I am curious about how people here view risk and return. Kindly consider the two methods described below and vote for the one that you prefer and that best describes the risk profile of the approach you presently use. Method A This method's primary objective is catching important intraday moves. The downside, all else being equal, is that it catches a proportionately larger amount of whipsaw action due to its primary objective of not being left out of sizeable moves. Further, the initial protective stops need to be somewhat looser than those for Method B. Method B This method's primary objective is risk control. As a consequence, meaningful moves may be missed with some regularity. However, this method generates more reliable signals and requires relatively smaller stops. Therefore, although this method may not participate in a fair amount of decent moves, it potentially enables the trader to better capitalize on those fewer signals that are generated with greater reliability. To be fair, let us assume that neither method is better than the other on a risk adjusted basis. Rather, let us say that they reflect different points along the same risk/reward continuum. Therefore, it largely comes down to a matter of subjective preference. Which method would you prefer to use? Any comments you may have would also be appreciated.
