3 Bar Trailing Stop 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.22

This is a trailing stop calculated from the prior 3 bars. It is similar to the trailing stop developed by Larry Williams, but not identical. The indicator plots a channel with an upper and lower stopline. When price reaches out beyond the upper channel line, all short positions should be exited. When price breaks through the lower channel line, that is a signal for exiting long positions.

Formula: The upper channel line is calculated as the larger of the prior bar's high + 1 tick and the upper line of a 2-period Keltner Channel displaced by 2 bars. The lower channel is calculated as the smaller of the prior bar's low - 1 tick and the lower line of a 2-period Keltner Channel displaced by 2 bars. The Keltner Channel is built from the average true range instead of the simple range, which was used for the original Keltner Channel.

Parameters: The midband of the Keltner Channel can be calculated from the typical price (default setting), the close, the median or the weighted price. The multiplier used for calculating the channel width can be selected.

Reverse Intra-bar = false: This is the default setting of the indicator. A logical signal will be generated when the signal bar closes outside the channel. The position may be reversed at the open of the next bar.

Reverse Intra-bar = true: This is a different setting. The signal will be generated with the first tick that has plotted outside the channel. In this case the position may be reversed intra-bar.

Accessing the trend: The indicator comes with a BoolSeries that holds the trend derived from the last channel breakout. The BoolSeries can be accessed by other indicators or automated strategies.

Channel shading: The area between the Keltner Channels can be shaded according to the current trend.

Paintbars: The trend can also be displayed via paint bars.
