Trailing stop loss

#1
I know that trailing stop loss increases with increasing price according to the values entered. I want to know how does it work in a short selling position. As in a shorting situation the stop loss will be higher than my purchased price, will the trailing stop loss increase with increase in price of the stock. If that's the case then I could increase my losses

Dear friend AtifHussain,
stop loss will remain fixed, it will only change if u r in profit :)

example 1). if u buy at Rs 100, n stop loss is given at 95, n if price reaches 99 or 98 or 97, stoploss will remain at 95, but if price reaches 101 or 102 or 103 then stoploss will move to 96 or 97 or 98 respectively :)

example 2). if u sell at rs 100, n stop loss is at 105, n if price reaches 101 or 102 or 103, stoploss will remain at 105, but if price reaches 99 or 98 or 97 then stoploss will move to 104 or 103 or 102 respectively :)

I hope this helps :)
