I'm attempting to use a logical approach in the case that the market changes, obviously in order to protect myself from losing even more than I already have (~$50k loser right now). I have a trading strategy around 70% with 2 pnt target, 2 pnt stop. I am trying to figure out how to "adapt" should the market "change." So there are several bases to consider: 1. Ticks: Well I use a tick chart. Therefore, it seems logical to take the current average daily 'tick' value, divide by an arbitrary number to come up with my intraday timeframe: ex. There are 10,000 ticks per day in market X, so if I divide by 100, my intraday timeframe is 100. Therefore, if the # of ticks per day changes by a certain degree, I have a new intraday timeframe, and I can 'adapt.' Of course there is also: 2. Average daily point range or average true range. (I am thinking of using changes in range or volatility in order to 'adapt' my strategy inputs). 3. Average daily volume. I have a feeling I can still get whacked. Any insight???
