Greatballs... Dont take the saying 100% literally. Some profits will, and should turn into losses. If you make a penny on a trade you dont lock it in right a way. You have to give it some room. What I personally do is raise stops in accordance with the risk I initially took. For example, if I risk a point, I put in a break even stop when the trade goes a point in my favor... If it moves 2 points I lock in a point. As I get more profit I trail back a little and give the stock more room, for example if I have 5 points in my favore I may lock in a 3 point profit. There are other methods of profit taking as well. But locking in tiny profits may result in a bunch of small gains, weighed down by larger losses. Not a good thing.
