I trade the NQ and the ES. I have my method for picking my injuries, setting stops etc. My dilemma seems to be not knowing at what profit level to exit. Just yesterday I had a 20 point profit on two contracts NQ, didn’t hit exit and ended up with a break even trade. Today I had a monster trade, hit exit at 25 points profit on two contracts of NQ . Of course that thing cranked 15 points higher literally within minutes of my exit. I have dabbled around with different rules and variations on a moving average basis. Like if I’m long and a five minute bar close below the moving average then I exit. But this doesn’t seem to the era very reliable method. I have a fixed exit as well but that tends to be unreliable as well. Does anybody have advice on how to “know“ when the up trend or downtrend is over? And exit.
