I use this ATR Trailing stop
https://www.earnforex.com/metatrader-expert-advisors/atr-trailing-stop/

it says that it can cover all trades if i set comment to true
so i did do that
but it seems like it will only update the stop losses when it is opened on a chart
i thought this would work even if the pairs werent opened on a chart

i have to open the charts so that stop losses would update
i hope there is fix to this. i really love the EA but im hoping i would have to open the chart as i work with a semi automated system

Sorry, but what does it mean?

If you want the EA to trail stops on all positions in your account irrespective of the current chart's symbol, you just need to set the "Apply To Current Symbol Only" input parameter to false. It has nothing to do with comments.
Also, even if that for some reason doesn't work, you can simply load the EA on the chart of every pair you have a position for and they will get their stops trailed.

Please describe your problem more clearly.

Thank you for creating this trailing stop robot! I really like this one just want to find a tradingview.com equivalent indicator to properly back test it with. It seems this indicator updates more frequently then any other indicators on tradingview.com. After the order gets placed and I go back to check it I get different results. While those indicators remain on the same level this trails more closely. What indicator can I use on tradingview.com that will give me similar results or how to adjust the settings because setting the same multiplier would give me different readings. Thanks for any advice.

That's just the standard ATR (average true range) indicator. The only significant difference can be because the trailing stop EA uses ATR[1] (last closed candle) by default, while you might be looking at ATR[0] (the current candle) on TradingView. Other than that, it can only the difference in price feeds between the two, but it shouldn't be too different (unless you are using H4 and there a time zone difference involved).
