I had no doubts that a trailing stop would be better than a take profit, but I am having a very difficult time finding the right amount to allow for trailing, no matter what market. Did you have the same problem? It seems that actually a take profit gives better results. Unless we are talking about a trailing stop that allows 2 or 3 ticks ABOVE a certain profit (which is like saying a take profit plus a tight trailing stop), which is not what I had in mind speaking of trailing stops. The wide ups and downs of all markets seem to make it impossible to use a large trailing stop. What do you think?
