The average true range (ATR) is a technical analysis indicator that measures market volatility . The ATR indicator is easy to use and gives an accurate reading about an ongoing trend that very effective.

I. Signals are used for entry

- Entry your long position (buy) when price crosses above the ATR trailing stop line.
- Entry your short position (sell) when price crosses below the ATR trailing stop line.

II. ATR Trailing Stops Setup

- The ATR period is used to adjust the sensitivity of the ATR trailing stop line. With larger period, the ATR will "smoother" but will signal slower than the price.
- ATR multiplier is a multiple of ATR trailing stop.
- If you want to backtest with trailing take profit, you can tick the box “test with trailing?”. It will affect 2 parameters which are: Trailing point and trailing offset. Where: Trailing Point is the trigger point, the distance from the entry price. Trailing Offset is the take-profit price, which is the distance from the Trailing Point.
