Hi all, I'm still a novice trader. The market has been very good to me for the most part, but I keep getting shaken out of highly profitable trades prematurely (2nd straight time this month). I use discretionary stops based on daily profit loss percentages to around 2.5% (?which is substantial?) Here's my most recent trade: SZYM BOT on 3/7 @ 11.88 (knife-catching? crap, I know. sorry guys! Thought I saw good support from previous periods) 3/12: Gap up @14.18, breaks 14, breaks 13.90, breaks 13.80, I type in my order, breaks 13.75, I brace myself, breaks 13.70, I vomit. and hit the sell. SOLD @ 13.65 4:00 pm closes over 13.90. I curse the world. Today. Closes over 14.43. I am too chickenshit to get back in saddle. (trading on cash acct w/3-day settling) and I curse the world some more. Now part of me pats myself on the back for making a profitable (albeit riskily initiated) trade. The other part kicks me for being a slight wuss in a bull market and not using wider stops. And of course, I always kick myself for trying to catch the falling knife so often. Can I please get some feedback on this trade? Any & all constructive criticism appreciated. Thanks so much!
