Hi Matthew and thanks for your reply.
Yes, I have tried to apply the ATRTSCAN script as above to a Show Plot and it shows nothing – I seem to remember reading somewhere that ATRTSCAN will only work in the Stops section of the Backtester.
Below is the working script I use on my charts for the trailing stop:-
a30 = ATR(BARS=10, MULT=1.00);
a10 = ATR(BARS=10, MULT=5.00);
a1 = if(ROC(BARS=52) > MA(ROC(BARS=52),BARS=8, CALC=Close, STYLE=Exponential), a10, a30);
c1 = HIGH() – a1;
But, the trailing stop is dependent on the START date, so how do I code the START date to automatically reflect the different dates of entry in the Backtester?
