter periods for the indicator.

The main components of Alternative Ichomku are the cloud (area between thick lines) and the trigger line (blue line). The cloud is useful in identifying trend. When price trades above the Cloud, trend is up or bullish and when price trades below cloud trend is down or bearish.

When price breaks through the cloud from below, it is beginning of an up trend and when cloud is broken downward from above the cloud, it is the beginning of a down trend. Price trading within the cloud indicates a sideways trend.

Ichimoku Cloud - VertexFx VTL

The Ichimoku Cloud indicator, known as "Ichimoku Kinko Hyo" or one look equilibrium chart is useful in identifying high probability trades. The Ichimoku chart consists of three lines (the red, blue and green line in chart) and a cloud. The red line is called Tenkan Sen or conversion line and the blue line is called Kijun Sen or base line. The green line is called Chikou Span or lagging span. The cloud is the area between the two thick lines. These lines are called Senkou Span A,(pink line) and senkou Span B (steel blue line).

Leman Trend Alert VertexFX


This is a client side VTL script for VertexFX Terminal

Leman Trend indicator tries to identify the trend direction by measuring price acceleration. For price acceleration, Leman trend uses 3 different periods. The

upward momentum of price is plotted as a green line and downward momentum as a red line.

When the upward momentum rises above downward momentum, (green line crossing above red line) trend direction is up and the opposite for down trend. The green

and red line cross over can be used for trading signals. When green line rises above red line, price is expected to trade higher and when red line rises above

green line, price is expected to trade down.

Elliot Wave Oscillator VertexFX


The Elliott Oscillator is a 34 period simple moving average of prices subtracted from a 5 period simple moving average of prices displayed as a histogram above and below a zero line.

Elliot wave analysts can use Elliot wave oscillator for identifying the 5-3 wave structure of price moves. The most important concept about the Oscillator is that the highest/lowest point of the Oscillator is connected to the bullish/bearish Wave 3 of Elliot wave structure. Elliot wave analysis is very complex and difficult for many traders. However Elliot wave oscillator can be used for divergence trading. In the image, observe the divergence between price and the oscillator. After divergence, observe the emergence of a down trend.

Buzzer Alert VertexFX


Buzzer is a modification on moving average to identify trend direction. Normal moving average strategy is to buy when price is above moving average and sell when price is below moving average. However Buzzer works in a different manner. When the buzzer line is rising or flat after a rise, it indicates up trend and when buzzer line is declining or flat after a decline, it indicates down trend. The trading strategy with buzzer line is to buy when the line begins to rise and sell when the line begins to decline.
