    has trailing stop got any relationship with hedge. How does it change it self do you have to set the point you want it to to.

    If the market reverts does it stop on its own to prevent loss by stopping the trade on its own.

    If you right click an open position, you can choose how many pips you want your trailing stop to be. If you choose 50 pips for example, your stop loss is automatically moved by MT4 to "trail" the stop. If your trade goes +50, your stop loss goes to break even. If your trade goes +51, your stop loss becomes +1 and so on.

    Trailing stop loss is often use by traders who want to go for more profits in already profitable trades as they feel they can make more money and at the same time lock their existing profits as well .

    This technique allows an investor to set a limit on the maximum possible loss without setting a limit on the maximum possible gain, and without requiring paying attention to the investment on an ongoing basis.

    Well I like the way you have described trailing stop loss and it is true that it sets the limit to maximum possible gains.Also a trader who is confident about his study and expects his winning streak to continue can take chances with the help of this tool.

    Just try to understand it properly before applying it, or it could also work against you

    Please keep in mind that this feature does not protect against losses. Trailing stops in the FX Trading Station are dynamic.....

    Maybe in this matter, and is moving in the opposite direction against the market or in this case I think that moving the stop loss does not give good results may be a loss

    Trailing stop loss is better when you want to get maximum pips from your profit order. Just let your trade open with trailing stop loss instead of setting a TP.

    But there are times when prices could also take quick reversals, that way, you don't expect to get maximum pips levels

    I look at my friends of commerce that he would use a trailing stop when he saw a market opportunity that is so high with the direction that might be quite clear to him and so he put a trailing stop is
