Dollar Trailing SX (Strategy)

image\trumpet2.gif Disclaimer

The Dollar Trailing SX strategy is used to set a trailing stop to exit a short position when prices move up a specified number of dollars (in terms of either a total position or share/contract amount) from the lowest price since entry.  

This strategy uses a built-in stop that will exit within any bar (except the bar of entry) whenever the trailing stop amount is reached.   For more information about dollar trailing exits, see Dollar Trailing.

This strategy will only generate an exit on a short position.

  The calculation for this strategy does not take commission or slippage into account.
