This is already possible to Fractals, greater than 5 (2 +2 +1).

In this version you can also use 3.

Can this strategy be used in conjunction with another?

So If I used the Advanced Fractal Strategy to make my buy and sell orders, and also had this attached to the chart it would set up a trailing stop for the previous order?

Is there such a strategy?

When the signal appears when only the profitable positions, losing streak without treatment.

Sites on the other stop strategies aimed at specified positions or all positions of execution, if I open up many positions in the strategy of setting time will be very troublesome.

thank you!

Using FractalStop4.lua, I've made a corresponding trailing limit stradegy that works with all the orders for the selected pair and moving back if you wish to capture more pips.
Thanks a lot!

Wow Really Nice work! Is it possible to have this based on 2nd fractal instead of the most recent. Example would be trail stop just above last 2nd fractal on a 15min chart.

Hello, I like this. I think this is the only trailing stop on the forum that works for "all orders". I shall study it and see how the code can be adapted for other trialing stops in a similar fashion.

Meanwhile, I would like to request a change to this version of the strategy. Can the asymmetrical fractal indicator be used as the fractal base on which to place stop losses?
It can be found here:
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=32544&p=55438

Everything else would stay the same, I just want to specify the before and after number of candles that form a fractal for this trailing stop.

Thank you, however, is it the same as "Fractalstop4.lua", just using asymmetric fractals?
Studying the code I notice it is less in size, and generally it is more like the original .lua in the first post, which does not work on all orders?

I see it is
Code: Select all
instance.parameters.Trade .. ")";

Instead of
Code: Select all
instance.parameters.Symbol .. ")";


etc.

I can try fix it copy pasting lines between the two strategies to achieve this and post it here later for your confirmation if it is correct but if there's a quicker way of doing it can you post the "Fractalstop4.lua" version with Asymmetric Fractals, thanks.
