    help with ATM

    embarrassed to ask for this simple assistance .. I am trying and not succeeding

    initial entry of 2 contracts
    the 1st contract will have profit of 4ticks and stop loss of 10
    the 2nd contract will have profit of 10ticks and stop loss of 10
    the STOP strategy:
    after the 1st contract is filled the second remaining will jump to stoploss of BE-4ticks
    then if the profit is 8ticks the stop will jump to BE.

    I am succeeding to have the BE-4ticks but not with the second jump

    Hello, and thank you for posting in our forum.

    Below I have included screen shots of your desired ATM parameters.

    How this will work is after your first target is hit (4 ticks in your favor), your remaining stop will move to break even minus 4 ticks. Next, after 8 ticks in your favor, your stop will move to break even. A frequency of 999 is used to ensure that this second trail only happens once.

    Below are the ATM 201 and 301 video tutorials.

    Please let us know if we may assist again in the future.

        it seams that the first target is not filled. is just moves the stop but does not sell the 1st contract.

        ?

          Hello, and thank you for your reply.

          Your profit target orders are limit orders. Therefore the price could have been touched (moving your stop order up) but the profit target was not filled since there was not enough volume at that price level.

          Please let me know if you have any other questions regarding this.
