    Hi Evan,

    If you start typing ‘chandelier’ in the script editor window a pop-up suggests using CHST for a chandelier stop function:
    Capture

    I’m not sure how this differs from the RAD Chandelier, but the default settings use a 20ATR with a factor of 3, which can easily be changed.

    Similar to the Parabolic Stop & Reverse PSAR() function, CHST() has a ‘state’ condition, where 1 is long (ie close is above the chandelier value) and 0 is short. So the following used in a watchlist will give a value of 1 or 0:

    You can then format the column to display Long or Short by right-clicking on the column heading and selecting Custom Labels:

    Capture

    Hi Darren,

    Thanks for the info.
    The RAD Chandelier is a bit different. It’s a chandelier stop however it can be configured to transition from say a 3ATR stop to a 4ATR stop once price moves to a particular price point.  Its useful in that you can have your initial, breakeven and trailing stop configured in the one tool.
    Just thought Optuma might have something like it. Or a way to script it.
