Thanks, I've come to understand this now.

Just hoping someone could kindly code one as per my request in the programming section or alternatively I'm on the look out for similar automated stop strategy sold by a vendor.

I'm surprised there aren't more available in the indicator/strategy section of the forum.

The point here is that automated strategies do not always work. If any strategies are sold by a vendor, you cannot be sure whether they work or not. It is difficult to buy money.

I have coded a simple SuperTrend strategy myself, but it only makes money in trending markets and gives back that money in a sideways market. This means that it is likely that a SuperTrend strategy is only profitable when used with an appropriate trend filter.

You can also use the SuperTrend as a stop strategy (exits only) and combine it with other indicators that give you better entry signals.

Configuring anaSuperTrend

Hi Fat Tails

I am not looking to use the supertrend strategy as the be all and end all of strategies to make profit. Perhaps I wasn't clear enough in the beginning.

I have a specific reversal trade setup that is based reading price action, volume profiling, order flow and cumulative delta. It's a late morning session trade that allows me here in Australia to walk away from the PC, have dinner and trail my stop until a hard target has been reached, or the atr based stop has been hit. Simple as that, the trade only comes about on a clean reversal that essentially sets up a short term mean reversion trend back up to the IB high or previous HVN, VPOC.
I will need to test it a fair amount to gauge what period/multiplier I will need.

It would be really awesome if you could kindly post the strategy to the indicator/strategy section of the forum?

Thanks a lot!

Z

Dear Fat Tails, would never want to chase you, but I prefer to use your version of the ST over the other one..

Would it be possible that you send me the file?

Configuring anaSuperTrend


Hi @fattails, I love your Lizard trader work, the Session VWAPs are great, I am wondering still, for Super trend, what can be the optimal settings for a 2 tick Renko chart. I have tried (8,2.5,15) but it's too tight & is hit on any reversal, yet the one you put here for 15min chart is too wide, anything in between?
Thanks alot
