I am using the MetaTrader 5 Web Terminal, and I am not able to find the 'Trailing Stop' command in the contextual menu of my orders.
Does it mean there is NO trailing stop feature in the Web version of MT5?
Trailing stop is operating by the desktop terminal (not by the server).
As the nature of the Web terminal use case (as well as mobile terminals) do not assume persistent and stable environment (including browser and internet connection), we cannot implement this feature.
Otherwise we will receive lot of complains from users who's trailing stop was not triggered because of browser was crashed or web terminal's tab was accidentally closed.
That's fair. Thank you for the clear explanation.
I have the same problem, i.e ".. I am not able to find the 'Trailing Stop' command in the contextual menu of my orders". I don't understand "Trailing stop is operating by the desktop terminal (not by the server)". In my understanding, my desktop M/C is the 'client', not the 'server'. So can you please explain? Any help much appreciated.
A browser (or web terminal) is not suitable for performing trailing stop function.
If you need that functionality use the Desktop terminal.
