The trend is your friend

Draw your trendline or -channel and instruct NanoTrader to use it as a stop loss. Many traders use trendlines and trendchannels. NanoTrader allows the trader to actively use his trendline or -channel as  the level for a stop order.

These are the advantages for traders:

  • You can use your trendline or -channel as a stop.
  • Your stop order will automatically follow the slope of the trendline or -channel.
  • You can use this function in any time frame and on any instrument.
  • Your position remains open as long as the trend remains intact.

The intelligent trendline or –channel stops allow the trader to surf the trend when managing  open positions.

This example shows a trader who bought a long position and who used the bottom of his trendchannel as his stop. The stop order automatically follows the trendchannel.
