Hello everyone. I'm a long time reader here at ET, but this is my first actual post. I've recently switched from trading options to futures, and have been practicing daytrading the ES 1 contract at a time. So far I've done fairly well. I was wondering if many of you who trade the ES(or NQ, YM, etc) use trailing stops at all? I thought trailing stops might help protect my downside risk when I enter trades and take profits after a good run. I wasn't sure what to set the trailing stop at either. Just from trading during the day lately I thought 2.5 points might be good. What's everyones opinions and experiences?
