I have absolutely no coding experience in mq4 indicators, and am asking for help in creating an indicator. The volatility trailing stop that uses a multiple of ATR has been of great use to me in Metastock when I used to trade equities, and I've been looking for an equivalent in metatrader.
I've been using Igorad's EXCELLENT indicator VoltyChannel_Stop lately - found in this post:
Again, thanks for uploading your ATR files. Unfortunately, none of the indicators can get me where I need to go. But, the ATR_SL_Chanel was close - but, I cannot figure out what the ATR setting is and what the input value represents.
In any event, if anyone reading this can code the description in the first post, I would be eternally grateful.
You'd get, maybe not my first born child, but probably one of the ones later on...
I don't know how to keep thanking you for your help. I can see your generosity has no limit - and I'm sure I speak for many, many people on these forums.
This stop indicator is great; it is similar, I think, to the volatility stop (your volty_channelstop v1) I was using. I can't seem to figure out the difference, though I know one exists. They don't exactly match up even when I've make the settings equivalent.
Again, I really appreciate all your help, now, in the past, and certainly in the future (when you'll finally tire of me...).
I think I've now got everything I need to do my backtesting.
You two are great examples of people who will go out of their way to help somebody they don't even know, when they get nothing in return short of appreciation (if they are lucky).
If I ever get this trading figured out so I'm consistently profitable, I'll have people like you to thank. They say one can only get to the top by standing on the shoulders of others, and the two of you are prime examples of very broad shoulders.
I appreciate you've started this thread, and of course the invaluable help of Igor and Newdigital. I've started looking at one of the ATR SL indicators for my own style of trading. Very helpful my friends, thank you all.
As well (and which for one) that system is not points I is so exact not from me developed, I have only bit changed and tested with the baking test of CMC and the result well out too well and was to be that because of wants I with the MT4 program to also test. Can you help me ?
