Enter it as a strategy, go studies > add strategy > breakeven stop then enter the amount that will trigger it and wether that amount is per contract or for the entire position, dont forget to enable automation

If it were me I would use a “trailing stop” strategy, set to keep 10% or 5% of the profit after the threshold. That way it’ll be like a break even stop, that pays for commission and slippage. Breakeven will still cost you slippage and commission not really having a “breakeven” effect

Yeah I use a trailing stop as well. I use this system and works very well.
