Another Trailing Stop Shell

Here is another Trailing Stop Shell/Program
If anyone wants to work with this and try and see if it works reliably for Auto Trailing.
My Goal is to use any Program that would be Reliable for Auto Trailing your Stop, Preferably Parabolic Sar.
I have not found that Program yet, but wanted to post what i can find here at futures.io (formerly BMT) to see if i can get some help and maybe by way of a few folks Testing these Programs we could have a Decent Auto Trailing Stop for our Trading.
I have seen where i could have made so much more if i had this type program.
Anyone who wants to try these for Testing on Demo first and then make comments on their Reliability are welcome to Post.
Like i said before i am not a programmer, or do i know much at all about code, so i am asking for help.
One of these Programs may be what i am looking for to Trade GC & CL with an Auto Trailing Stop.
just now started to try an implement these into the platform, so i am a bit lost with using them.
Link to thread where i found this one, Post # 10.....www.bigmiketrading.com/ninjatrader-programming/3799-possible-trail-stop-per-parabolic-sar.html
Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I have programmed a trailing SAR stop for my strategy; i can modify it to suit your needs. Let me know if this still interests you.

Trailing Stop with SAR

You can add this to your strategy with the edit strategy wizard:

For Exit Long:
CrossAbove(SMA(ParabolicSAR(0.02, 0.2, 0.02),1),SMA(1),1)
This means, a 1 period SMA of the ParabolicSAR crosses above a standard 1 period SMA.

In the view code it looks like this:
// Condition set 2
if (CrossAbove(SMA(ParabolicSAR(0.02, 0.2, 0.02), 1), SMA(1), 1))
{
ExitLong("LoEx", "Lo");

Reverse for Short Exits:
// Condition set 4
if (CrossBelow(SMA(ParabolicSAR(0.02, 0.2, 0.02), 1), SMA(1), 1))
{
ExitShort("ShEx", "Sh");

This is my solution for the Trailing Stop with ParabolicSAR.

Many thanks.
Can you or anyone reading this do a similar solution using SuperTrend Trailing Stop instead of parabolic SAR. Will be much appreciated.

@Hansen:

Don't worry about that. Turns out the plots are exposed in anaSuperTrend so I was able to do that myself. For anyone who may need the code here's how to add anaSuperTrend trailing stop to a Strategy.

//For Longs:

if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Long && (anaSuperTrendU11(2, 1.5, 18, false, anaSuperTrendU11BaseType.Median, anaSuperTrendU11OffsetType.Default, anaSuperTrendU11VolaType.Simple_Range).StopDot[0] >= Close[0]))

{
ExitLong();
}


//For Shorts:

if (Position.MarketPosition == MarketPosition.Short && (anaSuperTrendU11(2, 1.5, 18, false, anaSuperTrendU11BaseType.Median, anaSuperTrendU11OffsetType.Default, anaSuperTrendU11VolaType.Simple_Range).StopDot[0] <= Close[0]))

{
ExitShort();
}



Don't forget to add the anaSuperTrend indicator to the chart.


Hope that helps.

Thanks much. Will this create a server side stop (like trailing) or exit when the stop line breaks?

Thanks in advance.

I believe it works like OCO, it resides in your PC.

The Chart shows the Trade and Parabolic Sar for Trailing.
Things to Consider would be as Follows:

- Platform Disconnects....what happens to the Trailing Stop or would there be any Stop Protection?
- would the Parabolic Sar Trailing Stop be Unwantedly Executed by way of either Bid/Ask quotes and not True
Executed Prices?
- Any other suggestions would be appreciated as this is ongoing project for me until i get this Strategy completed.

Hello sandptrader,

Interesting chart. I am mostly interested about the "line-type" oscillator (on the bottom of the chart). Is it possible for me to have it (download it or buy it) ? Or can you please tell me where can I find it ? I have developed similar (private) indicators of my own, but I would like to see yours as well. Thank you.
