Take profit / profit target

Profit target

A take profit is the amount of money you intend to make in a trade. In your order, you specify a price at which you will close your trade. The take profit is also often called "profit target".

Take profits are an important part of order management, as it helps you to automatically exit the market at the price you plan to — even if you are not watching your screen at the time the price is reached.
