Topic: Question about strategy properties
First when i use trailing when did ea start trail at breakeven??and what is the distance of trail? is this than the stop loss ??
Second question i just read the help site cause i want to find how this trail works and by side i saw this text.
In EA Studio you can set protections by using Stop Loss and Take Profit. The protections can be switched on and off. When a protection is enabled EA Studio will use the values you set. EA Studio will set the same values in the exported Expert Advisors.
Stop Loss is a protection in a case the market goes against our position. It is placed always below a long position or above a short position. You can set the Stop Loss to Fixed or Trailing.
Take Profit is a protection that will close a position on profit after the market has moved in the direction we have opened the position. Take Profit is based on a predefined number of points.
Remember that you set the protection values in pips. Be careful with that because a pip has a different value depending on the number of decimal digits in the quotation of your broker.
I thought eastudio detect automatically the digits. So if i have a portfolio with 5 digit broker for eurusd and for example will use this portfolio also with another Broker which have 4 digits. So ea will not automatically calculate the right pips? Did i have to change all? When it will be so how can we handle it that it detect automatically for using for all brokers.
