The Vortex Oscillator is a technical analysis indicator inspired from J. Welles Wilders directional movement indicator. The oscillator can be used to determine if a security is trending, it can be incorporated into a trend following system or can be used directly to generate buy and sell signals.

The Vortex Oscillator function is called "vortexOsc", it allows you to specify the number of period to use to sum the ATR (Average true range), the difference between the high and previous low and the difference between the low and previous high values. Besides those differences and the average true range, the vortex oscillator uses also the triple and the double exponential moving averages.

The next formula plots the vortex oscillator and uses a different color for each bar depending on the value of the indicator and how it compares to its previous value.
vort = vortexOsc(21);
color=iff(vort>0,iff(vort>Ref(vort, 1), 1, 2),iff(vort>Ref(vort, 1), 3, 4));
Plot(vort, "Vortex Oscillator", colorRed,ChartBar, StyleSymbolNone);
UpdateColor(color == 1, colorGreen);
UpdateColor(color == 2, colorYellow);
UpdateColor(color == 3, colorBlue);
UpdateColor(color == 4, colorRed);

The indicator's bar color is Green if the vortex oscillator is positive and higher than its previous value; Yellow if it is positive and lower than the previous value; Blue if it is negative and higher than the previous value and finally Red if it is negative and lower than the previous value.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
