Here is another Trailing stop loss Indicator with Automated Buy and Sell Signals similar to Supertrend and it is again open source and non repainting version.
This indicator uses two modes, optimized, and manual. Optimized mode calculates the stop line by using a 14 period EMA smoothed ATR(14) multiplied by a fixed multiplier of 2.824. In manual mode, you set a fixed number of stops you want the stop line to be drawn. In this MT4 version, there are two modes:
1. ATR mode (customizable ATR period, multiplier, and smoothing)
2. Fixed stop mode (customizable fixed stop)
The input parameters are as follows:
UseATRMode – This calculates the stop line based on ATR using customizable period, multiplier and smoothing.
NonATRStopPips – If “UseATRMode” is false, then this value is the number of fixed pips to place the stop line.
ATRPeriod – If “UseATRMode” is true, then this sets the ATR period.
ATRMultiplier – If “UseATRMode” is true, then the ATR value will be multiplied by this value when calculating the stop line.
ATRSmoothing – If “UseATRMode” is true, then this will smooth the selected ATR with an EMA of this smoothing period.
UpArrowColor – The color the Up arrows will display in.
DnArrowColor – The color the Down arrows will display in.
ArrowDistance – This can adjust the distance away from the stop line that the arrows appear. By default, the arrows appear directly above or below the stop line. A positive number here will move the arrows further away from the price. A negative number will move it closer to the price.
AlertSound – If true, this will sound an alert when the reverse condition has been triggered.
AlertMail – If true, will send email to the email address registered with MT4.
ShowComment – This will turn on/off the comment on the chart. Turn off if you have other indicators that put data there and you don’t want it overwritten.
