Hi, Thank you for posting this. I am very new to this concept and wish to ask what may be a stupid question. Here goes anyway:

Example: I have a max risk goal of not to lose more than 2% on any given trade.

1.) How would I set the inputs for this?

I have read some stuff on what is called an Average True Range Dynamic Stop.

2.) Is your script an ATR Dynamic Stop or something else?

Thanks

Hi, codetrader
1) I can`t recomendet to you anything. I don`t use this script, I just coding it from magazine Stocks & Commodities Jun 2009. Sorry.

2) This script recalculated on the realtime and make changes in the stoploss level dynamically.

Hi thanks for the script, it's very useful!

Is it possible to use it with "//@version=2" parameter?

best regards, Luca

Never mind, I have adapted my script, now it works without the "//@version=2".

Thanks again for sharing the script, Luca
