Im at the point in my trading where i consistantly make money, but im no where near maximizing my positions because of my short term mentality. I started trading trying to capture the spread over and over again at a prop firm, and i did ok with it. But now, im at the point where i need to get more out of positions to make more money. For instance, today i punched 13k of SCH at 15.00 when it was breaking this barrier, but managed to take it out for around a $150 profit because the stock movement stalled for a while, and did not actually break out to 15.04+ untill at least an hour later. Also, i punched GLW at 20.00 and made an average of about 4 pennies on 6k shares, to see the stock run up 20.19 within the hour. So what im wondering is, do any of you have any advice about how i can maximize my positions more by not selling out too soon? I just cant seem to break this penny mentality. Because im only making a few pennies a trade, i also am not willing to lose more than a penny or 2 a trade and its cramping the cash i could be making. I feel like im entering good positions, im just pussying out too soon and not making the real money. Any help would be appreciated.
