It would be very valuable to have the ability to establish a Trailing Stop (3 parameters -- Trigger, Stop Loss and Distance) directly in the Spreadsheet for Trading that would only activate after a Buy / Sell order is activated. Please.
Thanks

To accomplish the same, you can use cells J80 and J81, then trail the stop with the Trade Management By Study study that references a subgraph in the Spreadsheet System for Trading study.

Thanks for the info. But it is far too complicated. And more troubling is the thought that the trailing stops are on my (client) side with Sierra - and my Internet and Transact go down and/or disconnect at least two time a day every day. In another request I've asked Sierra to implement broker (server side) trailing stops with Transact (my broker). Until that happens I'm stuck at the PC for trading as the risk is far too high. Come on Sierra - this is a big deal. Thanks

I get around the internet down issue by using a USA based virtual server.
