For Placing Trail Order we need to use this . is there any way we give ticks to trail so it decide automatically trail Price like we used to in old api . Since if we give price trail is getting made invalid due to the market moving faster than the order can execute (We want to trail with one tick only )

new OrderDraftBuilder()
.WithTrailingStop(new TrailingStopData(contract.CurrentPrice.LastPrice, (10 - 1) * contract.TickSize))

This feature is not currently supported in GFAPI. I have submitted this to the business as a feature request.

I'm starting to implement this feature, and I have a few questions..
1) how did you achieve this in the old API?
2) Do you want the reference price or delta in ticks?
