I. SCRIPTS ACCESS AND TRIALS
1. For the trial request access, they have to be done through my website.
2. My website URL is in this script signature at the very bottom (you'll have to scroll down a bit and going past the long description) and in my profile status available here: Daveatt
Due to the new scripts publishing house rules, I won't mention the URL here directly. As I value my partnership with TradingView very much, I prefer showing you the way for finding them :)
3. You may also contact me directly for more information
II. Algorithm Builder - Single Trend+
That script is an upgrade of the Single Trend:
The Algorithm Builder - Single Trend+ was made to detect the convergence (also called confluence) of many unrelated indicators, giving a BUY or SELL signal whenever all the selected sub-indicators are converging in the same direction.
The Single Trend gives one single entry per identified trend - unlike the Multiple Trends editions (also available on my scripts page) which may give more than 1 entry per trend.
The traders select the sub-indicators they want, and see in real-time the BUY and SELL triangles being updated.
2.2 Why the Algorithm Builder Single Trend may help you
I worked with many traders during my career, and their feedback about trading is often pretty similar.
They all tried a lot of complicated indicators, losing their capital, and finally getting back to the basics (even to the basic indicators if I might say)
The art is finding a good combination of indicators and setting strict money/risk management rules.
Easy in concept, but more than 90+% of traders lose money on the markets... which teach us that trading is not only about drawing , or using cool indicators but finding ways to ease our psychology while trading.
2.3 The Algorithm Builder trading framework
The sub-indicators (full list on our website) weren't chosen randomly. They're based on a trading method we've developed over the last 6 years - while working with traders and other trading quants.
The Algo Builders are made to detect a convergence - and as such, will give a signal once a trend has been identified.
They're not made to detect reversal but have been designed to give a signal when all sub-indicators are either ALL (green) or ALL (red).
We provide a framework based on indicators we selected because they:
1. make sense to be used altogether
2. work on asset classes like INDEX, CRYPTO, STOCK OPTIONS, FOREX,
3. it may expand your knowledge about what detecting a convergence with pre-selected indicator really means
2.3.1 Supports and Resistances
The indicator displays the main algorithmic supports and resistances according to our trading method.
I think they're relevant for all asset classes, but you're absolutely free to use any different supports/resistances logic if you want to.
I'm not against it because I know that , Fibonacci levels, etc. may work very well also.
2.3.2 Choose your favorite risk management algorithm
1/ Pre-defined Algo S/R method using:
- a supertrend of the stop-loss
- the nearest algorithmic resistances for the take profit levels.
2/ Define your own Stop-loss and Take-profits level in real-time
For what's following, let's assume that 2 is the stop-loss value you inserted in the indicator, and the Algorithm Builder gives a BUY signal.
This is NOT a recommendation at all, only an example to explain how this feature works.
- %Trailing: The Stop-Loss starts 2% away from the entry price - and will move up (because we're on a BUY trade as per our example) every time your trade will gain 2% profit
- Percentage: The Stop-Loss stays static 2% away from the entry price. There is no trailing here
- TP Trailing: This is a very awesome feature. The stop-loss is set 2% away when the trades start.
When the TP1 is hit, the stop-loss will be moved to the Entry price (also called breakeven).
When the TP2 is hit, the SL is moved to the previous TP1 position
- Fixed: Set the Stop-Loss at a fixed position (value should be in currency/units)
Take Profits Management
You can manage up to 2 take profit levels defined as a percentage or price value.
The expected input is in percentage value (for instance, setting the % target of TP1 to 2% will set the TP1 level 2% away from the entry price
2.3.3 Built-in Trade Manager
This is very likely the most loved utility script that we shared on TradingView.
It's included in your Algorithm Builder - Single Trend+, and will certainly help you immensely to analyze your charts and your trades.
We made sure that all the graphical elements on the chart will be updated in real-time whenever our user change anything on the indicator configuration.
You'll also be able to change the Trade Manager labels positions as you wish :)
2.3.5 Built-in Risk-to-Reward Panel
The good stuff doesn't stop here.
You'll notice that this sometimes green (when in a LONG), sometimes red (when in a SHORT) panel at the right of your chart.
It displays for the selected trading algorithmic (see 2.3.2 above), a ton of useful real-time analytics.
- Entry Price: the price when the Algorithm Builder will give a signal.
- The Trade PnL in percentage.
- Entry Stop Loss: Distance (in currency/units) between the selected stop-loss algorithm (percent, trailing, TP trailing, etc.) and the entry price.
- Entry TP1: Distance (in currency/units) between the entry price and the first take profit
- Entry TP2: Distance (in currency/units) between the entry price and the second take profit
- Risk/Reward TP1: Using the Stop-loss distance at entry, and Take Profit 1 at entry to compute the risk-to-reward ratio.
- Risk/Reward TP2: Using the Stop-loss distance at entry, and Take Profit 2 at entry to compute the risk-to-reward ratio.

2.3.6 Hard Exits
Our trading method is known for the hard exits, also called invalidation.
The Single Trend+ includes a hard exit based on a - settings are flexible and you may update them.
Having a stop-loss protecting your trade is a best practice - Protecting your stop-loss also from getting hit is incredible.
We prefer invalidate a few positions, even if sometimes we don't want to. Rather than the market hard exiting on us, and leaving with our hard-working money.
Alerts are enabled for:
- BUY/SELL triangles signals
- Trade Manager (SL, TP1, TP2)
- Hard Exits
III. Pain points that we're trying to solve with our Algorithm Builders
Issue #1 There are many informations / indicators / strategies / backtests / noise. Finding the right ones is not a simple task.
Solution #1 A reliable system that removes the external noise is much needed in trading to stay "in the game".
Issue #2 Trading could be quite stressful - The majority doesn't lose in trading because is hard, but because managing our psychology is one of the hardest things a human can do.
Solution #2 Some ways to reduce the "trading stress" could be: getting better quality signals and trading like a "machine". Forgetting about Twitter and trusting the system you designed.
Issue #3 Trading without strict rules and only based on what we feel, or what we think the market should do is the fastest way to kiss our money goodbye.
Only 1 indicator generally is not enough. Traders generally use a combination of several indicators but they're monitoring them individually.
It's normal then to feel exhausted at the end of the day ^^ (to say the least)... and exhaustion leads to mistakes which leads to..... (I'm sure you got it) ... capital loss.
Solution #3 As a trader, I needed a trading framework and a method. I offer our trading method but they're plenty others out there. We cannot claim obviously it's the best ever ....but let's say we're using those exact same
scripts ourselves for our trading. And this what we've been recommending our clients to trade with for the past years. Also, having a tool detecting the convergence of several indicators and giving 1 unique signal
for BUY/SELL position will save you a lot of time/energy, and perhaps might help you out getting better trading performance.
IV. Resolving a complex puzzle and having fun in the process
Trading has to stay a passion and not (only be) a source of intense stress.
The most successful traders I know are "trading geeks" - literally always looking for optimizing, searching for the best possible entries, setups, indicators, tools, etc.
For them, it's not even about the money anymore, but only about beating their previous performance.
Why are they doing this? Because it's fun
Might appears as a bold statement, but I guarantee that looking for setups is fun.
One of our users even told us, that it's like playing with "Legos" and we couldn't possibly agree more.
V. Designing a system that "makes sense"
Another bold statement now. Brace yourselves ladies and gentlemen
The Algorithm Builders allow to design trading systems quickly. What could takes days/weeks/months to find out... might be now within your reach in less than a few hours.
With a bit of practice, less than an hour might be enough per asset/timeframe to find a system that makes sense to you and adapted to your trading capital and psychology.
Assuming our users read our guides and are fully committed to learning a new way of trading - then we do guarantee you'll be able to design kick-ass trading systems that make sense.
"Making sense" doesn't mean at all it's guaranteed to win, it means you're the one defining the convergence of indicators, using your Algorithm Builder, and observe that most of the time - whenever there is a BUY signal, the are going upwards - whenever there is a SELL signal, it's going downwards.
This is a necessary step to make real progress from a trading analyst perspective - and hopefully could lead to profits.
VI. Algorithm Builder versus the main trader enemy(=psychology)
This indicator has the goal to help solving one of the MAIN issues encountered by traders.
Most of traders realize, they can't perform with only 1 indicator (or 1 price pattern or 1 price action) and need a combination of multiple indicators before getting in a trade.
Far from being a magic pill, if it could at least reduce the stress you have while trading, then we'll consider we made a great job - it's a technical "useless noise remover", and needs to be followed strictly.
Such trust in a trading system can only be built by testing your Algorithm Builder configuration on either:
1. a demo account
2. or a live account with small bids. And then, increasing progressively the bids if your capital increases progressively.
Though, you should still use your common sense. (for instance: if we get a BUY signal right on a big timeframe resistance we're hitting for the first time).
I'm aware this is a new way of trading but for many, and while we cannot foresee the future, neither predict performance, we believe it might save you a lot of time to find good signals.
My maximum level of happiness will be reached the day when our users will contact me and showing me setups being mine.
I'm sure that even I can learn from my users and, we can all learn from each other Algorithm Builder configuration
VII. What is a wrong or bad configuration?
Simply put. If you see that most of your signals react such as described below:
1. a buy triangle predicts, most of the time an upwards move
2. a sell triangle predicts, most of the time a downwards move
3. you estimated yourself the stop-loss needed to give enough room for your trades.
4. take profits based on algorithmic support and resistances or your own take profit method.
So what's a good Algorithm Builder configuration? A configuration you're happy with and makes sense.
A better Algorithm Builder setup is one used in demo or a live account w/ small bids for a few weeks, and you're consistent in your trading performance.
If you have any doubt or question, please hit me up directly or ask in the comments section of this script.
I'll never claim I have the best trading methodology or the best indicators. You only will be the judge, and I'll appreciate all the questions and feedback you're sending my way.
They help me a ton to develop indicators based on all the requests I received.
