    ATM strategy on open position

    Is it possible to apply an ATM strategy to an open position?

    In the early stages of my trade I would like to move my stops manually. Once I get to a certain profit level I would like to apply an auto trail stop. Is this possible?

    thanks.

    AFAIK, currently no, although I wish NT7 will

      You can do this by right clicking on the stop.

      More instructions are available at this link:

        Does this work on the Dynamic SuperDOM? I do not have the Static SuperDOM, and I do not get the same full drop down menu when I right click on my stop order. All I get is the option to cancel the stop order. Also remember, I am trying to go from a manual stop to a trailing stop.

          Yes this works with both SuperDOMs.

          Please make sure you are on the latest release 6.5.1000.4

          Also please check the screen shot I have attached to make sure you are right clicking in the area I have circled.

            My SuperDOM does not have the red row right across. I just have the pink Sell STP in the right hand column (see attachment).

              Sorry I took this to mean you were entering the trade with a stop and you wanted to add a trailing stop after the fact.

              If you enter the trade with no stop attached then you cannot use this option.

                Jessica, I noticed that that will not work using the chart trader...that is, if i click on the stop on the chart it will not give me an option to trail.... will this be available in nt7?

                  Hello,

                  Thank you for your note.

                  What will be included on version 7 has not been released yet.

                  I will mention this to our development team for future consideration.
