trade date: 5/8/11 vehicle: common stock direction: long A) entry price @ â¬88.5 B) stop price @ 61 c) risk on trade: â¬5000 D) position: C / (A-B): 180 shares E) committed: (A*D) = â¬15.930 F) first exit 120 shares @ â¬107 G) second exit 60 shares @ â¬116 My questions are: what would you recommend to improve the expectancy of this trade? Is scaling out worth the lesser potential profits? If stock hits first exit price (â¬107), would you bring up the stop level and risk being stopped out before the stock continues in your direction? How would you improve the risk / reward ratio of this trade? Thanks for your input.
