Trailing Stops in ProRealTime

Question

When I attach a trailing stop to a position in ProRealTime , it initially calculates it based on the entry price but then it doesn't follow the price up. It just stays static. Any ideas?

When you say "it calculates it" what is the it you are referring to? I assume you are saying the stop doesn't trail, or are you reffering to margin recalculating. Please clarify.

Make sure you have the 'Trailing Stop'  mode activated in the 'Options'  >  'Trading options'  in the order interface section.

Thanks for the replies and I need to apologise. It was working I just wasn't understanding how the steps part of it worked. My next question though is: How can I set the step size in my coding with ProrealTime?. I can set the Trailing Distance fine but not the steps.

    • Apropos of market abuse, it must be good to play golf with Orange Fury and place your bets before the tweets ... Unknown actors may have made billions from the turmoil Donald Trump has created in the markets through erratic tweets, shoot-from-the-hip foreign policy, and the trade war with China, according to a new report. A Vanity Fair deep-dive into stock market activity has uncovered several instances where advantageous trades were made suspiciously close to market-moving events.   https://uk.finance.yahoo.com/news/mystery-traders-made-1-8bn-191335812.html
