Input Information

Name Type Default Description
StopLossPct Numeric .05 Maximum percent loss of equity the exit will allow.


Short exit based on a percentage of loss.


This strategy calculates a value equal to a percentage above the price of entry. A short exit order will be generated for each bar at the calculated price.

  This strategy is designed to be used with stocks only.  Although percent-based exits are not commonly used with futures because of the high leverage, it is possible to create and save a futures oriented version of this strategy where all stop loss and profit target amounts are multiplied by BigPointValue.
