-3ATR line

Question

Could anyone be kind enough to tell me how I could draw a -3ATR line on the charts of the positions I hold?

Hi ,  can you explain a bit more what you are looking for. The number associated with ATR refers to the number of periods the ATR is calculated from so can't be negative, or did you mean minus 3 x ATR. How did you mean to use it? Many use 1, 2 or 3 x ATR to give a stop loss levels or target levels so that would be a horizontal line on the chart.

Caseynotes thanks for your helpful response. I use minus 3 x the 14 day average true range as a trailing stop on my weekly system. I use Metastock to calculate show this. It would be much more convenient to see it on the charts of my IG positions. Particularly as I will not have access to Metastock for the next few weeks

Your best bet would be to go MT4 charts where there are a number of downloadable ATR based trailing stop indicators such as the Volty Channel Stop in the pic below.

    • Hi all, been up and running and watching from the side lines. Thanks for putting the list up early as I made my own list from the gap scanner from ideas but you seemed to have more plus alot of the tickers I could not trade on IG but jumped on TG Therapeutics at 973 and took some money from that. Then jumped back in at 1059 and she plummeted and my heart just sank. I managed to ride it back up to 1053 and got out with a small profit of £20. Should have put my stop in but am still learning to get out quick . I was so lucky it went back up. Thought I was going to be on a bad loss because I didn't get out early enough. I find that if you only gain a small amount each day its better that going hard at it and loosing.  Still got loads to learn. Anyway cant wait till monday.  Great content and look forward to next week. Have a great weekend.
    • Is it safe to come out now?
