Testing the ATR position sizing concept
Fetcher[
SET{SHARESTOBUY, 300/atr(20)}
set{positionamt, close * sharestobuy}
set{stoploss, close - ATR(20)}

add column sharestobuy {shares}
add column stoploss {stop}
add column positionamt {size}
]



Just a note - using 1 ATR(20) increases the risk of being stopped out. When this was first shared by Kevin_in_GA he used 2 x ATR(20) which increases the safety margin but reduces the number of shares by half

thank you for dropping by Village Elder!

As I cannot code for beans, if i understand you correctly and have coded it correctly, ATR x2 stop would look like this:
Fetcher[

symlist(zm,ayx)

set{atrx2, atr(20) * 2}

SET{STB, 300/atrx2}
set{PSTA, close * STB}
set{sTP, close - ATRx2}

add column STB {shares to buy}
add column stp {stop loss}
add column psta{trade size}
]



compared to the original of
Fetcher[
symlist(zm, ayx)
SET{SHARESTOBUY, 300/atr(20)}
set{positionamt, close * sharestobuy}
set{stoploss, close - ATR(20)}

add column sharestobuy {shares to buy}
add column stoploss {stop loss}
add column positionamt {trade size}
]



Thanks in advance

I did not end up selling AYX or ZM EOD; will see what happens tomorrow.

SDGR and ZM having $10 days...will close them anytime; your mileage may vary. Amazing how options can magnify such moves picking weeklies ATM or even slightly OTM.

Will keep AYX for a while probably.

Playing AAPL and TSLA split runs. So far so good. Out of the remaining HIBL.
