Adding a Trailing Stop in JForex

This article explains how to enable the Trailing Stop for stop loss and entry stop orders in JForex.

A trailing stop, if applied, changes the trigger price of entry stop and stop loss orders when the price moves in a certain direction and beyond a pre-defined threshold. If the price does not move in the direction that is required by the trailing stop or the price does not move beyond the threshold, the trigger price is not changed.

ANYTIME you edit the trailing order, the current market price is defined as the base price (the exception being a trailing stop loss order for a pending entry order).
