NEW YORK, Sept. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- HEFFX offer several types of orders that are designed to protect investors from significant losses. The most commonly used order is a stop loss, there is another type of order that should to be considered, it is the trailing stop.
Trailing stops are fast becoming a solid tool for active traders.
A trailing stop and a regular stop loss appear similar as they equally provide for the protection of the traders capital should a stock's price begin to move against the trade, but that is where their similarities end.
The trailing stop offers a clear advantage in that it is more flexible in nature than a fixed stop loss. It is an attractive alternative because it allows the trader to continue protecting his capital if the price drops. But, as soon as the price increases, the trailing feature kicks in, allowing for an eventual protection of profit while still reducing the risk to capital.
To better understand a trailing stop, consider that the trailing value is either a fixed percentage of 5% or a fixed spread of 35 cents. Either way, the trailing stop will follow the day's high by the pre-defined amount.
The important part is that once set, it cannot fall back and if the last price drops lower than the trailing-stop value, the stop loss is triggered.
