I've finally made progress with my entries to where I can get positive in my trades the majority of the time. However, I usually end up breaking even or negative and I need to work on my exits. Yesterday I had a trade go in my way and I was up $3k. But I ended up giving it all back. That's really frustrating. So I was thinking maybe I should just take profits? It's hard for me to scale out because I build up my position by scaling in. When I determine safe add-on points I add on. Of course this raises my average cost and therefore my breakeven stop, so I've tried to cut back on adding on lately. Today I caught the run in ES from 861 down to 841 and I added on contrats to a max of 4 and I'm up $2500. If I had taken profits at say $1k I would have left a lot on the table. And I'm thinking that it'll be possible for the ES to test its low so I want to stay in. Sorry if this post isn't well thought-out but I'm kind of stuck. Before my problem was always entries so I never really had the problem of not knowing when to exit. I'd like to get some input on this. I've read that exits are at least as important as entries and now I really believe it.
