I trade the ES using fixed risk stop - as in if my account is 25K and my risk is fixed at 5%, my total stop can't be more than $1250 for a single trade. I wait for a reaction on my entry chart, place stop below/above the reaction area and adjust for size based on entry/stop needed. While this works when it does, one problem is that the market fakes a lot. Also it is typically a tradable area of anywhere from 5-25 points (depending on signal chart timeframe). What do the pros who are consistently making money in the ES using for stops? Goal is to eliminate death by a thousand cuts (aka small stops) while also keep risk to pre-defined levels. These are swing trades (lasting a few days), trying to capture movement on 240 min or daily charts, not scalp/day trades.
