Trailing Mode (TimeFrame/PointBuffer/Value/ActivationTrailingDistance)

Trailing Mode: Use a Trailing Stop and ARYA will be able to secure your gains as the market moves. When activated, if the market starts to move in the wrong direction, the Stop Loss will have moved closer to the market price so will minimise the amount of loss you can incur. Different Trailing Stops will move your Stop Loss using different methods. On the chart, a purple line will indicate where the trailing stop will be triggered. This purple line symbolises the activation line of the Points, Breakeven trailing mode, Combo Points and Combo Fractal+.

  • None: No trailing stop will be applied.
  • Fractal: ARYA will move your Trailing Stop along fractals opposite to your trade direction. If you decide to BUY, ARYA will position the trailing stop on the last confirmed inverse fractal, and as the market moves upwards, will move the trailing stop up to the next confirmed inverse fractal and then the next etc. This type of trailing stop is most suitable when there is a strong trend.
  • Fractal+: ARYA will secure your gains by shifting your Stop Loss along fractals opposite to the trade direction, found only in the trades profit zone (area between the entry point and Take Profit).
  • High Low: In a BUY trade, ARYA will place the trailing stop at the bottom of the current candlestick and move the Stop Loss to the bottom of the next candlestick and the next etc. as the market moves upwards. In a SELL trade, ARYA will place the stop at the top of the current candlestick and move along subsequent tops of candlesticks as the market moves downwards.
  • High Low+: See High Low, but this trailing mode applies specifically to candlesticks found in the profit zone (area between the entry point and Take Profit).
  • Points: ARYA will place a trailing stop according to the number of points you enter in Trailing Value. The trailing stop will be triggered when the market reaches the percentage defined in the Activation Trailing Distance (shown as a purple line on the chart). Once this level is reached, in a BUY trade, ARYA will move the Stop Loss up by that number of points or down by that number of points in a SELL trade.

Example: If you choose an Activation Take Profit Distance of 20% and a Trailing Value of 5, when 20% of the distance between the entry point and the Take Profit is reached, ARYA will automatically follow the market by 5 points and place the Stop Loss there.

  • Breakeven: Choose a percentage in Activation Trailing Distance. Once the market has moved by this percentage, your Breakeven Trailing Mode will be activated and ARYA will move your Stop Loss 1% above the entry price in a BUY trade, or 1% below the entry price in a SELL trade.

Example: If you enter a BUY trade and the ATPD is set to 20%, a purple line will indicate the distance of 20% from the entry point to the Take Profit. When the market crosses this line, the trailing stop will be activated, and the Stop Loss will be moved 1% above the trade entry price.

  • Combo Fractal+: Combines the Fractal+ and Breakeven trailing modes. ARYA will secure your profits by shifting the Stop Loss to confirmed inverse fractals in your profit zone and will also shift the Stop Loss to Breakeven when the market has covered 50% of the path between your entry price and your Take Profit. 50% is the default value which you can change in Activation Trailing Distance.
  • Combo Points: ARYA will place the trailing stop based on the combination of the trailing modes Points and Breakeven. Trailing mode is activated first at Breakeven and then according to Points.
  • Moving Average+: ARYA will move your Stop Loss and close the trade at the point where the market crosses the Moving Average line. The trailing stop is only activated if this cross happens within the profit zone. The Moving Average is calculated based on the value you enter in the Trailing Value
  • Ichimoku Tenkan (red): In a BUY trade, ARYA will close the position when the market breaks the Tenkan (red line), and the candle closes below the line. If the candle closes above the Tenkan or simply makes a wick (and does not close), then nothing happens, and the trade will continue.

In a SELL trade this is the opposite. ARYA will close the position when the market breaks the Tenkan, and the candle closes above the line. If the candle closes below the Tenkan or simply makes a wick (and does not close), then nothing happens, and the trade will continue.

  • Ichimoku Tenkan+: See Ichimoku Tenkan, but this trailing mode applies specifically to candlesticks found in the profit zone (area between the entry point and Take Profit).
  • Ichimoku Kijun (blue): Same process as Ichimoku Tenkan (see above) but with the Kijun (blue line).
  • Ichimoku Kijun+: See Ichimoku Kijun, but this trailing mode applies specifically to candlesticks found in the profit zone (area between the entry point and Take Profit).
  • MM Cross: ARYA will place your trailing stop at the point where the Moving Averages cross. You can display both moving averages on the chart. Choose values for the Moving Averages in the Trend filter value field. To define more than one, use the / symbol e.g., 20/7. Can have a third potentially – Julie checking
  • MM Cross+: See MM Cross, but this trailing mode will only activate when the cross happens in the profit zone (area between the entry point and Take Profit).

Trailing Time Frame: ARYA will place the trailing stop and will activate based on the UT you define in Trailing Time Frame. The default setting is ‘Current’ which will activate the trailing mode on the chart you are viewing but you can choose any other UT. For example, it is possible to enter your trade in M1 but place the Fractal+ trailing mode on H1 fractals.

Trailing Point Buffer: Input a value here and ARYA will be able to shift the initial trailing stop by that number of points.

Trailing Value: Input a value in here when using the trailing modes Points, Combo Points and Moving Average+, MM Cross and MM Cross+.

Activation Trailing Distance: Choose a percentage from 5% to 90% and once the market has moved by this percentage, your Breakeven Trailing Mode and Partial Close will be activated.

Partial Close Indivisible: You can partially close part of your trade. For example, if you have a 0.1 lot trade, and want to close half position (0.5 of the 0.1 lots for profit) and let the other 0.5 lot remain, you can set this parameter.

  • True (default): ARYA will apply the partial close and will be able to split and close part of the trade. However, if the position is too small, ARYA cannot split and close part of the trade.

Example: If the position is 0.01 lots and therefore not divisible, the partial close will have no effect. If the position is 0.02 lots, the position will be cut in half. If 0.03, will it be cut in 3. With lot sizes larger than this, the trade will be cut according to the percentage in Activation Trailing Distance.

  • False: ARYA will apply the partial close but if the trade is not divisible, ARYA will simply close the position.
