Another ATR Trailing Stop

v10.3
Another ATR Trailing Stop

Closely following the price with the Another trailing stop ATR (Average True Range), a based trend following indicator. The idea of this indicator is to closely following the price to get out quickly if the price tends to not move enough to ensure the trend is profitable.

This version uses declining ATR to closely adapt its level to the price. The trailing stop line is following the highest Close (green when it is bullish) or Lowest Close (red when it is bearish) by adding or subtracting the ATR value multiplied with the “mult” setting.

If the ATR (aka price volatility) is ascending, then the trailing stop keep its previous level. When it is declining, the trailing stop level adapt its value according to the current trend:

  • Long trend: if the new calculated level is higher than the previous one
  • Short trend: if the new calculated level is lower than the previous one

The ATR trailing stop has 2 modes: (“mode” setting)

  • mode=0 ; the trend line will keep the same level each time a cross over occur
  • mode>0 ; the trend line will take the highest or lowest Close level each time a cross over occur

The chosen mode of the trailing stop line behavior depends of your own trading style, traded instrument and timeframe.

Idea come from this topic in the indicator’s forum: ATR TRAILING STOP

    I tried this indicator to trail stop. Problem i am facing is that, when there is a trend change, say from bullish to bearish. For example, In a short entry – I get stopped out when price moves back and touches the support line of Bullish Trend. While the purpose of stop is to sell when the BEARISH upper line is crossed (when short in market), positions get stopped out at start of the trend. I think this is unintended consequence. I tried similar another indicator, same thing happens. How would be possible to BUY only when RED line above is crossed in Short Entry and Bottom Green line when Long?

      Use the color variables R and G to test if the trend is bullish (R=0) or bearish (R>0).
