SuperTrend U11 (amaSuperTrendU11) 5 *
Version 2.3*) November 16, 2017

The SuperTrend indicator is an application of the concept of MAE (maximum adverse excursion), which was introduced by John Sweeney in the mid-nineties. It is a Stop-And-Reverse (SAR) indicator based on breakouts from a modified Keltner channel.

The SuperTrendU11 is an enhanced version of the original SuperTrend indicator that comes with the following modifications:

- You may select between 36 different moving averages for the baseline.
- The baseline is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.
- You may select from 4 different volatility measures - average true range, average range, residual mean absolute deviation and residual root mean square deviation
- Average true range and average range can be calculated from 30 different moving averages.
- All volatility measures are also calculated one bar ago.

In fact there is no point in moving a trailing stop towards the current price intra-bar. Therefore a trailing stop should always be calculated from the prior bar and not the last price.

When you import the install file to NinjaTrader, it will also install the following moving averages:

- Moving Median
- Moving Median TPO
- Moving Median VWTPO
- Moving Mean TPO
- Moving Mean VWTPO
- Adaptive Laguerre Filter
- Butterworth Filter
- Distant Coefficient Filter
- Double Weighted Moving Average (DWMA)
- Exponential Hull Moving Average (EHMA)
- Gaussian Filter
- Holt EMA
- Laguerre Filter
- Range Weighted Moving Average
- SuperSmoother
- Sine Weighted Moving Average
- Tillson T3
- Triple Weighted Moving Average (TWMA)
- ZerolagHATEMA
- ZerolagTEMA

It will also install debugged versions of MAX and MIN, as the in-built versions supplied with NT8 do not work correctly with Renko bars (RemoveLastBarSupported).

The SuperTrend U11 can be set to revert intra-bar or at the bar close. With default settings the stop line is only broken, when there is a bar close beyond the stop. The indicator further comes with paint bars and sound alerts.

The SuperTrend is a trend indicator, which can be used in various ways. It is best used as a trailing stop or as a trend filter. It can also be used as a stop-and-reverse indicator, but will only work as such in trending markets. Typically it will allow for profitable results while the market is trending and then give the money back in sideways markets.

Note: The SuperTrend U11 has the trend exposed as a public property. This property can be accessed programmatically. However, it cannot be currently accessed via the market analyzer. In order to access the Trend series via the market analyzer, a specific MarketAnalyzerColumn is required. The MarketAnalyzerColumn is not yet included with the install file, as it has led to freezes with NT The bug has been confirmed by NinjaTrader developers and only fixed with the latest release NT (issue #12054). The market analyzer column and sound files for the SuperTrend U11 will be available with a future update.

*) Unfortunately, the forum software always renames zip files to match the original file name. Therefore the zip file refers to a prior version of the amaSuperTrendU11. Be assured that the zip file contains the indicator version referenced in the headline.
