How do Take Profit and Trailing Stop correlate with each other?

When Trailing Stop is not switched on then the Take Profit value will close the open positions once the Take Profit is being reached.

If Trailing Stop is switched to ON then both functions will be active simultaneously. You will see that then the Trailing Stop will take control in most situations and once logged-in, because it was triggered, it will most probably close the trade.

This happens only when the Trailing Stop is correctly adjusted for the instrument traded.

From time to time you will see that a trade is being closed by the Take Profit functionality and not by the Trailing Stop. In this case most of the time the market moved faster than the Trailing Stop, so that the Take Profit was able to close the position.

And there is another possible situation that you might see. The Trailing Stop has logged in but the deal is not colored red but has a Stop Loss value set in the Terminal. If you discover such a trade you will most probably find that the trade was closed to a better value than the Trailing Stop was set to.

So after all Trailing Stop and Take Profit work hand-in-hand and either one can close a trade and secure the profit for you.
