Hi Folks, some thoughts tying together several trading methods: Trading a moving average, breakouts, or S/R have this in common: a "line in the sand" where you go long when price closes above and short when price crosses below. It costs money to cross the line; long periods of whipsawing lead to decent drawdowns; a decent move after crossing the line brings profits. Exit via trailing stop or when the profit can pay for three or more line crossings, for instance. So, now i'm toying with other "line in the sand" methods. The opening trade of the day, for example. Or yesterday's close. I don't think it matters if there is any significance to where you draw the line. If the market trends, you're in.
