    I have an ea with a 30k lot strategy and trailing stop set to 4 and a trailing stop activation set to 4.. After studying some reports, the profit on about 15% of the trades are around say .30 to 1.20 per trade. If my trailing stop is set to the minimum of 4 pips, how does it then give me less than a dollar on some of the transactions? Is this something possibly due to slippage or am i just not understanding the trailing stop code?

     

    Thanks

    What instrument is that? How many pips is the bid-ask spread? It could be slippage. To be sure we would need more data. You can provide us your EA Wizard file and some transactions data (you can do it in private section of this forum) so we can check that and understand better what happens
