Adjusting your algo trading to volatility with an algo

Vol = any volatility indicator reading of your choosing such as ATR
SLmultiplier = an input variable controlling SL size as a multiplier.
TPmultiplier = an input variable controlling TP size as a multiplier.
Risk = an input variable that is the percentage risk of account balance per trade.

I hope the rest are self-explanatory.

TPsize = Vol * TPmultiplier
SLsize = Vol * SLmultiplier
SLticks = SLsize / TickSize
AmtToRisk = Risk * 0.01 * AccountBalance
Lotsize = AmtToRisk/SLticks/TickValue
