I day trade eminis and hold my trades anywhere from a few seconds to an hour or two. Typically, when I open a position I have a 5 to 8 tick stop, with usually a 5 to 8 tick target 1, and a longer target around 15 ticks. When I open a trade and it is hovering around breakeven or +/- 2 ticks, and then it fails to follow through as I anticipated, I often ask myself: would I still take my position now, even if I could get in at the same point, knowing what the market has just generated? In other words, do I feel strongly enough about my original decision to make the trade again, or better yet, do I feel strongly enough about it to add to my position right now? I feel like even if the trade goes my way, it was dumb luck because I expected the market to go about it in a different way, and that even if it was a winner, I just happened to be on the right side of the crowd. Does anyone have any thoughts on staying in a trade or exiting a trade when this kind of thing happens?
