    Drag the stop loss line (default is green) and it will auto-calculate the risk & reward rate and amount of volume for the position size. You also can update the volume by manual input, when you change the below value, the left edit icon will be enabled so that you can update the values.


    Support for Buy & Sell Limit Orders

    The tool now supports both buy and sell limit orders with an expiry date/time.

    Use Percentage

    If you want to use the percentage based on your balance, just click the Use Percentage check box or it will use the actual amount value. Note: if your account balance is small the volume calculated will not go lower than the lowest position size allowed for the symbol.


    Risk & Reward Rate

    You can set the risk vs reward for your stop loss and take profit, so a Risk/Reward rate of 2 will be where your take profit is twice your risk, when you click on the sell button the stop loss and take profit will be automatically calculated using this ratio.


    Success Rate

    The success rate is based on all of your history orders, it will calculate the success orders for the rate, and the "Trailing Stop" is just a native option for cTrader to create an order to function, I just pass this when you create the order.


    Auto Take Profit Button

    There are 3 levels for set auto take profit, which means you can use 4 conditions for taking profit, for example:

    • Take 50% partial take profit after getting above 60% of the profit target.

    • Take 50% partial take profit when the price of the symbol reaches 60 or for Forex something like 1.72245

    winson tp 2

    You can modify the above values in runtime, it will take effect immediately if you have started the take profit button. It will also reset all values after stopping the cBot. If profit 1 then will not be taken to profit again, that means only run once time for each profit condition unless stopping the auto profit and starting again, will reset all condition statuses.


    Update: There is now support for pending orders to have automatic take profit applied when they become market orders.

    Update: You can also set a take profit condition in pips, so you can choose a % of the total, the price and also the number of pips.


    Using Volume for Taking Profit

    Instead of using 50% or another percentage in the Take Profit box, you can use a value like 1000 (1K) which is the volume of the position.

    But don’t forget must tick the green checkbox to enable this take-profit condition.


    Set the order label for taking a profit, this is because maybe there are multiple orders at the same time, so you need to define which order do you want to use auto-take profit, and if you use this tool to create the order, it will auto set the order label here.

    How to Manage Trades from Another cBot?

    You can also use this tool to manage trades that are opened from another cBot simply by setting a label name when the order is submitted and using this same label name in the field above for the label of order to take a profit.


    Set a Break-Even

    This tool will also allow a break-even to be applied to your trades, again, you can use either a percentage of the total account balance or a fixed price.
