ATR-Based Trailing Stop Loss
The Logical Trading Indicator V.1 utilizes the Average True Range (ATR) to implement a dynamic trailing stop loss. You can customize the sensitivity of your alerts by adjusting the ATR Multiple and ATR Period settings.
Higher ATR Multiple values create wider stops, while lower values result in tighter stops. This feature ensures that your trades are protected against adverse price movements. For best practice, use higher values on higher timeframes and lower values on lower term timeframes.
The Logical Trading Indicator V.1 includes Bollinger Bands, which can be customized to use either a Simple Moving Average (SMA) or an Exponential Moving Average (EMA) as the basis.
You can adjust the length and standard deviation multiplier of the Bollinger Bands to fine-tune your strategy. The color of the basis line changes to green when price is above and red when price is below the line to represent the trend.
The bands show a range vs a single band that also represents when the price is in overbought and oversold ranges similar to an RSI. These bands also control the take profit signals.
You also have the ability to change the band colors as well as toggle them off, which only affects the view, they are still active which will still fire the take profit signals.
Our indicator offers a momentum filter option that highlights market momentum directly on the candlesticks, identifying periods of bullish, bearish, or consolidation phases. You can enable or disable this filter as needed, providing valuable insights into market conditions.
By default, you will see the candlestick colors represent the momentum direction as green or red, and consolidation periods as white, but the filter on the BUY and SELL signals is not active. The view options and filter can be toggled on and off in the settings.
Buy and Sell Signals
The Logical Trading Indicator V.1 generates buy and sell signals based on a combination of ATR-based filtering, Bollinger Band basis crossover, and optional momentum conditions if selected in the settings. These signals help you make informed decisions about when to enter or exit a trade. You can also enable a consolidation filter to stay out of trades during tight ranges.
Basically a BUY signal fires when the price closes above the basis line, and the price meets or exceeds the ATR multiple from the previous candle length, which is also editable in the settings.
If the momentum filter is engaged, it will not fire BUY signals when in consolidation periods. It works just the opposite for SELL signals.
Take Profit Signals
We've integrated a Take Profit feature that helps you identify points to exit your trades with profits. The indicator marks Long Take Profit when prices close below the upper zone line of the Bollinger Bands after the previous candle closes inside the band, suggesting an optimal point to exit a long trade or consider a short position.
Conversely, Short Take Profit signals appear when prices close above the lower zone after the previous candle closes inside of it, indicating the right time to exit a short trade or contemplate a long position.
