One of the best things about TradeStops is the ability it gives you to create highly customized charts.
For instance, Portfolio Charts allow you to visualize price history of all the open positions held in your TradeStops account. This includes the status of any trailing stop alerts that you’ve added to your Portfolio Charts.
If you’re a TradeStops Plus
subscriber, you also have the ability to view SSI Stop Price, Smart Moving Average, and Low Risk Zone indicators.
