Here's a simple system that has been working well for me, particularly today. 1. Enter mkt* with fixed stop of n 2. When profit hits n convert fixed stop to trailing stop with a value of n *It doesn't matter what you use to enter mkt, just always be consistent and use the same thing. Not sure if it makes a difference, but I only trade one side until I get burned, then I only take signals from the other side until I get burned there and switch back.
