Trailing Stop Loss - Pips in trail

It's counter intuitive to use pips FROM the buy/sell price when setting a TSL (or even a normal SL)

A TSL is TRAILING and, as such, you should be able to set it to TRAIL by a number of pips.

If I'm 353.2 pips into profit, and want a TSL to trail by 50 pips, I shouldn't need to set it to PLUS 303.2 pips for that to happen.

It's even worse when you're setting one before you're fully into the amount of profit you want. I'm 75.6 into profit and want 100 pip TSL, I need to set the pip value to MINUS 24.4

All other platforms I've used, use the trailing pip value to invoke a TSL.
