First of all let me quote some important points :
• You need stops; a trade without a stop is a gamble.
• You need to know where you’ll put your stop before you enter
• Everybody needs hard stops.
• Whenever you change a stop, you may move it only in the direc-
tion of the trade.
There is a variety of techniques available to traders who like to...
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.
Here you can choose to plot 3 different ATR values in 1 window. I use this indicator to get the values of my stop loss and take profits.
You can change the multiplier value for each ATR Line and the length of the base ATR.
ATR based Triple Stop Loss levels that are plotted on the chart (like moving averages!).
With ATR Levels plotted on the price chart itself, you can better set your volatility based trailing Stop Loss.
Also helps to define the SL when making an entry into a stock.
This indicator is supposed to be used on Daily and Weekly Charts.
For other timeframes...
This indicator is simply based on the 2% rule, you must insert the entry point (the price at what you bought) by clicking the gear on the top left.
If you see the chart different is becouse the default entry is set to 1 and but it fixes if you set the proper entry price.
a little bit about the 2% rule :
Following the 2% Rule will keep any loss in your account to a...
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 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 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.
