Hi *. I just started play with my virtual account at Thinkorswim and I don't understand how TrailingStop works. Is the number that I see there the percentage for which I will sell after it gets down to that, or is just the value of the stock? An example would be very helpful, but I was not able to make it work, and I lost a lot of (virtual) money because a stock went down by 5% today. Also, from the site: "thinkorswim does not recommend trailing stop orders, as there is no guarantee that your order will be filled at or near the designated stop price, which is especially dangerous in rapidly rising or falling markets. In addition, trailing stop orders will accentuate volatility in rough markets." So what shall I use instead? THANKS!
