Hi,

I'm new to MC, and I would like to use Master strategy (or maybe other strategy) to do the following:


Place an order (limit/stop), set 2 profit targets (4 ticks, 12 ticks) and initial stop (8 ticks).

Once the first target achieved, I want to move the stop for the second target to break even.


How to do that?

How to do that?

On the "chart trading" tab (found by clicking the top-right arrow icon on the chart) find the "master strategy" icon with the cogs on it. Right click "edit" and enter your parameters in there. Make sure you click the "Auto attach to orders" tick box so that it adds the strategy to your trades...

Thanks, I've done all these steps before, however the second stop for the second target does not move to break even when the first target is hit. Any idea why?
