I have used several trailing stop products over the years and this is by far the best trailing stop on the market. It does the job and is not overly complicated. I highly recommend it.


Update 2 months later. Of the several I have tried, the Envelopes Trailing Stop is the best for me as it trails the shorts and longs separately: upper band for short stop loss, lower band for long stop loss.

I currently run this on about 30 charts as my trading system allows me to trade any of the currency pairs and CFDs with long term trends on D1 charts, Renko charts, and from time to time some other auto traders.

I work a full time job in remote places in the oil and gas industry so it is important to me that I have trailing stops working 24 hours. This allows me to trade the Asian, European, and US market hours with confidence that a Envolopes Trailing Stop will watch my back.
