Time-stops mean if the stock doesn't move up upon purchase after some time, you exit. Very few people practise it. The stock is exited even if it is profitable. The trader doesn't let the stock run because it is not running up and standing still. In fact, almost all books that I read don't talk about time-stops. Stops are about prices, not time. Do the elitetraders use time-stops when trading stocks? If yes, what are some things to note when you use time-stops?
