    ATM trailing stop strategies

    Hello,

    Very new to Ninja trader. I had a quick question and setting up my ATM stop strategies.

    System 1

    Trading the ES

    20 pt stop
    goes to breakeven plus/ minus 1 tick after 20 pts move
    I want to trail my stop every 20 pts until stopped out or MOC.

    example long at 1200
    BE +/- 1 tick at 1220
    prices gets to 1240 stop moves to 1220
    prices get to 1260 stop moves to 1240
    price keep moving....

    Sorry if the question has been answered before.
    Thanks for your time

    Rico

    Hi Rico, thanks for your post.

    You can set up a trailing stop to do this. You would need to pick how much to trail your stop by, but I set up something like this:

    https://clauber.tinytake.com/tt/NDE2ODgzNl8xMjkxNjc2Mw

    That stop strategy will start trailing by 10 ticks after 20 ticks in profit. It will check if the stop should be moved every 20 points (20*4 ticks)

    Test this out on the sim account and make sure it's what you need out of the stop strategy.

    Kind regards,
