An ATR (Average True Range) can be used to position a trailing stop
In this script, the true range of today is calculated based on the low of yesterday in order to be more stable.
It only goes up, as a trailing stop should do.
It only goes down when the trailing stop is reached by the price.
The calculation of this ATR is based on the low of yesterday in order to not change continuously during the day.
You can use this indicator to create a trailing stop taking into account volatility on the nATRPeriod previous days.
It also always go up as a trailing stop should. It only goes down the price reaches the trailing stop.
This is a redesign of the built-in Parabolic SAR indicator. I added a proper input system, an option to highlight initial points for both lines and an option to choose points width. So, customize it as you want.

This is a redesign of the SuperTrend indicator. It removes stupid transitions between SuperTrend states and highlights initial points for both lines.
SuperTrend is a moving stop and reversal line based on the volatility (ATR).

This script is designed for those who want to use BitMex's trailing stop. It's not meant to be used as entry exits, but rather to get an idea of how wide the trailing stop needs to be. I suggest you backtest with different values. The script can also be integrated into an existing strategy which does give entry/exits to act as its stop loss.
This is an updated version of my previous stop loss script.
I've added a double EMA line and modified the stop as below;
In an uptrend....
1. a yellow dot will appear once it's time to move your stop. The yellow dot will display at the level of the stop loss. Place your stop 1 pip below the dot.

Binque's Stop Loss Indicator is a great way to visualize a trailing stop loss based on a percent from the high. i.e. If the high was $10 of a trading day and your stop loss was set at 5% (percent) then your chart would show a small dot 5% below the high of the day.

Since my exchange doesn't support trailing stop I made a script for it.
It is fully configurable, which means you can set the bars for calculation, the offset and sources for trigger and calculation.
The original purpose for me was to send a command to my bot. If you like it please comment and check out my other scripts.
This script is designed to aid in back-testing and trade execution.
