GG ATR Trailing Stop


ATR Trailing Stops are mainly used to protect capital and lock in gains on individual transactions however they can also be used, in conjunction with a fad filter, to indicate entries.

The indicator will make your calculation of stop loss easier as it’s going to be visually aiding you in selecting where to put your stoploss level on the graph by calculating the current value of ATR indicator.

for people who are unfamiliar with ATR, it is a useful indicator to figure stoploss for trend following approach. If volatility is high, ATR stoploss level will be wider to ensure that your stoploss is reasonably wide enough to stay with the trend; and when volatility is low, ATR stoploss level will be contracted narrower to ensure that you won’t be caught in a sudden trend reversal or big pullback.

With this indicator:

– Helps you to identify your stop loss or take profit points according to visual indicators. You have to adjust it manually.

– Helps you to find entry and exit points when combined with other indicators (for example, GG Time to Trade see the picture below).

Typical ATR time periods used vary between 5 and 21 days. Wilder originally suggested using 7 days, short-term traders use 5, and longer term traders 21 days. Multiples between 2.5 and 3.5 x ATR are normally applied for trailing stops, with lower multiples more prone to whipsaws.

The default is set as 3 x 21-Day ATR.
