I need some help building an ATM for trailing a position once in profit. I understand the profit target and stop loss. Itís the second NT8 step I donít get. I trade the micros, letís say a $100 profit, triggers the trailing ATM. The for every $25 in profit after that ($125), trail it in, $150, trail it in again. Repeat until weíre stopped out. How do I set up these parameters.
