How Does The Advanced Protection Work?
Our version of the Advanced cTrader Forex protection tool will protect all of your positions created manually, by automated trading systems or when a pending order becomes a position. The protection this tool offers is listed below and can be applied to a single symbol or all symbols, you can also apply the protection to an automated trading system by its label name.
- Single or all symbol protection.
- Attach the protection to an existing automated trading system.
- 5 Take Profit targets with % volume close.
- A break-even stop-loss.
- A trailing stop-loss.
- A steal stop-loss to hide from the broker.
Logging: is this is set to YES then in the cBot log it will log all events that happen using this tool to manage your positions.
Single vs All Symbol Management
If the All Symbols setting was left at NO then the tool will only manage the symbol for the instance and no other symbols, this will allow you to add multiple symbols and each one will be managed separately. If ALL symbols are set to YES then you do not need to add additional symbol instances as all symbols that are traded will be protected by the same settings.
How To Attach An ATS?
An ATS is short for an automated trading system and this tool allows protection to your existing systems by using the unique label name. To use this feature you need to open positions with a unique label in your ATS, all of our products already do this, to attach protection to an ATS, you need to turn this feature on as well as enter the label name for the positions that need to be protected. This feature can be applied to all ClickAlgo automated trading systems.

How Do The Take Profit Targets Work?
There are 5 take profit targets which allow a position to close a percentage of its volume when pre-set pip targets are reached, you can use just a single target or up to a maximum of 5, to turn a target off you just set the Target (pips) to zero and to completely close a position just set the Close % to 100.
An example setup would be where a position closes 50% of its volume when a position reaches 10 pips in profit and then closes 100% of the volume when the position reaches 20 pips in profit, as all the volume is closed the position will close.
Take Profit Target #1
Take Profit Target #2
- Target 20 pips
- Close 100%
Take Profit Targets #3-5
How The Break-Even Stop Loss Works?
The break-even stop loss used is a standard feature with all our trading systems, it will be activated when any position is x pips in profit and the stop loss will be moved to a financial break-even if the extra pips are left at the default value of zero. A financial break-even covers all the fees involved from the broker when an order is filled.
- Extra pips: this is additional pips the stop loss will be moved in profit past the entry price to lock-in extra profit.
How The Trailing Stop Loss Works?
The trailing stop loss feature is activated when the gaining pips reach the trigger value, the stop-loss will be moved x pips behind the price as defined in the Steps (pips) setting and as the price moves in profit the stop loss trails behind this price and locks in the extra profit, once the price retraces the step pips and hits the stop loss the position is closed in profit.
How The Stealth Stop Loss Works?
The stealth stop loss feature is very simple, it just closes any position when it is losing x pips as defined in the stop loss setting. The stop loss is not sent to the broker, but instead stored in memory in the cBot and a request is sent to the broker to close the position instead.
