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.
Profit targets are those scenarios where the system expects to be greater than the actual return at the end of the transaction: they may be short-term benefits, such as a favorable price shock model.
In short-term transactions, profit objectives are essential. Price fluctuations make any favorable event likely to turn around in an instant. Moreover,...
A Donchian Channel with additional zones at places where its range is smaller than a set amount of atr. Thus it kind of combines with Keltner Channel qualities. Purpose is to set a stop loss wide enough to avoid shaking out of a position. The example chart shows a Philips day chart, where I opened position on 16 juli at 37,50 and set the stop loss at low border...
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...
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...
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...
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.
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...
A tool to calculate the average price and position size.
The "Risk Amount" input means the amount of dollars you lose if the trade gets stopped out (it should be based on a small percentage of your account).
- If you use the weights to calculate an average price, make sure it adds up to 100% in total or you will get a weird number.
- Keep an eye on the...
Plots crosses above and below the current price giving you the ability to quickly set your stop loss (or the 1st profit target) depending on a custom variable by which the average true range is multiplied with the option to specify the length as well as the type of the moving average (RMA, SMA, EMA or WMA) that are taking into account.
Optionally, you can disable...
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.
I am republishing this indicator as something changed within TradingView's script engine so that the old script ceased to function ( a minor syntax error that used to be acceptable but no longer is).
Anyhow here's the fixed version which as you can see has done a great job of keeping us on the right side of the trend with once-hot stocks like Skyworks !
