My understanding (and I’ll ask Petko to confirm) is that when we run the Generator and set the SL to trailing, the system will generate strategies using the best parameters for the trailing SL based on the historical data. So, if our strategy has a trailing SL of say 50 points, when you export it, the EA will have a trailing SL value of 50 points. But, if you then change it in the EA properties once it’s on the chart, to say, 30 points, the trailing SL will then be 30 points. So when a trade opens, the SL will be 30 points from the current price, and remain there, trailing 30 points from the price while the trade remains open.
I hope this makes sense.
