    Trailing Stop Question

    Ok this is just a hypothetical question so that I might under stand how to use the trailing stop feature:

    Symbol ES

    7 point stop to begin with; entry price 1000.00; profit 1 point (1001.00)

    price moves 0.75 (1000.75) bring stop up 4 points, price moves 0.25 (1001.00) bring stop up 2 points, price moves 0.25 (1001.25) above profit bring stop up to breakeven plus 0.25.

    so I would set the stop strategy like this:

    Auto breakeven trigger - 1.25 - plus 0.25

    Auto Trail:

    Step 1 - stop loss 7.00 - frequency4.0 - profit trigger 0.75

    step 2 - stop loss 3.00 - frequency 2.0 - profit trigger 1.0

    Hi Underground,

    What you try to achieve, can be done to a certain point. Because you've set your Profit Target set to 1 point, it is not possible to move your stop loss when you've reached 1.25 in profit because your Target would be filled already.

    If you send an email to [email protected] with your phone number, I will walk you through.
