ATR trailing stop in TOS?

Is there a way to use trailing stops based on volatility (ATR) in TOS? I know it is available as a study. But I am interested in a predefined order type in TOS just like "limit" or regular "TRAILSTOP". So this predefined order type would be an ATR trail stop that I can set and forget about it, instead of manually monitoring it. Any ideas would be highly appreciated.

thanks!

Just the question on my mind.
I am currently manually adjusting my stoploss based on study ATRTrailingStop(2.5 atr) as the price action moves.
The study helps me display it on graph, so I can adjust my stop loss manually.

Something I am trying to build in thinkscript - which indicates when to buy.
It's based on MACD and RSI

 
Code
    isBullishTrend and 
    close > open and
    (rsiSlow > 70 and rsiFast > 70) and    
    bollingerAvg > ma100 and
    MACDFastOverSlowOrOverZero;
Once I am able to test it, I am hoping to release it to everyone.
