Adding average true range

Hi

Does anyone have any code for an Average True Range stop loss / take profit, that can be plugged directly into the code below. This is cTrader’s sample martingale robot, and I am looking for ways to reduce equity drawdown from 25% down to something for reasonable. FYI any other code that you think might be able to accomplish the same thing such as a trailing profit or loss would also be appreciated. 

THANK YOU very much in advance.

Will
