MC6 will execute on both statements depends on profit right now.
In MC7, only last statement will activate no matter how much profit now.

Steps to reproduce this issue

     buy("LE") next bar at market;

In MC7 it works the same way as in TS. I have added some screenshots demostrating this. I'll turn this bug report into a feature request, Sir.

I didn't say it's a bug in MC7.
Actually, I think it's a bug in MC6.
The action in MC7 is more reasonalbe because I think only the last setting should be activate.
I only need you guys clarify this point of view officially.

I don't think MC7 is working correctly in this action. It doesn't make sense just accept ONE SetPercentTrailing at the one bar. MC6 accepts more than one SetPercentTrailing, but MC7.
