 +=== Scenario 5 - Trailing Stop Loss === 
 + 
 +Version 2.2 introduces 2 new methods of stop loss. [[pairs_config#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger|Traling Stop Loss]] and [[pairs_config#​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_config#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger]] = -3''​ and ''​[[pairs_config#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger_arm]] = 1.5''​ 
 +  - If the profit% moves above the arm value of 1.5% we flag the trailing stop loss as armed. ProfitTrailer will continue to make note of the highest profit% reached. 
 +    - If the highest profit% was 1.85% the bot is looking for a 3% drop before it will sell. i.e the profit % falling to -1.15% (1.85-3=-1.15) 
 +    - If the highest profit% was 5% the stop loss would begin as the price falls below 2%. (5-3=2) 
 + 
 +**Note:** 
 +  - If ''​[[pairs_config#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger_arm]]''​ is NOT set Trailing Stop Loss is armed automatically.  
 +  - If ''​[[pairs_config#​DEFAULT_trailing_stop_loss_trigger_arm]]''​ is set, and the price never goes above the arm value ProfitTrailer will not sell due to not being armed. 
 +  - If trailing stop loss is used in DCA it is affected by ''​[[dca_config#​DCA_stop_before_complete]]''​
  
 +== 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_config#​DEFAULT_take_profit_safety_arm]]''​ we flag the coin as armed.
 +Then if the profit comes back down below the ''​[[pairs_config#​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.
