Use the trailing stop-loss

This tutorial shows you how to use the Trailing Stop-Loss. By the end of this guide, you will have an active working Trailing Stop-Loss, and will know the ways to configure it.


Before you begin, ensure that you have the following prerequisites:

  • You’ve got a Cryptohopper account
  • You’ve got a working Hopper that’s funded and buys automatically. Otherwise follow this setup tutorial and decide if you want to copy signals or install a strategy.

Configuring the Trailing Stop-loss for all trades#

  1. Click the “Config” dropdown in the menu bar on the left and click on “Baseconfig”.
  2. Under the “selling” category, click “Trailing Stop-Loss” on the baseconfig menu.
  3. Toggle the “Enable” switch.
  4. Enter a “Trailing stop-loss percentage”. This determines how much % the price should drop to sell the asset automatically.
  5. Enter a “Arm trailing stop-loss at” percentage. Your hopper will be armed to sell your coin if it hits this % and will sell when the price drops the % configured in step 4.
  6. Enable “Use trailing stop-loss only” if you only want to sell with the “Trailing Stop-Loss”, and disable your take profit.
  7. Click “Save”.

Adjusting the Stop-loss per position#

  1. On the dashboard, click the “info” button on one of the positions you want to adjust.
  2. You will see a pop-up. Click “Settings” in the top menu of the pop-up.
  3. Click on the “Trailing Stop-Loss” dropdown menu.
  4. Enable the Trailing Stop-Loss and configure it from here like step 4 & 5 in the previous section.
