Two types of stops are offered, Chandelier and Parabolic. The most popular is the Chandelier Stop, which is a trailing stop that was popularized by Chuck LeBeau. These are dynamic, progressive stops based on trade progress and the volatility of the market. Also available are Welles Wilder’s Parabolic Stops. Parabolic refers to a price and time based trading approach. These stops increment each period, while Chandelier stops wait for the trade to progress. Both stops, Chandelier and Parabolics, can be calculated starting at the time that you enter a trade or plotted as always in the market trading indictors.
What makes the development of stocks on BBForex unique is that both Chandelier Stops and Parabolic Stops can be plotted on BBForex charts for trades based on the users’ actual trading activity, for either for long or short positions. A detailed trade report is provided for each stop whether a discrete trade or continuous system approach is chosen. Like all of BBForex advanced chart features, stop parameters for each user are saved and will be reloaded using the same settings at the next log in. As data is updated users’ stops are adjusted automatically and a current trade report is generated.
Says Bollinger “Forex traders have been telling me for years that they rely on Bollinger Bands to make trading decisions. The addition of being able to plot stops on BBForex charts has made the site so much more powerful. Knowing when to exit a trade can be more important than when you enter.”
