SafeZone Stop

by Brian Brown, 2777 days ago

The Safezone indicator, introduced by Alexander Elder in 2002, is used as a stop order against signal reversal in trending markets.

The Safezone stop intends to create a better trailing stop by eliminating the noise component of a trend and by creating a safer stop. It calculates two lines depending on an uptrend or a downtrend. These lines will be used as stops, one for long positions and another for short positions.

The function, I have uploaded, creates the SafeZone stop for long positions. It has two parameters: the lookback period, which defines the number of bars to use for the calculation and the coefficient. Generally, traders use a value of 20 for the lookback period and a value of 2 for the coefficient.
To use this function as a trailing stop in the simulator, enable trailing stop in your trading system, change the stop settings to (Point) then set the value of the stop to the following formula: close - safezone(20, 2);

You can also use it as a sell rule: sell = close < safezone(20, 2);
Interpretation: Sell any position if the price is trading below the safezone stop.

Trading financial instruments, including foreign exchange on margin, carries a high level of risk and is not suitable for all investors. The high degree of leverage can work against you as well as for you. Before deciding to invest in financial instruments or foreign exchange you should carefully consider your investment objectives, level of experience, and risk appetite. The possibility exists that you could sustain a loss of some or all of your initial investment and therefore you should not invest money that you cannot afford to lose. You should be aware of all the risks associated with trading and seek advice from an independent financial advisor if you have any doubts.
