Moving Stop-Loss mechanism + alerts to MT4/MT5

"How to code moving stop-loss mechanism", is one of the most often repeating questions in private messages I receive, so just to focus on this mechanism, I made a spin-off from my previous script: TradingView-Alerts-to-MT4-MT5-dynamic-variables-NON-REPAINTING.

The logic here moves the stop-loss each time a trade is running and a new pivot high/low is detected. When such event occurs (UpdateLongStopLoss or UpdateShortStopLoss), stoploss_long or stoploss_short mutable variable is modified. And it needs to be coded inside strategy.exit() line as "stop=stoploss_long" or "stop=stoploss_short". Entries are pretty straightforward - on Stoch crosses.

Last lines of the script show how to wrap information about such updates and send send alerts to MetaTrader via TradingConnector for execution in Forex/indices/ commodities /crypto markets via MetaTrader. Please note that "tradeid=" variable must be passed with each alert, to let MetaTrader know which trade to modify. SLMOD, TPMOD are recently added commands, along with BE (as in "move stop-loss to breakeven" - but that's another topic).

Please disregard strategy backtest results, as this script is for coding education purposes only. However, it seems with the stop-loss mechanism enabled, the results are even better, than in original version of the script :)
