    hi guys,

    I have a simple strategy that trails the position entered into with a trailing stop. instead of activating as soon as the price moves 1 pip in favour, i want it to start once the trade is onside by 10 pips, so the step is 10. then once at breakeven I want the stop to trail the price by a step of 5 points, is this possible? I am a newbie but cant find anything that illustrates this on the forums at present.


    currently all i have in my code at present for my stops and targets is below:

    I suggest not to use the built-in SET STOP pTRAILING instruction, it’s not possible to set a breakeven and the step is 1 and cannot be changed.

    You’d rather resort to coded trailing stop snippet than can be found throughout this forum and mainly here

    If you have a strategy but don’t know how to add it, then post your code and ask… someone will help you asap.


    You can also browse this file to find functions and examples that may help you when coding
