Automatically Trail Your Stop Loss by R-Multiple (MT4 EA)
CFTC Rules 4.41 - Hypothetical or Simulated performance results have certain limitations. Unlike an actual performance record, simulated results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, the results may have under-or-over compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated trading programs, in general, are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profit or losses similar to those shown. Testimonials appearing may not be representative of other clients or customers and is not a guarantee of future performance or success.

How to Trade the Head and Shoulders Pattern.
The head and shoulders chart pattern is a reversal pattern and most often seen in uptrends.
Not only is head and shoulders known for trend reversals, but it's also known for dandruff reversals as well.
In this lesson, we'll stick to talking about trend reversals and leave the topic of dandruff for another time.
Head and Shoulders.
A head and shoulders pattern is also a trend reversal formation.
It is formed by a peak (shoulder), followed by a higher peak (head), and then another lower peak (shoulder).
The slope of this line can either be up or down. Typically, when the slope is down, it produces a more reliable signal.
In this example, we can easily see the head and shoulders pattern.
With this formation, we put an entry order below the neckline.
We can also calculate a target by measuring the high point of the head to the neckline.
This distance is approximately how far the price will move after it breaks the neckline.
You can see that once the price goes below the neckline it makes a move that is at least the size of the distance between the head and the neckline.
We know you're thinking to yourself, "the price kept moving even after it reached the target."
And our response is, " DON'T BE GREEDY! "
Inverse Head and Shoulders.
The name speaks for itself. It is basically a head and shoulders formation, except this time it's upside down.
A valley is formed (shoulder), followed by an even lower valley (head), and then another higher valley (shoulder). These formations occur after extended downward movements.
Here you can see that this is just like a head and shoulders pattern, but it's flipped upside down.
Our target is calculated just like the head and shoulders pattern.
Measure the distance between the head and the neckline, and that is approximately the distance that the price will move after it breaks the neckline.
You can see that the price moved up nicely after it broke the neckline.
If your target is hit, then be happy with your profits.
However, there are trade management techniques where you can lock in some of your profits and still keep your trade open in case the price continues to move your way.
You will learn about those later on in the course.
