Hi Gary yes!! Market will be volatile but it helps manage the risk better

Trailing Stop Loss feature would make me immediately go for the Plus account. It’s a must have.

Hi FT,

I was reading about TSL in etoro - feature looks good and is there any option or future development pipeline to implement the same in FT.

Trailing Stop Loss (TSL) is an exciting feature we have added in response to feedback from our valued trading community.

A trailing stop loss sets the stop-loss order at a fixed amount of pips above or below the market price, depending on whether the position is SELL or BUY. As long as the market is moving in your favor, the stop loss will move with it, maintaining the same locked-in pip distance from the current market rate.

For example, if you set TSL for a BUY position, the stop loss will rise with the market in one-pip increments. This is why it’s called a ‘trailing’ SL; as the price rises, the stop loss rises with it. However, if the market is moving in the opposite direction i.e., if the price is falling, the stop loss will not change and a close order will be submitted when the stop loss rate is reached.
