The TrailingStopSX strategy generates a Short Exit signal when the High price exceeds the Trailing Stop value. This value is based on Stop Price which is equal to prior Entry price plus specified offset. The offset can be measured in percent, actual price points, or ticks (see input parameters' description for details). The Trailing Stop value lowers the Stop Price as the market price decreases; if however the market price rises, the Stop Price remains unchanged.
