Chande Kroll Stop

This is a trend-following indicator that identifies the stop loss for a long or short position by using a variation on directional movement. It is calculated on the average true range of an instrument’s volatility. The stops are placed under (and on) the high (low) of the last “n” bars. The difference is proportional to the average True Range on “N” bars.
