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
- ADXVMA
- 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 8.0.8.0. The bug has been confirmed by NinjaTrader developers and only fixed with the latest release NT 8.0.9.0. (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.

SuperTrend M11 (amaSuperTrendM11) 5 *
Version 2.0*) October 15, 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 SuperTrendM11 is an enhanced version of the original SuperTrend indicator that comes with the following modifications:

- The moving average has been replaced with a more robust median.
- The median is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.
- The average true range (ATR) is calculated one bar ago to avoid recalculating with each incoming tick.

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.

Chande Kroll Stop 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.30

This is an implementation of the volatiliy based stop that was suggested by Tushar Chande and Stanley Kroll in their book "The New Technical Trader". The indicator comes with a long stop line (blue) and and a short stop line (red).

Calculation of long stop: The preliminary long stop is calculated by deducting a multiple of a 10-period ATR from the highest high of the last 10 bars. The long stop is then calculated as the highest of the last 20 preliminary long stops.

Calculation of short stop: The preliminary short stops are calculated by adding a ,ultiple of a 10-period ATR to the lowest low of the last 10 bars. The short stop is then calculated as the lowest of the last 20 perliminary short stops.

Calculation of ATR: The ATR can be calculated in three different ways. "Arithmetic" uses a simple moving average over the last 10 true ranges. "Exponential" uses an exponential moving average over the last 10 true ranges, while "Wilder" simply calculates the default ATR(10) which is calculated as exponential moving averages with a smaller smoothing constant.

Default settings: Default settings follow suggestions by Chande & Kroll. Following suggestions in their book the default parameters are 10, 3 and 20. Also they used a simple moving average for smoothing the true ranges. The only change that was necessary was to adapt the indicator so that it can be used intra-bar. For this purpose, the calculation does not use the (unstable) true range of the current bar nor the high of the current bar, but relies on the values for the prior bar. Just for the purpose to compare the indicator with implementations for other charting packages, it is also possible to perform calculations from the current unstable bar. When used with "COBC = False" or with the strategy analyzer (backtesting), the default settings should be used.

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.

Chandelier Stop 5 *
Exported using NT Version 7.0.1000.12

This is a new implementation of the chandelier stop developed by Charles LeBeau. For a long trade the chandelier stop is calculated by subtracting a multiple of the average true range over the last N bars from the highest high (chandelier) since the inception of the trade. For a short trade the chandelier stop is calculated by adding a multiple of the average true range over the last N bars to the lowest low since the inception of the trade.

Instead of calculating the stop from the highest high and the lowest low, it is also possible to calculate it from the highest close and the lowest close.

The indicator version presented here uses the average true range calculated one bar ago. This is to avoid that the stop moves away when approached by a bar, it further acts against the distortion of the average true range when the indicator is set to COBC = false and reduces CPU load. The concept of using the ATR one bar ago was already introduced with the SuperTrend M11.

UseHighLow: The chandelier stops can be calculated from highest high/lowest low or from highest close/lowest close:

Reverse Intra-bar = false: This is the default setting of the indicator. A logical signal will be generated when the close of the signal bar has taken out the stop line. The position may be reversed at the open of the next bar. The paint bars will only change colors for the bar after the signal bar. The arrow will be also plotted for the entry bar.

Reverse Intra-bar = true: This is an unusual setting for the Chandelier Stop The signal will be generated with the first tick that has plotted on the other side of the stop line. In this case the position may be reversed intra-bar for the signal bar. Paintbars and arrows will already plot for the signal bar.

Accessing the trend: The indicator comes with a BoolSeries that holds the trend. This BoolSeries can be accessed by other indicators or automated strategies.

Paintbars: The indicator has an option to display the current trend via paintbars. Downclose bars are filled, upclose bars are hollow. For the upclose bars an opacity can be selected for better visibility.

Arrows: The indicator has an option to display trend changes via an arrow.

Sound alerts: The indicator will alert to trend reversals and potential trend reversals. A potential trend reversal occurs when price touches the stop line intra-bar prior to the confirmation by a close on the other side of the stop line. The sound files are included with the indicator install file. Please unzip and copy them into the program files (x86)\ NinjaTrader 7\ sounds directory or whatever directory is used by NinjaTrader to store the sound files.
