  1. Your new stop is higher than Friday's close fyi

  2. You're right, my stop for next week is higher than Friday's close. That happens once in a while. My trailing stops are volatility based, so they're always moving (sometimes I wish they'd move just a little faster). But as you pointed out, if the stock doesn't move any higher next week I'll be stopped out.
