Interactive MA Stop Loss [TANHEF]

This indicator is "Interactive." Once added to the chart, you need to click the start point for the moving average stoploss. Dragging it afterward will modify its position.

Why choose this indicator over a traditional Moving Average?

  • To accurately determine that a wick has crossed a moving average, you must examine the moving average's range on that bar (blue area on this indicator) and ensure the wick fully traverses this area.
  • When the price moves away from a moving average, the average also shifts towards the price. This can make it look like the wick crossed the average, even if it didn't.

How is the moving average area calculated?
  • For each bar, the moving average calculation is standard, but when the current bar is involved, its high or low is used instead of the close. For precise results, simply setting the source in a typical moving average calculation to 'Low' or 'High' is not sufficient in calculating the moving average area on a current bar.

Moving Average Options:
  • Simple Moving Average
  • Exponential Moving Average
  • Relative Moving Average
  • Weighted Moving Average
