Here's what I've been doing for the last several days. Not sure what affect it will have over time, probably not good. When I'm up 3 ticks I give the market one and only chance. It's either my way or the highway. For example: long at even, market goes to .75. There it must go up to even to remain a trade. If it ticks back down to .50, I exit at the mkt. Sometimes I get 2 ticks, but usually I provide the trading capital and "expertise" and IB provides the software and "service" and we split the profits.
