The purpose of this indicator is to hep investors to identify a location to place them. The indicator plots the highest high from 'x' bars ago. It then plots a trailing stop loss 'y' percent below that line.
The indicator enables its users to input different 'x' and 'y' values to observe what they think works best for them in different markets.
Users might choose to pair the indicator with trend confirming indicators, such as moving average cross overs, to determine that the market is trending and not ranging.
There is no magic in this indicator, only maths. Like every indicator, it has no ability to predict anything. Just because the market is doing one thing now, it might do something different later. The past does not equal the present nor the future. Make your own decisions and be responsible for them.
All the best to you and your family.
