This is an updated version of my previous stop loss script.
I've added a double EMA line and modified the stop as below;
In an uptrend....
1. a yellow dot will appear once it's time to move your stop. The yellow dot will display at the level of the stop loss. Place your stop 1 pip below the dot.

1. Find bar with the smallest narrow range for a chosen period. Use hvol for filter.
2. Place stop-order for long position at previous high and stop-order for short at previous low to catch breakout in any direction.
3. Take profit on the next bar.

The Initial Start argument gives the minimum value for the SAR function's "Start" argument. The Increment/Start Ratio argument gives the ratio of the SAR function's...
I am republishing this indicator as something changed within TradingView's script engine so that the old script ceased to function ( a minor syntax error that used to be acceptable but no longer is).
Anyhow here's the fixed version which as you can see has done a great job of keeping us on the right side of the trend with once-hot stocks like Skyworks !
