Liquidations Meter [LuxAlgo]The Liquidation Meter aims to gauge the momentum of the bar, identify the strength of the bulls and bears, and more importantly identify probable exhaustion/reversals by measuring probable liquidations.
🔶 USAGE
This tool includes many features related to the concept of liquidation. The two core ones are the liquidation meter and liquidation price calculator, highlighted below.
🔹 Liquidation Meter
The liquidation meter presents liquidations on the price chart by measuring the highest leverage value of longs and shorts that have been potentially liquidated on the last chart bar, hence allowing traders to:
gauge the momentum of the bar.
identify the strength of the bulls and bears.
identify probable reversal/exhaustion points.
Liquidation of low-leveraged positions can be indicative of exhaustion.
🔹 Liquidation Price Calculator
A liquidation price calculator might come in handy when you need to calculate at what price level your leveraged position in Crypto, Forex, Stocks, or any other asset class gets liquidated to add a protective stop to mitigate risk. Monitoring an open position gets easier if the trader can calculate the total risk in order for them to choose the right amount of margin and leverage.
Liquidation price is the distance from the trader's entry price to the price where trader's leveraged position gets liquidated due to a loss. As the leverage is increased, the distance from trader's entry price to the liquidation price shrinks.
While you have one or several trades open you can quickly check their liquidation levels and determine which one of the trades is closest to their liquidation price.
If you are a day trader that uses leverage and you want to know which trade has the best outlook you can calculate the liquidation price to see which one of the trades looks best.
🔹 Dashboard
The bar statistics option enables measuring and presenting trading activity, volatility, and probable liquidations for the last chart bar.
🔶 DETAILS
It's important to note that liquidation price calculator tool uses a formula to calculate the liquidation price based on the entry price + leverage ratio.
Other factors such as leveraged fees, position size, and other interest payments have been excluded since they are variables that don’t directly affect the level of liquidation of a leveraged position.
The calculator also assumes that traders are using an isolated margin for one single position and does not take into consideration the additional margin they might have in their account.
🔹Liquidation price formula
the liquidation distance in percentage = 100 / leverage ratio
the liquidation distance in price = current asset price x the liquidation distance in percentage
the liquidation price (longs) = current asset price – the liquidation distance in price
the liquidation price (shorts) = current asset price + the liquidation distance in price
or simply
the liquidation price (longs) = entry price * (1 – 1 / leverage ratio)
the liquidation price (shorts) = entry price * (1 + 1 / leverage ratio)
Example:
Let’s say that you are trading a leverage ratio of 1:20. The first step is to calculate the distance to your liquidation point in percentage.
the liquidation distance in percentage = 100 / 20 = 5%
Now you know that your liquidation price is 5% away from your entry price. Let's calculate 5% below and above the entry price of the asset you are currently trading. As an example, we assume that you are trading bitcoin which is currently priced at $35000.
the liquidation distance in price = $35000 x 0.05 = $1750
Finally, calculate liquidation prices.
the liquidation price (longs) = $35000 – $1750 = $33250
the liquidation price (short) = $35000 + $1750 = $36750
In this example, short liquidation price is $36750 and long liquidation price is $33250.
🔹How leverage ratio affects the liquidation price
The entry price is the starting point of the calculation and it is from here that the liquidation price is calculated, where the leverage ratio has a direct impact on the liquidation price since the more you borrow the less “wiggle-room” your trade has.
An increase in leverage will subsequently reduce the distance to full liquidation. On the contrary, choosing a lower leverage ratio will give the position more room to move on.

Lines and Table for risk managementABOUT THIS INDICATOR
This is a simple indicator that can help you manage the risk when you are trading, and especially if you are leverage trading. The indicator can also be used to help visualize and to find trades within a suitable or predefined trading range.
This script calculates and draws six “profit and risk lines” (levels) that show the change in percentage from the current price. The values are also shown in a table, to help you get a quick overview of risk before you trade.
ABOUT THE LINES/VALUES
This indicator draws seven percentage-lines, where the dotted line in the middle represents the current price. The other three lines on top of and below the middle line shows the different levels of change in percentage from current price (dotted line). The values are also shown in a table.
DEFAULT VALUES AND SETTINGS
By default the indicator draw lines 0.5%, 1.0%, and 1.5% from current price (step size = 0.5).
The default setting for leverage in this indicator = 1 (i.e. no leverage).
The line closest to dotted line (current price) is calculated by step size (%) * leverage (x) = % from price.
Pay attention to the %-values in the table, they represent the distance from the current price (dotted line) to where the lines are drawn.
* Be aware! If you change the leverage, the distance from the closest lines to the dotted line showing the current price increase.
SETTINGS
1. Leverage: set the leverage for what you are planning to trade on (1 = no leverage, 2 = 2 x leverage, 5 = 5 x leverage...).
2. Stepsize is used to set the distance between the lines and price.
EXAMPLES WITH DIFFERENT SETTINGS
1) Leverage = 1 (no leverage, default setting) and step size 0.5 (%). Lines plotted at (0.5%, 1%, 1.5%, and –0.5%, –1%, –1,5%) from the current price.
2) Leverage = 3 and stepsize 0.5(%). Lines plotted at (1.5%, 3.0%, 4.5%, and –1.5%, –3.0%, –4.5%) from the current price.
3) Leverage = 3 and stepsize 1(%). Lines plotted at (3%, 6%, 9%, and –3%, –6%, –9%) from the current price.
The distance to the nearest line from the current price is always calculated by the formula: Leverage * step size (%) = % to the nearest line from the current price.

Leverage and contracts toolThis script is more like a tool than an indicator.
The script determinates the amount of contracts and the leverage needed to do one trade.
You must specify the following parameters:
Entry price
Stop Loss price
Stop Loss risk. It's the capital that you will loss if the price hit the SL price.
Operation equity. It's the whole capital involved in the operation.
No matter what side of operation is, it works in both ways (short and long).
To determine the levels could be useful use the short-long position tool of TradingView.

Elevated Leverage index System - ELiSELEVATED LEVERAGE index SYSTEM (ELiS) tries to solve the problem of adjusting meaningful leverage in futures and margin trading.
The biggest problem for traders is adjusting the leverage level manually.
Concerning about the volatilities it's very hard to set a meaningful leverage level.
ELiS includes 4 different volatility component which are:
1- nATR: Normalized Average True Range which is actually ATR/price to stabilize ATR's value differences when price changes are high on long term periods.
2- Standard Deviation
3- Kairi based nATR
4- Bollinger %B
which are scaled from 0 to 100 and takes different averages with different combinations & ratios and combines them as an index.
This index calculates an average volatility to set the true leverage level when trading futures especially in Crypto and FX markets.
There are 5 risk levels of "GEARS" like on automobiles to set the max leverage for risk management.
Gear 1 - CONSERVATIVE: max leverage level can be 20 for swing traders and beginners
Gear 2 - STANDARD: max leverage level can be 25 (default) for day traders
Gear 3 - AVERAGE: max leverage level can be 33 for day traders
Gear 4 - RISKY: max leverage level can be 50 for scalpers
Gear 5 - AGRESSIVE: max leverage level can be 100 for advanced scalpers
default length for ATR, Standard Deviation and %B are all 50
Simply:
When markets aren't volatile: ELiS indicateshigher leverage values to maximize profits.
When markets are volatile enough: ELiS indicates lower values to reduce risk level.
hope you all enjoy ELiS on profitable trades.
