Just curious as to what you guys think. I trade the ES. Lately, I've been enforcing a rule for myself where when I'm up 1.75 points or more, I stop trading for the day, and just watch the market..... trying to get better at reading it while keeping my profits. This works out fairly well except for the occasional blow-up.....I'll start trading off the 1 min charts instead of higher time frame charts and get chopped up real bad. My +$100 days on 1 contract turn into -$450.....I mean hardcore tilt. Lately, these blowups happen less and less. And many times they stem from the fact that I don't take my good setups....I leave them be....then see them profit, and get pissed and get into trades that I shouldn't. So now, when I'm up 1.75 points +, I quit. I know I'm limiting myself when I only take 2 points per day. I see other opportunities that I could be trading, but I leave them alone. *Oh and FYI, if I'm long, and have a target that will net me 3 points, i will not exit early for 2 points * Is this a stupid idea ? Or how many days in a row do u think it should take for me to graduate to taking every setup ? Or should I be taking every setup ?
