Trailing stop options?


Recommended Posts

I thought a trailing stop would only require Distance and Step inputs. Does anyone know why the iPad app still displays a Stop Level input? The chart displayed a red line for the Stop Level at 210 but no line at the 1500 distance. Is it using two stops? E.g. the Stop Level initially then at some point the Distance instead?

Not sure about the app platform but the mt4 will allow this as well, it means you can have an initial tighter stop and a larger trailing one, the trailing one only comes into view once it has overtaken the fixed stop level which disappears.

    • Dear All, On the September 22 I could not sell Presto automation stock $PRST.  I have reported that to IG helpdesk, had multiple calls etc. It is not obvious where this process is going and I need my refund money ASAP. I have sent the screenshots etc.
