Advanced Take Profit is an ideal tool that allows you to successfully exit your trades in a more sophisticated way than a simple take profit. For example if you are trading Fibonacci retracements, you can use partial take profits to secure some of your profit on each Fibonacci level, while staying in the trade and speculating on further development of the trend. Also Advanced Take Profit is one of these features that makes Fondex cTrader unique when compared to other widely used trading platforms.
