Trailing Stop Loss

Using a trailing stop loss allows the trader to maximize profits on a stock as it continues its trend. It is analogous to raising or lowering a ladder to the next floor as a stock moves in that direction.

Additional Comments:

A trailing stop loss will follow behind the closing price of the stock each day, ratcheting up as the stock/option price climbs.

A trailing stop will only reset higher and will not move down.
