talking stops...

  1. Are trailing stops reliable? They seem to have a number of benefits (for swing trading) in that they market makers don't "see" the stop since it is not actually entered so they may not trade down to it. Also, I would think that a good trailing stop would ensure that the majority of the movement is captured. As far as my limited use of them so far, they seem reliable as far as broker entering them when they are hit.

    Pros? Cons?
