Is this possible in NT8? (ATM)

Hi all,

I do not know how to program, but there is one thing (well there are lots but... NM lol) that really pisses me off in Ninja's ATM strategies and that is that the rules for trailing a stop are based on ticks in profit... if there is one thing I learned trading is that targets need to conform to market reality, not the other way around, hence I wish to know if it is possible to code an NT8 add on that sets stop trailing rules in relation to targets' order locations.
Example: t1 is set manually, after entry, to 20 ticks from entry (ATM was used to bracket upon entry and then adjusted) -> rule is: if current price is (T1-10) go to breakeven for S1, (T1-5) jump S1 to (current price-2) etc.

I hope my question is clear. Any and all input is appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,
