|Trailing orders automatically track the market best bid or offer price. As the market moves away from the order it will be revised to keep it the same distance from the best bid or offer, if the market moves back towards the order then the order will not be revised.|
Note that revisions will only occur every 10 seconds, but it will revise the order to track the biggest movement in the market during that 10 second period.
Trailing stops are useful for when you are not watching a market as they provide a loss limit if the market goes against you, but will track a market that goes with you then taking a profit (or reduced loss) if the market later turn against you once more.
