    how to set manual trailing stop during trade

    Once in a trade I would like to change my stop to a trailing stop (stop point might change at any given moment - eg, on ES maybe start with 3/4 pt, and change to 1/4 point - so for example if I am long Emini S&P 500 at 14800 and I want to add a trailing stop at 1 point (eg, at this time it would be at 1479); then later ES rises to 1482 I want to change TS to trigger at1/4 (eg stop triggers at 1481.75 at this moment if it happens)

    how would I do this manually?

    or if it is easy to create a strategy...Im new to this

    Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you have entered a position with an ATM Strategy attached please use the steps I have provided below to add an Auto Trail. Keep in mind this will need to be done within the SuperDOM as opposed to Chart Trader.
    • Right mouse click within the Sell or Buy column on your Stop Loss order
    • Right Click again on your Stop Loss Order
    • Auto Trail Properties
    • Input your Auto Trail Parameters
    • Click OK
    • Right mouse click on your Stop Loss Order
    • Enable Auto Trail

    I have also provided a link below to our Help Guide that goes over the Auto Breakeven and Auto Trail features.

    Please let me know if I may be of further assistance.
