  1. How do you install the beta firmware. I get a zip file that does not have any .exe file in it.

  2. The pivot-calculator is used to calculate pivot points in order to make the right decision while trading. A pivot point is the price at which the price fluctuation of a currency pair is expected to move into a different direction.
