Does MC support adding auto trade management to open positions?

For example I have an open position which has gone past my profit target and I want to let it run but add a trailing stop so that the profits are sort of locked in.

Yes, just drag and drop a trailing stop onto the open position.

Get Account information

It seems like GetRTAccountEquity() does not work in indicators and only work in signals. However, signals have no abilities to plot text on charts.

I want to show account information on charts. How do I accomplish it?

I want to do some calculation and analysis of account equity before plot on the chart, not limit to "order and position tracker page" information.

Due to time constraints, please do not PM me if your question can be resolved or answered on the forum.

Need help?
1) Stop changing things. No new indicators, charts, or methods. Be consistent with what is in front of you first.
2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.
4) Accept responsibility for your actions. Stop looking elsewhere to explain away poor performance.
5) Where to start as a trader? Watch this webinar and read this thread for hundreds of questions and answers.

i_OpenEquity, i_ClosedEquity are close enough but I still need the initial capital information from account at brokers to calculate let's say how many shares to open positions and show on the chart.

I don't want to do this in my code:Input: InitialCapital (100000);

Understood.

Seems like it should be there, but I am not seeing it. Might ask @MultiCharts.

Hi,

However, signals have no abilities to plot text on charts.

I think it is possible.

For instance, this is a signal which indicates "IB" near the price in case of inside bar:
 
Code
if H < H[1] AND L > L[1] {inside bar} then begin
    Value1 = Text_New_s(Date, Time_s, High + 6 * MinMove/PriceScale, "IB");
    Text_SetColor(Value1, DarkBlue);
end;

i_ClosedEquity should give access to the equity on broker's side.
If it does not, what is exactly the problem you see when you plot it or calculate it? What does MC shows?

Or use a very simple function that I have created. https://futures.io/download/multicharts/1147-download.html?view
Print Text Horizontally, Vertically, any color, any size, special graphics all within an Indicator OR Signal.
All from one line.
ie PrintText_S(date,time_s,High+3,1,2,black,15,True,"SHORT",False); // "Short" is written Vertically above the price

In the below, as I test a bar, I build a string variable with information and print this vertically near the bar ie some bars may just be IB (inside bar) others may be IB and SB (Smash Bars) so I print both.
