Im newly using  EA wizard , and have several question : 

 

1. Please tell me what the exactlty meaning of  Trailingstop and TSActivation in EA wizard 2.01? what the difference?

    example 1:  I have position with TP : 10 and SL : 10 and set Trailingstop=1 and TS activation=0. 

    example 2:  same TP/SL but Trailingstop=1 and TSActivation=3.

 

2. I have custom indicator with output 1=UpArrow and output 2=DownArrow

    I want make EA with condition  if arrow UP or  if arrow DOWN . But EAwizard still need operator (>,<, =) –> picture

Hi,

 

1) default values for TS Activation is 0 which means Trailing SL is activated once there is an open profit for your market position. Now ‘Trailing Stop’ value comes into play. It maintains pre-defined pip distance between Last price and Stop-loss order. If you set TS activation to let’s say 10, then EA waits until there is an open profit of 10 pips and then it activates trailing stop-loss function with pre-defined distance ‘Trailing Stop’

 

2) can you attach the indicator or send to support@strategyquant.com so I can verify it and eventually create an example on how to define trading conditions?

Hi,

Thank you

1. Im still confuse about TSActivation maybe you tell me which one is correct

    If I set TSActivation=10 and TrailingStop=6 and then :

    a. EA wait until open order profit 10 pips and then trail stoploss to “order open price + 4 pips” –> so the distance is 6 pips.

    b. Or EA wait until open order profit 10 pips and then trail stoploss to ” order open price + 6 pips”

    Which one is correct?

2. Its just up and down arrow indicator, I want if up arrow then open buy , and then if down arrow then sell.

    Here is the indicator

 

Thanks

Once 10 pips open profit is reached, trailing stop is triggered and stop-loss is set to 6 pips and now it trails SL in your favor with each new pip of additional profit.

 

To catch the arrow signal you can try to use “>” and ‘Other’ -> ‘Number’ -> ‘0’ as shown on the image attached. This should work.

Hi tomas i have more question :
1.what happen actually if Iset ts activation=2 and trail=3 ?
2.what actually happen if I set sl=5 tsactivation=0 and trailingstop=1.
3.if I set SL=5 pips I want EA works like this : if profit 1 pips EA trail stoploss to -4 and then EA profit 2 pips EA trail stoploss to -3 pips etc..

1) tsactivation = 5 just triggers trailing stop-loss function when open profit of 5 pips is reached . It should then move SL to distance defined by trailingstop

2) To me it seems like a conflict since you set SL to 5 pips while you immediately (tsactivation = 0) want to trail SL to -1 pip so SL will be -1 immediately after trade entry

3) Set SL = 5 and Trail SL = 5. This means once there is 1 pip open profit SL will be moved to -4, with OP = 2 pips SL will be moved to -3 etc
