This script creates a stop loss level and then moves it up in 5% increments as prices increase.
Basically, it checks to see if the lowest low of the last 7 days is above a certain level. If yes, it sets the stop at that level. It then checks for the next highest level and keeps going until the price is not above a level. Those variables are then set to the level...
This indicator plots 2 sets of dots (and lines) based on your chosen ATR multiplier (Average True Range).
Generally, when trading on the daily timeframe a good rule of thumb is to use the ATR * 1.5 (the default setting of this indicator).
I created this indicator to quickly test other indicators but I also find it helpful in live trading.
How to use this...
This indicator takes the average of a series of ATR to calculate what I would consider an optimum stop loss placement represented in percentage (read below for full overview).
While the data is plotted what is most helpful are the actual numbers presented and for my charts I remove most of the plotting.
This indicator is most helpful on the daily timeframe but...
The top band is ATR added to candle high (with given length and multiplication). The bottom one is analogic.
Created for finding initial stop loss for entry on low timeframes. Use band value at last major high/low to place the stop loss at.
It shows prices with acceptable risk and a reasonable margin for market volatility.
This indicator shares ATR pips and a calculated 1.5 x stop loss calculation.
1st number is ATR.
2nd number is ATR x 1.5 (a typical SL when trading daily time frame).
The plot lines are really not that important- it's the actual numbers.
What I do is uncheck the plot line checkboxes (ATR & SL) so it doesn't show up, that way I can reduce the indicator...
This indicator creates an trend channel based on an EMA/SMA combo and a Parabolc SAR indicator.
Watch for the peaks and the size of the red/green channel for possible trend change.
Can also be used as an Entry/Exit/Stop-Loss setting tool.
This script measures the maximum and average length of upper and lower wicks. While this can be used as a volatility gauge and to see if there is more support or resistance, it's primary use is to not get wicked out on stops, by adding one of these numbers to the the Moving Average or S/R level that one is using for a Stop, plus maybe a few points of buffer.
