    I was wondering if anybody can share a good idea for trailing stops. Or their opinion whether a completely mechanical exit strategy can work

    I am a relatively new trader. I do mostly ER and some YM
    I have the entry part down pretty good Yet I am hardly making any money because I just lose it when I am in the market.
    TIME AFTER TIME I get out to early or to late for trades.
    Are exits like entries and one just needs to go through the growing pains.
    Or are the standard trailing stops that come with trade station up to the task;
    So I get busy with the fun part of finding the perfect entrees and leave the exits to the computer.
    Is this realistic
    your insights will be greatly appreciated
