An ATR Trailing Stoploss

For Meta Trader 5.

We have all experienced a situation where the market wipes out our stoploss before it turning in the direction we had anticipated. 

This experience is more frequent when you use a trailing stoploss. If only there was a way to place and trail the stoploss just the perfect amount of pips away. Well, there is...  

The Average True Range (ATR) is a one of the most popular technical analysis indicator, introduced by J.Welles Wilder, that measures Market Volatility for a given number of candles back.  

Simply put, the concept behind having an ATR Trailing Stoploss is to trailing your order (locking in profits), giving your trade just enough room so that your Stoploss is not wiped out.  Therefore a currency experiencing higher volatility will have its stoploss more pips away than a currency experiencing lower volatility.
