Hi thanks for the script, it's very useful!

Is it possible to use it with "//@version=2" parameter?

best regards, Luca

Never mind, I have adapted my script, now it works without the "//@version=2".

Thanks again for sharing the script, Luca

Hi, Thank you for posting this. I am very new to this concept and wish to ask what may be a stupid question. Here goes anyway:

Example: I have a max risk goal of not to lose more than 2% on any given trade.

1.) How would I set the inputs for this?

I have read some stuff on what is called an Average True Range Dynamic Stop.

2.) Is your script an ATR Dynamic Stop or something else?

Thanks

Hi, codetrader
1) I can`t recomendet to you anything. I don`t use this script, I just coding it from magazine Stocks & Commodities Jun 2009. Sorry.

2) This script recalculated on the realtime and make changes in the stoploss level dynamically.
