Volatility stop

Are there any indicators on either NinjaTrader or MT4 which can run a volatility stop based on a recent swing high or low? There are countless volatility stops based on a moving average or some other linear function, but I am looking for a volatility stop script or indicator which allows you to determine the swing high or low based on the close of a bar.

I normally do this manually on my Mt4 platform but thought it should be automated to avoid sticky fingers.

You can see what I mean in the screenshot below.

I consider this as a very good way to avoid false breaks and get stopped out prematurely. Basically paying a little more for a loss to be absolutely sure your trade is wrong. It seems to work best on non time based bars such as constant range bars and tick bars.

I would say internet speed here is a huge liability. It's one of the main reasons I *try* not to trade smaller timeframes. Getting things automated so I can park it on a VPS and just monitor it remotely (co-location as they say) is the best way forward as far as I can see.

Forex and futures are illegal in Vietnam (shh, don't tell anyone). Everything has to be done overseas.

Donchian is the kind of volatility stop I am referring to which does not satisfy the flexibility required in my screenshot. I want to start the script based on my swing entry, not on some recalculating indicator which moves with the market.
