I'm still new to e-minis and am trying to figure out a simple yet effective way to take profit. I dont expect to get the best exit every time since that's impossible but am looking for a way to get the bulk of a trend on the average. basically, I've been using trendlines and bars to see if the trend is continuing although I've been having difficulty figuring out if the slope of the trend is just decreasing but continuing the trend as opposed to a stop in the trend. Also, I've been making use of the average trading range to get a gauge of how far more or less the mkt may go and tighten up when it gets there. Thanks.
