Can you open a position with a trailing stop when you are using a market order (because the market is closed or I am setting a purchase point at a level away from the current market price)?

As far as I can see you can not open a new position with a trailing stop. Currently I am having to go into the position after it has opened to manually change it to a trailing stop.


Thank you!
