Elite Platinum Edition Installation and Updates 2017-04-02T16:18:25+00:00

SYSTEM STATUS: System Status IS GOOD

Please be sure and uninstall Forex Pro Toolkit and download/install FPT v 1.02 either by updating Forex Fusion when prompted and then running the new FPT 1.02 installer, or going to ForexProToolkit.com and logging in and downloading V 1.02 installer. If you **have** FPT v 1.02 or higher you are all set

Webinar training for Elite Platinum Edition can be seen here in case your replay link in your email does not work or is missing and remember to whitelist all email from admin@forexfusion.com and support@forexfusion.com and billing@forexfusion.com in your email program – check spam folder if you are missing any expected emails

SPECIAL NOTE REGARDING UPDATES:

When you get a notice regarding an available update, click “Update”. If you click “uninstall”, thats fine if you uninstall it, but then after that you will need to manually locate your existing cloud-installer exe and manually run that again to re-install. You should have saved that cloud installer to a safe place on your hard drive, or you can also download it again by logging into your account on the forexfusion.com web site and looking at the “my downloads” area.

Once you click “update”, if you get an error during the installation that you cannot continue because a file is already in use, make sure your existing MT4s are closed and click “retry”. This nearly always solves the issue and updating will proceed.

Do not click “Next” until all installation procedures are complete – you will get an “all complete” message in the text dialog window.

Remember that after ANY update, if you have saved custom templates for your own use, you should re-set them up and save them again, because the .set files and/or templates shipped with FF may have been also updated. Prior to any update, it is advisable to save a .set file for all template elements, that way you can easily re-add them and “rebuild” your new customized template after an update if necessary (most especially your FPT .set file) – MOST IMPORTANTLY AFTER AN UPDATE – If you use any of our newly-supplied templates or are looking to “rebuild a new custom template using a newly supplied base on from us, be sure and customize your BROKER Proxy Tz CLOCK line item in the “multi-info” indicator settings, and the GMT Offset in Blahtec (and double check the session times) and the “time offset” line items in the dashboard indicator and the small spec V1/v2 indicators. THESE ITEMS ARE ALWAYS SPECIFIC TO YOUR BROKER AND THEREFORE NEED TO BE CHECKED AFTER EACH UPDATE IN ANY NEW SET/TEMPLATE YOU USE IF YOU ARE USING A NEW ONE WE JUST SENT IN THE UPDATE. At a minimum, make a note somewhere safe of these values, this way you can always adjust the broker proxy Tz city / gmt offset / time offset (and broker prefix/suffix)  manually at any point if needed.

If you encounter any problems running Forex Fusion at all, remember that you can always go into your windows applications add/remove programs and manually remove Forex Fusion, then locate your cloud setup file and re-run it to re-install.

Before we get into Forex Fusion specific installation, lets touch on Metatrader 4 installation:

Here is a great primer on exactly how to install multiple instances of MT4 using your single broker setup file, it is easy to do:

Best Way to Install Many MT4s on the Same Computer [or VPS]

We strongly urge you to run Forex Fusion trade templates on charts by itself – meaning no other indicators or EAs or scripts running on that particular instance of MT4, and as few charts as possible open at any one time. This is because Forex Fusion can be resource intensive, and if you have only a VPS, for example, you will not have resources (memory, processor, network, hard drive)  to run much more on a single MT4 instance than a few Forex Fusion charts at one time (try to keep to under 3-4 open at once).  Of course if you have a powerful rig with multiple monitors and a beastly set up, then have at it and do as you will. Just a warning here because our support is constantly fielding call regarding MT4 sluggishness and crashes, thinking its somehow Forex Fusion indicators.  It is NOT.  But be prepared to upgrade hardware if you need to run many charts at the same time. If you do install multiple instances of MT4, be sure and follow the complete Forex Fusion installation steps on each MT4 instance.

ALSO, as you will see below we suggest running any dashboards on their OWN instance of MT4. Just run the dash on a single chart, any pair any timeframe. Maximize the window. If you have a multi-monitor setup leave one screen for that dashboard. If not, refer to it often and set the alerts.

As a final performance note: we suggest running Forex Fusion on an MT4 on a local PC if possible. FF runs fine on a VPS, but in any manual trading on a VPS, there is always some element of lag when manually interacting with chart elements (opening/closing, moving lines, etc). This does not affect the performance of the software, but can make the user feel like the software is performing slowly, when in fact what is being experienced is the lag of manual trading interaction via a remote PC/VPS. Again, the lag is minimal and should not affect trading in any way, but if smoother interaction is your goal in manual trading, we suggest using a local PC. If you need a local dedicated PC, please check the “resources” list in the members area for our suggested hardware vendors for a trading PC and/or monitors

Installation Notes:

If you receive any “crash” windows or messages, be sure and check in both the dashboard and the standalone smallspecsentiment_V2 indicator input settings that both the server clock offset (see below) and symbol suffix or prefix for your broker are accurately set and resave the template or set file with your personal settings, and just restart mt4.

  • Download and unzip the contents of the Elite Platinum Edition .zip file to any safe storage location on your PC.
  • Read the contents of the README.TXT file and follow the instructions.
  • Run the Elite Platinum cloud setup .exe
  • Log in to the Forex Fusion website and navigate to the Members Area. On your local PC, navigate to the /Program Files (X86) folder and find the folder for Forex Fusion Elite Platinum Edition. In it, click to launch the showmyCID.exe application – a CID is a unique identifier number that identifies an entire PC or device or VPS. You may run Forex Fusion on up to 3 simultaneous devices (for example a desktop home PC, a laptop, and an office PC), so you may be using up to 3 CIDs.
  • Click the “licensing” link HERE or  in the members area and follow the instructions there to make sure the locked components of Forex Fusion are licensed.If you are using a “Test Drive”, your expiration date will be set to begin from the date of your first CID entry.
  • At any point after licensing has been completed, you may open any chart in MT4, the time frame you wish to trade on is a matter of preference but for daytrading we suggest M5. Apply the “FOREX_FUSION_ELITE_PLATINUM_EDITION” template to any chart.
  • Go to http://forexfusion.com/FPT and sign up as a Forex Pro Toolkit subscriber, you will be immediately assigned a trial license good for 2 weeks. If you have purchased full Forex Fusion product (not the Test Drive) , your lifetime license for FPT was included in your purchase and allow for up to 48 hours for the vendor to upgrade your license if you are beyond the FPT trial expiration. You will receive an email from Forex Pro Toolkit directly with licensing credentials.  Feel free to watch Forex Pro Toolkit tutorial videos and learn about its powerful options and features on the FPT site. Be sure and enter your MT4 account numbers on the site in your member area there (up to 5 accounts are allowed simultaneously).
  • In your mt4(s) that have Forex Fusion installed, open an m5 chart and apply the “FOREX_FUSION_ELITE_PLATINUM_EDITION” template. Drag and drop or click “attach” on the “Forex Pro Toolkit” EA onto this chart. Click “Load” and load the supplied “FPT Base” preset file. Edit the input settings to adjust for any personal preferences in FPT vs the defaults – starting with the defaults is usually fine but we suggest doing this on a demo account first so that if any adjustments or errors or things you wish to change re the settings you arent risking live money. When you have the chart looking like you want with all loaded, we suggest you then SAVE the new chart as a new personal template, and then just apply THIS new template whenever you open a chart to trade on. Remember to run the FPT application (which should be in your “programs” list, you may wish to create a shortcut to launch it from desktop or menu bar) to be able to see the floating order entry bar and use it to control FPT functions. ALWAYS remember that after an auto update, it is wise to re-setup your personal template, as the update may have contained changed settings to the existing “FOREX_FUSION_ELITE_PLATINUM_EDITION” template – this is not mandatory but it is strongly encouraged.
  • In your MT4 along the top row of menu tabs, open tools–>options–>charts and set “max bars in history” and “max bars on chart” to 5000.  In the “expert advisors” tab check “allow DLL imports”
  • Close and restart your MT4.
  • you will need to know what the “GMT Offset” is for your broker server clock (on each broker you will run FF on) – most common is GMT +2. If you dont know, ask your broker or check here: http://www.thetimenow.com/gmt/greenwich_mean_time change time on that page to 24 hour format and you will see current time GMT. To figure your broker server clock GMT offset, just look at the “market watch” clock in your broker MT4. The difference between GMT and what your broker clock says is your GMT offset – which you will need in setting up forex fusion, so jot it down
  • Note that your dashboard has connection timestamps at the top of each column, so if you feel like your Forex Fusion installation  is not receiving updated server data to the dashboard, just check the column header timestamps, they show last update in your local PC clock time, if it has been more than 5 minutes in any column except S/D, you have an issue (also excepting times of market being closed and daily rollover)
  • Review the section below regarding any recent changes, updates, or corrections, and notes about input settings that may need attention. Aside from the items mentioned below, you may leave input settings at default values or adjust as you wish, some experimentation can be helpful for you to find a “sweet spot” that feels right for your trading style. At this point software installation is complete and you may refer to the rules and other documentation and make use of the website collaboration in order to actually begin trading using Forex Fusion.
  • The following 2 components are both optional 3rd part components. If you choose not to purchase them, the Forex Fusion software will still function correctly but without those elements in your trading window.
  • Install “Blahtec Daily Ranges” indicator by following this link, purchasing and installing the blahtec indicator in your MT4 (you have to create an account on MQL5.com first and then attach the account to each MT4 platform you wish to run Blahtec/Forex Fusion on in the MT4 Tools–>options–>community)  Note that you do need to purchase Blahtec with this link, but your Forex Fusion purchase has already been discounted to a sale price by reducing the price by the amount of Blahtec. The configuration for the indicator in order to be used correctly with Forex Fusion are encapsulated within your template, but you still may need to adjust the settings as noted below, and also make sure the “GMT offset” is correct for your broker.
  • Click the “purchase” button below to purchase RW Tick Chart.  After purchase, the will email to you the indicator, documentation, and a user/password license. Using a tick chart is an option but powerful aspect of Forex Fusion, and your Forex Fusion purchase price reflected a sales discount based on taking into account your purchasing the RW Tickchart indicator below (you get a discounted wholesale price and we make no profit).

  • Review the section below regarding any recent changes, updates, or corrections, and notes about input settings that may need attention. Aside from the items mentioned below, you may leave input settings at default values or adjust as you wish, some experimentation can be helpful for you to find a “sweet spot” that feels right for your trading style. At this point software installation is complete and you may refer to the rules and other documentation and make use of the website collaboration in order to actually begin trading using Forex Fusion.

Errata, Corrections, Updates:

** In the Small Speculator Indicator (V1 or V2 on chart), be sure and observe the extreme levels that suggest reversals. These can be set by you, the user, with experimentation, and are set at the server level by Forex Fusion for V2 (Elite Platinum) individually by pair. The default extreme level is 2.5/-2.5 but this can vary widely by pair based on volatility.

** Additional note on using “Blahtec Ranges”: A good method of using “session ranges” to select profit targets is to set a TP of 1/2 the SESSION range IF you are trading in a session during which there is high or medium impact news or trading activity for at least one currency in the pair (and preferably both). If trading a session when there is no news release for either currency and/or a slow period such as most Mondays and holidays, we suggest a more conservative TP of 1/3 the session range to be conservative, there is no need to be greedy. Caveat to this is that you will always ant to use a SL of at least 20 pips, and therefore want to perhaps not “bother” with trades that might have less than a 20 pip profit target.

2 further points to consider:

1) Great reversals happen near the S/R 0.5 and S/R 1 lines. If prices reach S/R 2 that is very often a great reversal spot. You will seldom see an S/R 3 line hit unless there is a massive news item that hits.

2) Also look at the ADR and ASR. Any time the ASR or ADR are nearly (90%+) reached in the FIRST HOUR of a session, that is very often a great place to look for a reversal. ALWAYS LOOK FOR A CONFLUENCE of this with a whole number level and/or one of the pivot S/R levels – if you can get a confluence of whole #, pivot level, ADR/ASR near maxing out, and a cycle timer S/R line, that is a huge confluence area to work with and very often a great spot for an entry or exit.

** note on broker server clock adjustment for Blahtec Ranges (including the specific time ranges for the individual sessions) and Small Speculator Positions V1 or V2 and Dashboard “small Speculator Positions” time offset:

make sure and adjust the settings for these indicators for your broker server clock time. The default templates are all pre-set up for server offset of GMT +2, which is the most common MT4 broker server clock. Note that if/when the broker server clock adjusts during the year for various daylight savings adjustments, you may have to adjust the settings again accordingly in the above referenced locations.

SPECIAL: Small speculator positions dashboard input setting AND small speulator positions final and V2 stand alone on-chart  indicator input setting for “time offset” is in MINUTES.  calculate the proper value to input in “time offset” as follows: CHECK THE MEMBERS AREA OF THE FOREX FUSION WEBSITE TO SEE THE  CURRENT FOREX FUSION BROKER SERVER CLOCK OFFSET.  THE “SMALL SPECULATOR” POSITIONS INDICATORS HAVE AN INPUT SETTING NAMED “TIME  OFFSET“, AND THIS REFERS TO THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR OWN BROKERS SERVER CLOCK AND THE FOREX FUSION BROKER SERVER CLOCK. THE VALUE TO USE FOR “TIME OFFSET” IS THE AMOUNT OF MINUTES YOU NEED TO MOVE FROM YOUR OWN BROKER SERVER CLOCK TO BECOME ALIGNED WITH THE FOREX FUSION BROKER SERVER CLOCK. AS AN EXAMPLE, IF YOUR BROKER SERVER CLOCK IS RUNNING AT GMT +3, AND THE FOREX FUSION BROKER CLOCK AS STATED ON THE MEMBERS AREA IS SET TO +2, THEN THE VALUE FOR “TIME OFFSET” = -60 (BECAUSE IT IS IN MINUTES, AND THE DIFFERENCE IN OUR EXAMPLE IS -1 HOUR, OR 60 MINUTES). ALWAYS START WITH YOUR OWN BROKER SERVER OFFSET AND THEN CALCULATE HOW MANY MINUTES YOU NEED TO ADD OR SUBTRACT TO EQUAL OR BE THE SAME AS (SYNCHRONIZED WITH) THE FOREX FUSION BROKER CLOCK. ANOTHER EXAMPLE, FOREX FUSION BROKER CLOCK = GMT +3 AS SHOWN IN THE MEMBERS AREA, YOUR BROKER SERVER CLOCK = GMT . THE “TIME OFFSET” VALUE TO USE WOULD BE 180 ( BECAUSE YOU WOULD NEED TO “ADD” 180 MINUTES TO “MATCH” THE FOREX FUSION MASTER SERVER CLOCK). A FINAL EXAMPLE, AND THE MOST COMMON CASE: FOREX FUSION MASTER BROKER SERVER CLOCK = GMT +2, YOUR OWN BROKER SERVER CLOCK = GMT +2. VALUE TO USE IN “TIME OFFSET” INPUT = 0. FINAL THING TO NOTE IS THAT FOREX FUSION BROKER CLOCK SHOULD VERY SELDOM CHANGE AND PROBABLY FINE TO JUST CHECK IT WEEKLY OR MONTHLY IN THE MEMBERS AREA. IF IT CHANGES, WE WILL ALSO POST A MEMO IN THE FORUM.

** Multi-Info Setup instructions:

Multi-Info Server Setting for Session Breaks

use the following information to determine proper settings in the “MultiInfo” indicator so that the session vertical line dividers display correctly for your MT4 server time zone – for Forex Fusion members using “Forex Pro Toolkit” we suggest setting multi-info up as follows also but then setting “show_access_panel” and “show_clock_in_panel” to false as Forex Pro Toolkit onscreen data will cover it up anyway.:

Broker time is required by the code that features PivotsTz and vLines.  When data feed
is live the broker time is available.  When data feed is not live it is not available.
The purpose of this “Preface” section is to find and input the Clock location that has
the same time as the broker server.  Then, even without live data feed we will still
have the equivalent of the broker server time to work with, generated by the Clock, and
the PivotsTz and vLines will always display properly.  Perform the following steps.

When there is live data feed use the Clock to find the Clock time zone location matching
the broker server time.  Change “Clock_Normal_vs_Find_Server” to “false”.  The Clock will
display “B” (for broker server) at the time zone location matching the broker server time.
You can populate the Clock with all labels to find “B” (see Clock instructions below).
Chances are the labels needed are already displayed.  If “B” shows in the “London” label
things are not so clear because London time is GMT during the non-DST time of the year
(winter in northern hemisphere).  During that time we can not tell from the Clock if the
broker server is on GMT or on London time all year.  Call your broker to find out.

You now have the Clock Proxy Server TZ location, either from the Clock or your broker.
Type this location name, exactly as it appears in the Clock, into the Preface input called
“Clock_Proxy_Server_Tz_Location”.  Now change “Clock_Normal_vs_Find_Server_Tz” back to
“true” for normal operation.  You have successfully completed the steps to assure the
correct and 24/7 display of PivotsTz and market vLines.  This indicator adjusts for DST
changeovers when they occur twice yearly, which happens at different times at different
places.  This is fully automated.  No adjustments for DST are required by the user.

The default “Clock_Proxy_Server_Tz_Location” is “Helsinki” because it is the most popular
time zone used for broker servers.  If this is not the time zone your broker server uses,
then PivotsTz and vLines will display incorrectly.  So, be sure you follow the steps
above to confirm this default selection is correct, and if not then to find and input
the correct Clock Proxy Server TZ location.  Without an input this indicator will not
function.  Be sure that “Clock_Normal_vs_Find_Server” is “false” only when searching for
the Clock Proxy Server TZ location.  It must be “true” for normal indicator operation.

Preview of the Displayed Access Panel and Other Indicator Features-
This indicator places an Access Panel in the upper left corner of the chart, consisting of
a Market Panel and a Clock Panel.  For proper display chart/Properites/Common/Show OHLC should
be unchecked.
1. The Market Panel:
The Market Panel can be turned on/off.  When it is turned on it displays the items
listed below, and you can also show the Clock Panel when the Market Panel is on:
(1) Symbol & Period:  The symbol for the currency pair and the chart TF.
(2) Spread: The difference (cost to trade) between the Ask and the Bid price.
(3) Ranges: The weekly and daily average ranges.
(4) Swaps:  The long and the short swap rates.
(5) Candle: The time remaining for the chart current TF bar.
(6) Price:  The bid price of either currency or non-currency items.  For currencies,
the last (fractional) digit can be set to appear smaller than the other digits.
The price changes color when the last full size digit reverses.
(7) The Logo.
2. The Clock Panel:
When the Market Panel is on the Clock Panel can be turned on/off.  It displays time and
location for seven different time zones that can be selected out of a list of time zones
available.  It is also used during a time of live feed to determine the difference
between the broker server time and GMT, which is an input that must be entered manually
in the “Preface” section of the External Inputs.  If a time zone displayed happens to
coincide with the broker server time, your local time, GMT, or the time zone selected
for the calculation of pivots (if pivots are displayed), an extension to the label will
include the designators: “B”, “L”, “G” and “P” so you do not have to waste lines to also
separately display the Broker, Local and GMT time zones.

In addition to the two panel sections, this multi-function indicator provides the following
services, which are listed here, and more fully described below:
1. A special Ask line and a special Bid line.
2. A background of level lines dividing the distance between whole numbers into quarters.
3. Natural fibonacci numbers applied to the previous day range as well as above and below.
4. Daily or Fibonacci pivots, including mid-pivot lines.
5. Average Range H/L lines for the week and day.
6. Day Separators.
7. Vertical lines at the open of the Asian, Frankfurt, London and New York forex markets,
and at the close of the London market.

1. Special Ask and Bid Lines –
You can select to place your own Ask and Bid Ray lines on the chart, which you can vary in
thickness and color.  The lines end just beyond the current candle.  The Bid line terminates
with a Bid Dot that can be sized and that changes color(example: green/red) as the bid price
changes(up/dn).  To display only your own Ask/Bid Ray lines, right click on the chart and
select Chart Properties/Colors.  Make sure the Grid color = “None”, otherwise the MT4 bid
line is going to be beneath your own, and will be visible from the end of your line to the
chart edge.  The special Ask and Bid lines can be subordinated to appear below other chart
artifacts, such as the candles and the SonicR Dragon-Trend.  You can set the Ask line to not
show above a chosen chart TF.  By default, the Ask line is set to not show above the M5 TF.
There are other options.  Read the External Inputs.

2. Background Level Lines –
This indicator places level lines on your chart at key levels between whole numbers (00, 25,
50, 75 and 00 again).  The number of “sets” of these Whole, Half, and Quarter lines is fixed
by hard code for each TF chart.  The lines can individually be of any available color, style
and width.  With Levels “On”, the half and quarter levels can be turned On/Off individually.
The whole, half and quarter levels also have separate “Max_TF” settings, which you can set so
the less significant Levels automatically cease to be displayed as you go up in chart TF.
The span between the Levels is 25 pips.  For some currency pairs and other traded instruments
this might mean the Levels lines are too close together or too far apart.  To adjust spacing
of the Level lines use “__Incr_Decr_Levels_Density” which by default is “0”.  A change to
“1” will space the lines 50 pips apart.  A change to “2” will space the lines 75 pips apart.
A change to “3” will space the lines 100 pips apart, etc.  A change to “-1” will space lines
12.5 pips apart.  A change to “-2” will space lines 6.25 pips apart, etc. With the variety
of instruments available to trade, and with the manner in which the market has fixed their
pricing, there is no simple code that will automatically yield a better placement of lines.

3. Natural Fibos –
Fibonacci numbers are applied to the internal range of the previous day, as well as beyond,
both above and below that range.  The “yHI” and “yLO” lines are displayed from the start of
the previous day session.  The other lines are displayed for just the current day session.
An option called “__Use_Tz_Filter” (default is “false”) diverts calculations to the time
zone shift coding in this indicator to find the correct start of the previous session
following partial days and holidays, which is the only time this option might be needed.
A. These key fibonacci levels are applied to the internal range:
yLO, 23.6, 38.2, 50.0, 61.8, 76.4 and yHI.
B. These levels are applied beyond this range, both above and below:
23.6, 38.2, 50.0, 61.8, 76.4, 100.0, 161.8, 261.8, 423.6 and 638.2.

4. Daily and Fibonacci Pivots –
A. Main Pivot Line
You can select to display the main pivot (PVT) for the day.  It can be constructed
using two ines.  One can be a wide background line of a highlighting color and the
other can be a narrow top line of a darker color (Examples: Yellow & Gray respectively).
B. Support & Resistance Lines-
You can select to display the support and resistance pivot lines (SR) using either the
Daily or Fibonacci formulas.  The Fibonacci displays five levels.  Normally, the Daily
displays only three levels, but is extended to include five levels.
C. Broker or Time Zone Shifted Pivots
You can display your broker server pivots, or you can select to display pivots based
on a different time zone (PivotsTz).  New coding fully automates the complexities of
PivotsTz, such as timing the hour shift for DST twice yearly, depending on when your
broker does that.  Your choice to use PivotsTz requires only three simple inputs-
I.   “__PivotsTz_On”
Set this equal to “true”.  If “false”, then broker server pivots are displayed.
II.  “____Use_Preferred_Offset”
Set to “true” if you wish pivots displayed to be based on the Frankfurt time zone.
if set to “false” the input for “____Alternative_GMT_Offset” will be used.
III. “____Alternative_GMT_Offset”
This is your alternative choice of time zone location relative to GMT in +/- hours
(examples: for GMT use “0”, for one time zone east of GMT use “1”, and for four
time zones west of GMT use “-4”).
When pivots are displayed, “P” will show in the appropriate Clock label matching the
time zone the pivots are based on.  Realize that by choosing PivotsTz, when the next
PivotsTz day occurs during the broker server day, the PivotsTz lines will suddenly
change.   PivotsTz will display either “^”, “<“, or “>” in the labels for the lines.
By default, PivotsTz are set to the preferred Frankfurt time zone and will display “^”
in the labels.  If you select a PivotsTZ time zone less than the default “<” appears in the labels.  If you select a PivotsTZ time zone greater than the default “>” appears
in the labels.  Broker pivots display nothing extra in the labels.

5. Range High/Low Lines for the Day and Week –
You can display two horizontal lines, one for the computed range high target, and one for
the computed range low target. The range is based on the averaging period you select
(defaults: day=15, week=13).  The special range averaging process for the Day range lines
skips any brief Sunday sessions of some brokers, which would drag the average down.  The
Week range lines use the standard ATR formula since brief Sunday sessions do not much affect
the results.
A. Two conditions determine where range lines appear….
1. Condition #1 – the Day/Week range has not exceeded the computed average range.
* The RDH/RWH line is the computed average range distance above the session Low.
* The RDL/RWL line is the computed average range distance below the session high.
* The lines will move as new highs/lows are achieved during the session.
* This display shows how far price can move in either direction before exceeding
the computed average range.
2. Condition #2 – the Day/Week range has exceeded the computed average range.
* If price swings during the day/week TF cause the difference between the high and
the low to equal the computed range, the range lines lock into place.
* This display will clearly show any subsequent breakout of the range.
B. The purpose of the range lines is to provide a perspective on how far PA might move
during the trading day or week.  This can be of some guidance in selecting where to
exit a trade.  A swing trader might pay more attention to the RWH/RWL lines, and hold
a trade into oncoming days.  However, a day trader looking for quick profits and
limited exposure to market price swings might pay more attention to the RDH/RDL lines.
C. The Day range lines are based on the broker’s server trading day, but can be based
on a trading day of a different time zone, just as are the pivots.  By default, the
input “__RangeTZ_on” is set to “true” for this function.  The time zone used for the
RangeTZ function is always the same one selected for the PivotsTZ function.  The
day RangeTZ lines can be displayed even if PivotsTZ lines are not displayed.

6. Day Separators –
You can apply day separators to your chart with this option.  It lets you select color
and line styles.  You can elect to show separators just for today and/or for any number
of previous days.

7. Vertical Time Lines –
You can select to display vertical time lines for the London Open, New York Open, and the
London Close, with the option to also show the Asian/Sydney Open and the Frankfurt Open.
New coding in this release properly places these vLines without any special inputs required
from the user because it determines all year around the GMT offsets of the broker server,
Sydney, Frankfurt, London and NYC.  And the coding takes into account any changes at these
locations due to DST/nonDST changeovers when they are implemented, even if at different times
at each location.  This information is required to always have the vLines displayed on your
broker server chart at the places representing the proper local times in both London and NYC.
Separate External Inputs exist for control of the vLines for the Asian Open and the Frankfurt
Open.  Broker servers on GMT have very short partial days when the market opens for the week
such that maybe only the “Ao” line appears, providing little in the way of time perspective.
By using the External Inputs for “Ao” for both the current and the previous sessions you can
display the “Ao” from the previous Friday to create the missing perspective.

Addtitional Remarks On Displaying Horizontal Lines and Labels –
The horizontal line groups can be displayed differently, using display numbers “1” and “2” in
the section “Horizontal Lines Position Settings:”  If the selection number is outside the 1-2
range it will default to “2”.  The line groups are: Levels, PVT (central pivot), SRM (support,
resistance and mid-pivots), and Range H/L lines for DAY/WK.
“1” – Fullscreen: draws the lines across the chart and positions labels mid-chart.
“2” – Session: draws the lines only thru the current session and positions labels at
the start of current session until that moves off-chart.  Then labels are
positioned mid-chart.
“3” – This is not a selectable option, but it is hard coded so that if the lines are set
to display for the current session and the chart is switched to the DAY TF or higher,
the lines will display 7 TFs to the right from the current candle.

Additional Remarks on Displaying Horizontal Lines and vLines for Brokers at GMT –
Note that brokers at GMT will have a very short “extra” trading day, a brief two hours on
Sunday (from 5pm EST to 7pm EST).  During this time, horizontal lines selected to display
per “2”, will appear as they were on the previous Friday and remain at the levels for Friday
until the short Sunday period ends.  The short Sunday period is actually the last two hours
of the Friday trading day.  The same goes for vLines.  They will appear during the short
Sunday period as they were on the previous Friday.
