 Remember - there MUST be a buyer on the other side who is willing to pay the price to buy the coin. Sometimes there is not, that is why you will see gaps between where the bot could have sold, and where it actually sold. The same is true on the trailing buy side. Remember - there MUST be a buyer on the other side who is willing to pay the price to buy the coin.

 +=== Scenario 5 - Trailing Stop Loss === 
 + 
 +Version 2.2 introduces 2 new methods of stop loss. [[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger|Traling Stop Loss]] and [[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_take_profit_safety_arm|Take Profit Safety]]. The image below demonstrates their differences from standard Stop Loss. 
 + 
 +{{::​trailing-story-visual.png|}} 
 + 
 +== Trailing Stop Loss == 
 + 
 +In the example above ''​[[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger]] = -3''​ and ''​[[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger_arm]] = 1.5''​ 
 +  - If the price never goes above the arm value ProfitTrailer will not sell after 3% loss due to not being armed. 
 +  - If the profit moves above the arm value of 1.5% we flag the trailing stop loss as armed 
 +    - If profit went to 1.85 the trailing_stop_loss line moves up to -1.15. 3% below the peak profit achieved. 
 +    - If the profit subsequently comes down to 0.70 the stop loss line is still at -1.15. 
 +    - If the profit goes to 6% the stop loss line would be at 3% 
 +  - If the profit% now falls and reaches the stop loss line (wherever that now sits) the bot will attempt to sell the coin. 
 + 
 +== Take Profit Safety == 
 + 
 +Take profit Safety is similar to trailing stop loss but uses fixed values rather than dynamically trailing. 
 + 
 +If the profit goes above ''​[[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_take_profit_safety_arm]]''​ we flag the coin as armed. 
 +Then if the profit comes back down below the ''​[[pairs.properties#​DEFAULT_take_profit_safety_fire]]''​ value the bot will attempt to sell the coin.
  
 +If the coin is never armed ProfitTrailer will not do anything if the price reaches the fire value.
