They say, you can slightly improve the performance of a system with no stops by eliminating the worst 20% of trades. How do I know what the worst 20% of my trades would look like since I always stop them out? Well, for us low techies, just take a painful walk down the right hand column of your brokers statement where everything is marked to the settelment price. I use to ignore this, now it is the most interesting thing I read everyday, and the monthly contains a wealth of useful information. It's just I haven't quite figured out how to make this useful information produce wealth yet, but maybe you have some ideas.
