    Hello Traders

    Could you please explain me, what was the PROFIT TRAILING in the SQ 3.82? What was the function and how it worked?
    Thank you all and best regards!

    profit trailing is a standard trailing mode that trails SL X pips from the highest price from entry for a long position. The opposite is valid for a short position

    The stop trailing on the other hand was used to trail SL using an indicator for example Move Stop to (CloseDaily(9) + (0.6) * BarRange(161))) on bar close;

    Thank you Tomas

    Can I reach it in the SQX, that I have 2 stop trailing in a strategy like it was in SQ3? I attached a picture.

    i think it was working differently in SQ3

    profit trailing – trailing starts only when the order goes to profit

    stop trailing – trailing starts immediately whatever result you have – loss or profit

    in SQX we have only 1 trailing, but we have also trailing activation and by that you can have strats, where trailing starts later – so it could be “similar” to profit trailing
