How to use Trailing stop in cTrader

Hi, I have been searching for how to manually apply trailing stops on cTrader platform. You know, like how you can right click on a trade in MT4/MT5 and simply select and apply a trailing stop value to that trade. I cant find that in cTrader no matter where I look except by using an EA/robot.

Please let me know if there is a way I can do this. Thanks

Does it mean that this is not possible? Can someone please respond with a solution? I really like the cTrader and cAlgo but without trailing stops, no FX trader is complete. Something has to be done about this soonest possible.

Thank you.

Ok admin. I wil be checking here regularly. I need trailing stop to start working fully on cTrader. I am actually in the process of completely dumping MetaTrader and switching to cTrader and without trailing stop, I cant complete my transition to cTrader.

Thank you.

Yes. Please refer to Sample Buy Trailing and Sample Sell Trailing Robots in cAlgo as examples to code trailing stops.

Where is volume indicator?

The trailing stop is very important to me. I thought to open an account with this ctrader platform but find trailing stop, volume indicator is missing. So if these weakness is fixed i will open my account and will start trading. I need a volume indicator like dukascopy. mt4 also has it. why not in ctrader?

Trailing stop will be available very soon. In the meantime you may use the sample robot "Sample Trailling Stop" in cAlgo to trail your open positions by supplying the position ID as an input parameter.

more than trailling stops


I have used cTrader for about 2 months now and plan to stay within this product as my company does not yet support MT5 which I love a lot. However cTrader has its' advantages for example "typing for choosing current symbol, in some cases better than in MT5 order handling and inplace template deletion\saving, to name a few. What I would like to see in future updates:

+ trailling stops of couse. About a year passed since you first time said "soon" :)

+ ability to set points to risk in each position, not only fixed price for SL. Drop down list with predefined numbers like 10, 20, 30, 50, 100, user defined pips to set SL

+ being able to hide unnecessary data while trading. For example I don't really need to know current drowdown and equity, I would like to hide that info. Pips are all I need to see.

Please respond with a possible timeframe to implement those 3 features. Please use "matter of weeks, matter of months" rather than just soon :) 

Thank you! cTrader is a good terminal
