Does anyone else execute this way? I now have my entries and exits fully automated (through Excel), and I've managed fairly consistent gains (up 35% this year on my account). I find that, at least psychologically and emotionally, it's alot easier for me to be relaxed about my trades, and I feel more comfortable ramping up as well. On top of that, I'm out of the market shortly after the open until it nears the close, so I can enjoy most of the day. Granted, I'm still holding overnight, and it opens me up to potential huge gap downs (I've experienced it enough times not to be delusional), but I'm reasonably diversified and I've tweaked the system enough to weed out those stocks that might experience a catastrophic event. Does anyone else enter at close and exit at open, and do you also see the same benefits as I do?
