5 crossovers and playing LET IT RIDE, is causing me to drink Laphroaig heavily. Today would have been a good scalping day. but scalping brings smaller profits and you still are a slave to the monitor all day waiting for a crossover. What, i should scalp 200 bucks? Sorry. i don't have that much discipline when i look back and see a $5g run... Either way you will kick yourself.

Perhaps you need the drawing board. I don't.

Has anyone attempted to use Trade Station. Why do you fear automated trading.

So i had my doubts with this method because my first day trading was a $700 loss then i traded it again with a modified buy zone and made 850 so my question to you or anyone is about the stop loss. And since you don't like modification questions, has anyone done a comparison as to the more advantages place to put the stop loss? For instance, would it be suicide to place it ..01 or .03 or .06 below your buy price, Has anyone estimated how many dips price makes below the .10-.20 level. Or is it better to take 1 bigger lose lets say at .20. I wonder which would be cheaper considering commissions and number of dips.

For instance

It would be cheaper to place sell price .02 below buy if on average it dipped back down 3 times than if you set it at .20-.40 and dipped to that level 1-2 times.

Also is the sell place .20 or .40 below the buy zone. Because if it's from 1 zone to the other, i think it's too extreme after back testing 50 days.

My stop is placed .20 away from the entry, so enter open +.10 stop placed open -.10 and the reverse for shorts. After my scalp portion is hit, i take my stop up to break even. It's been working out good for me. Trial and error approach.
