Stop Loss can be moved manually, Trailing Stop is used to automate this process. Trailing Stop allows the Stop Loss level to move relative to the price fluctuation. That is, it is the floating Stop Loss which follows the price when it moves in your direction. Trailing Stop is useful at a strong unidirectional market movement.
Take Profit is opposite to the Stop Loss order, it is used to fix profit. If the price reaches the Take Profit level, an order closes automatically and fixes the profit even when the trading terminal is offline.
The standard loss/profit ratio is considered to be 1:3. So, if Stop Loss is 20 points, Take Profit should be 60. The potential profit should exceed the risk by several times.

The method of calculating profit on Forex depends on the currency pair quote. If the base currency of the pair is USD, it is called the direct quote (e.g.USD/JPY, USD/CAD, USD/CHF). If USD is the counter currency, this is a currency pair with the indirect quote (e.g. EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD).
If the currency pair does not include USD, you deal with the cross-rate (e.g. GBP/AUD, GPB/JPY).
(closing price – open price) / closing price × contract volume × lot size
(open price – closing price) × contract volume × lot size
(open price – closing price) × base currency rate × closing price × contract volume × lot size
