old issue of mine... and I realize it is as much a mental thing as any. I have been TRYING to let me trades work and run. It just hurts to see trades go positive and then when done my trailing stop (I use PSAR) either gets me to break even or a small loss. I think for now I need to go back to bracket orders that put in both a stop loss order and a preset target limit exit. It just FEELS so good to take profits. Yes, I have to get over the idea that a runner may go and I was not there for the whole ride. anyone else want to comment on the mental / emotional side of this issue. It would seem like a technical thing , but it is not.
