As a new comer to metastock I would like to know how to plot an Indicator 20% below a line chart, as a stop loss. Also how to start it at a specific date.

Thanks in advance.

Close - 0.2 * Close
(1 - 0.2)Close
0.8 * Close

=== Stop Loss

Plot Either of these end

Close - 0.2 * Close,
(1 - 0.2)*Close,
0.8 * Close,

In order to get it to start at a specific date say 12/05/1999 in dd/mm/yyyy format (sorry, I live in the uk) use the following syntax for example

(1 - 0.2)*Close
(Day >= 12 And Month >= 5 And Year = 1999)
(Month >= 5 And Year = 1999)
Year >= 2000

(Where I have written (Or / And) try either I can't remember which is the right one to use, I think its Or.)

The syntax for date comparisions in Metastock is exasperating and I have mentioned this to Equis Support, with no reply

However, if you do not go through the 'exasperation' that I have writtenabove you will most likely come up with wrong results. It happened to melast thursday, that's why I can tell you.

I'll try and send you the code for what I was doing after lunch or tomorrow

Pie of cake! First go to the Indicator on your new indicator (Wallie's 20% Stop Loss Indicator). Now the hard does your original indicator plot? Is it an oscillator or a simple line study? Oscillators plot above and below a specific point usually zero. Line studies plot price values. If you are willing to accept a value that is 80% of your original indicator value then go to functions and select your indicator (ie. let's use CCI(14)...) Finally, we want a value of 80% so
we'll multiply by .80 . So here's your indicator:


CCI(14) * .80

You may also want to use the other side of the equation by multiplying by 120%; so your indicator would be:

CCI(14) * 1.20

You can plot both lines at the same time in the same indciator by defining them in an indicator as follows:

Wallie's 20% Stop Loss Indicator

MINUS:= CCI(14) * .80;
PLUS:= CCI(14) * 1.20;


Okay, we've helped you and now it's your turn to help us! Share the results of what you get!
