    These are great videos and have helped me a lot! I have a question RE: trailing stops: in the beginning, the example shows an order for stock at 100, with $90 T.S. Does this mean my stock with trail the mkt price BY the $90? Or would I enter the number $10 instead. Thank you for your great modules!

    I was wondering how well trailing stop losses work for option plays. I have used trailing stop losses for multiple stock plays and they work great. Is there any difference in the use of a trailing stop loss on an option play?

    David, loved the right click and custom order! I knew there was a way to do it, but couldn’t figure it out. Thanks!

    Thank you so much, Dave for showing us this method. I used it today for the first time and wow, what a relief. I didn’t have to exit manually, I was stopped out at a profit. I kept the stop fairly tight and was still able to make a sizable gain. This has been my challenge…to exit when I really know I should, but don’t. The trailing stop has given me my confidence back. I no longer have to deal with my emotions when it’s time to exit the trade. Just set it and forget it!

    Thank you very much. Very informative. Can you please do a video on Trailing stop with options on TOS. I get confused on what the stop is linked to. Also, what are the little steps when choosing to use a trailing %, a dollar amount, or those steps? what are they?
    Thanks , Ronno
