Topic: How to set a Trailing Stop activated at breakeven

Is it possible and how to set a Trailing Stop activated only when trade reaches breakeven?
(with an additional fixed Stop always in place)

Re: How to set a Trailing Stop activated at breakeven

Trailing Stop is activated when the profit reaches the set level.
You can use Trailing Stop set on the Closing Point slot together with Stop Loss set in the Strategy Properties.

Sorry I'm still not clear:
"Trailing Stop is activated when the profit reaches the set level."
I don't see a setting for 'Set profit level' in Closing Point/Trailing Stop

When you set "Trailing Stop" it doesn't start trailing immediately after the market starts moving in your direction. It first wait the market making the set Trailing Stop points in your direction.

For example, if you set Trailing Stop 200 pints and open long at 1.2200. The trailing stop will be initially set at 1.2000 and will wait for the market to reach 1.2400. Once the market reach that level the Trailing Stop will jump to 1.2200. It will move up if the market continues going up. (Of course you always lose the spread.) 

Taking that into account TS is somewhat similar to Break Even, but it continues in your direction on further market move.
