Position Size Calculator for ThinkOrSwim

$4.99

The ThinkOrSwim Position Size Calculator is a ThinkScript that calculates position size, entry, and stop based on a defined risk percentage. The script automatically imports your account’s available CASH balance and allows you to set your risk as a percentage of that amount. You may also choose to override that option by setting a hard risk limit in the study’s options. This is best used with Live Traders (Jared Wesley’s) 3-Bar Play. You can simply hover over the entry bar, and the study tells you precisely where to set your stop and target based on a 2:1 reward:risk ratio! If you follow your rules, you’ll do better!

Description

Options include position direction (long or short), risk percent, stop padding, and hard risk amount.

The output displays MaxRisk, SOffset (stop offset), TOffset (target offset), S (stop), T (target), and S (number of shares). The default output is formed based on values from the currently forming candle. Hover over the candle in which you intend to enter the trade for the values to make your order.

Calculations are made in the following manner:

  • Stop is last candle low/high with padding
  • Stop offset is open – stop
  • Target offset is stop offset * risk multiple
  • Target is stop offset * risk multiple plus/minus open
  • Position size is the either risk / stop offset OR account balance / close (rounded down)
    • If the suggested size is greater than the maximum number of shares your account may purchase, the lesser of the two numbers is used. The color of the position size will turn red if the size uses the maximum.

There are other, more robust solutions out there…but they’re also much more expensive. I’m selling this on the cheap because I think it’s so very important. Most traders fails because they don’t practice good risk management. This takes the guess work and emotion out of the trades. All you have to do is find the setups!
