Can TWS do bracket trailing stops in this fashion?

    Sorry if this has been covered before.

    Futures. Enter with initial stop and target for intitiation of trails. If stop is hit, close position. Once trail trigger in profit direction hit, increment trailing stop by trail increment.

    Example. Enter ES long at 1100 stop -4, trail trigger +2, trail 2. 1096 stopped out. 1102 initiates trail trigger and changes stop from 1096 to 1098. 1104 changes trail from 1098 to 1100. Etc...

    A hard stop with a winner allowing to run with a moving stop.

    Thank you.
