I think for an account with a smaller balance you are doing just fine Jboyd. HOWEVER you are letting some trades get away from you. Your account would now be arount 4400.00 if you didn't allow these loose stops or whatever. I trade the es with a stop of seven ticks (87.50) special situations eleven tiks (137.50) and the nq's seven ticks (70.00) special situations eleven ticks (110.00). You will soon be Crippled if you allow these trades to get away from you, play them tighter. You can always reenter and on a lot of occasions notice the relief you feel when you are out and it cascades another Five Handles away from your stop. Staying at the Table, is the name of the game, not ending up on the rail.
