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.
2. The yellow dot will only appear if a new higher low has formed...
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 will help you figure out what stop loss settings work best for you. Some people might prefer ATR 14 * 0.5 for shorter timeframes, some might prefer more extreme settings such as ATR 30 * 2 to not get stopped out as often.
I publish the code again in case someone is interested in learning. I am not an expert, I learned from others who published their scripts and for this reason I do the same.
If someone tries to sell you a script it is because they do not make money with it in trading and they need to sell it to earn something.
It is a simple combination algorithm of 3 EMA with...
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 is a simple script to quickly see changes in % in each candle.
In blue open/close variation. In red Histogram with range between high and low.
This helps me understand very quickly what's the typical change in % for a specific timeframe/pair, so I can fine tune my Stop Losses and Take Profits.
This is based on the Average True Range Trailing Stops Strategy by Sylvain Vervoort, coded on TV HPotter. I have added Bands to see potential short and long stop loss zones before the indicator signals to switch itself, also changed color on the main Trailing Stop based on whether it is short or long, added increased stop loss hunt protection by combining with my...
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...
