I am a fairly new futures daytrader. I am almost out of capital. The problem is probably not new, but, I am hoping that at least one reply to this may click in my neurons: I take profits quickly and therefore my losers are bigger than the winners. I play reversal patterns and flags intraday on 5m charts. In review, the patterns/entries that I have picked went in my favor for several points. I JUST CAN'T LET THEM RUN. It's tough because I am playing one lot. It's hard to let 1 lot run. Ya don't want a profit to turn into a loser. I suppose if I had 2 lots I could take that initial thrust and then feel secure to let the other lot run. Anyone been here, done that, and gotten over it ?
