In the example below you can see a trade for EGLE stock. The purchase price was $160, and the position was closed at $217 by a take profit stop at 35%. A protective stop loss was set at $136 ($160 - 15% = $136), and a trailing stop loss was adjusted each time the stock moved higher. The last trailing stop loss adjustment was at a high price of $215, with the following calculation: $215 - 20% = $173:

This example shows how stop values will be calculated if an ATR unit is selected. The purchase price is $160, and the position was closed by a take profit stop at $220 ($160 + 5 ATRs * $12). The protective stop loss equals $136 ($160 - 2 * $12 = $136). The trailing stop loss is adjusted each time the stock moves higher. The last trailing stop loss adjustment was at high price $215, with the following calculation: $215 - 2 * $12 = $179:
