Dynamic Stop Loss Alert TradingView Strategy

Author: ChaoZhang, Date: 2023-09-18 17:20:06


This strategy demonstrates passing dynamic stop loss prices via TradingView alerts for execution in MT4/5 platforms using TradingConnector. Entries are determined using Stochastic indicator with dynamic stops set at recent pivots. Partial profit taking is also possible.

Strategy Logic

Long and short entries on Stochastic K and D line crosses. Recent pivot highs/lows are calculated as dynamic stop loss prices. These are passed real-time to the broker via alerts on entry. Partial profits are taken at certain percentage of stop loss distance. Profit prices can also be dynamically alerted.


  • Dynamic stops allow surgical stop loss placement
  • Partial profit taking improves capital efficiency
  • Real-time passing of stop loss price to broker account
  • Backtested stop loss mimics live, realistic simulation


  • Lag exists in Stochastic indicator
  • Frequent partial profit taking disturbs holding
  • Dynamic variables behave differently across timeframes
  • Partial profit percentage needs optimization

Risks can be managed by tuning Stochastic parameters, adjusting partial profit ratio etc.


  • Test different Stochastic parameter combinations
  • Optimize partial profit take ratio
  • Explore other stop loss approaches like trailing stop
  • Test robustness across markets and products


This strategy demonstrates executing dynamic stop loss trades from TradingView to MT4/5 using new features. It can serve as a framework for further backtesting. Optimization is required for specific assets.
