It’s support 3 take profit cases, and there are two input values in each case:
Take Profit x (1-3): How many profit should be take in this case. If you set the value with percentage (end with ‘%’) then will be base on percentage to calculate the take profit value, otherwise (no ‘%’ in the end) will take profit with this value directly (this is the volumes value)
when: The condition’s value for taking profit, if hit this condition’s value then will be process take profit

2.3.1. Take Profit Conditions

There are 3 conditions for set the auto take profit:
Percent of Total TP: It will take profit base on totale profit’s percentage. For example:
Take Profit 1 case:
1). Set the Take Profit 1 to 50%
2). Set the when value to 60
Result: When the profit increases to 60% of the target profit, it will auto take 50% profit

Price: It will take profit base on the price. For example:
Take Profit 2 case:
1. Set the Take Profit 2 to 2000 (no percentage so that’s the volumes value)
2. Set the when value to 1.12288
Result: When the price hit to 1.12288 then will auto take 2000 volumes profit

Pips: It will take profit base on the Pips value. For example:
Take Profit 3 case:
1. Set the Take Profit 3 to 100%
2. Set the when value to 100
Result: This is the 3 times to take profit, so we want to take all of the remain profit, so set the take profit value to 100%, if the profit pips hit 100, then will take all of the profit and close the order.

2.3.2. Break Even

You also can set the break even in this case. For example:
