    Hit Target, Then Sell Half Of Position, Then Trail

    Hi,

    Can someone please explain how to create an ATM strategy performing the following:

    - 20 point stop loss
    - 10 points in profit then sell half of position and then move the stop to breakeven
    - then every 10 points in profit move the stop loss up 10 points

    Thanks.

    Hello,

    Please setup your ATM Strategy as follows:

    1 Target:
    Stop loss: 20
    Profit target: 10

    2 Target:
    Stop loss: 20
    Profit target: 0

    Auto Breakeven:
    Profit trigger: 10
    Plus: 0

    AutoTrail:
    Stop loss: 10
    Frequency: 10
    Profit trigger: 20

      It's fine but please explain me why sometime it works and sometimes not. I note that when the target is filled it doesn't sell half position but the whole position. Other times it works well selling only half position. Where am I wrong putting on the strategy?

        Hello Jonatan,

        You need to split your shares, contracts, etc between targets 1 and 2 so that half will be taken off at target 1.
