I would like to add a 10% stop loss into one of the predefined counter trend strategies. How would this be done?

Thanks

You have to surgically insert code that does what you want. Installed strategies aren't rules-based, so edits are manual programming.

How do do it? It depends 1) on the strategy, and 2) if you want "touch stops" (AtStop order) or a stop based on the closing price (AtMarket). Specify a specific script and the detailed requirements, and we can help with one.

Note: Including stops will almost always create a less profitable Strategy.
