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.

    • "Nobel Prize for Science winner Professor Levitt of Stanford - one of the few who called this thing correctly back in February - with a population fatality rate of 0.04 to 0.05%, largely regardless of lockdown Now calls it again - on how science has let us all down dreadfully:"   https://video.twimg.com/ext_tw_video/1277543603762585600/pu/vid/1280x720/iFYywrcFxG1CLAkO.mp4?tag=10
    • The reality, testing now up to 90,000 a day (many times greater than in March) = 'new' cases also up. If you came into contact with a cold or flu virus even months ago (and probably were asymptomatic) you would be a confirmed 'new' case. But new hospital admissions and new deaths are still negligible. Compare March with now on the chart. Second lockdown starting soon. you are being played
    • interesting that Schlossberg points to discipline and flexibility - which at first "sight" sounds like a trade-off
