Proper Sequence of Executions

Hi Guys,
I'm totally a newb to this site and programming. I have been trying to solve this problem for a couple of days now , and i would greatly appreciate any sort of guidance on this subject. I'm missing a line of code that will trigger my "trailing stop" after my "target". Is there a way to always have "TrailingStop" triggered after "Target"?
Here's What i have as of now for long:

//Entry
If Condition1 then buy this bar at close;

//Exits
If marketposition=1 then
begin
Sell ("StopLoss") at xxx Stop;
If condition2 then sell ("Target") (CurrentShares/2) shares at close;
Sell ("TrailingStop")current shares at next bar at xxx stop;
End;

Thank you in advance for your help.

Further Info


If it helps, all the buy and sell triggers are based on bar patterns and not set by $ amount target or stops. That's why sometimes "TrailingStop" is triggered before the "Target" is met.

arashf,

you would need a flag that enables the trailing stop when your target conditions become true. Something like this might work with using a boolean variable called UseTrailingStop:

 
Code
//Entry
If Condition1 then buy this bar at close;

//reset the flag
if marketposition < 1 and UseTrailingStop then
UseTrailingStop = false;

//Exits
If marketposition=1 then
begin
Sell ("StopLoss") at xxx Stop;
If condition2 then 
begin
UseTrailingStop = true;
sell ("Target") (CurrentShares/2) shares at close;
end;
if UseTrailingStop then
Sell ("TrailingStop")current shares at next bar at xxx stop;
End;
Regards,
ABCTG
