Trailing stop

Hi,
Suppose, for example, I have a strategy that enters long at 1900 and has a target of 1905 and a stop of 1898. When it gets to 1902.50 I want to cancel the original stop and replace it with a trailing stop so that my trailing stop is 2.5 points below my target. These numbers are just to help explain what I want to do. Basically, I want to enter at a certain point with a target and stop order. Then when my profit reaches a certain level I want to drop in a trailing stop.
Is this doable? Does anyone have some code they'd be willing to share?
Thanks ... Ed

You can easily do this, but you need to code it manually. Also you would need to decide, which trailing stop you would like to use

-> Parabolic Stop
-> Supertrend
-> Gann Hi-Lo Activator
-> Chandelier stop
-> 3 bar trailing stop
-> BBandsDots
-> Brain trend

You will find most of these in the download section of the forum and can use them with your strategy.

Hi,
Thanks for the quick response. I guess I wasn't clear. I am looking to do this in my own strategy using ninjascript.
Thanks ... Ed

You can do that in NT without any coding.
Just define an ATM Strategy and you can define a trailing stop strategy.

This is what I understood. When you code your own strategy, you can access existing indicators and use them for your trailing stop. Of course you can code your own variations of trailing stops as well.

What you wish to do is easily feasible.
