would something like this work? enter a position near the close of the day. enter a stop loss order to max your loss at 2%. exit on close the next day if not stopped out. this may be a foolish strategy, but here is why i mention it. i just tried entering a position and immediately entering an order to exit at 2% profit. i would exit on close the next day if my order wasn't hit. the problem was, i would get some winners, but when i got losses, they were sometimes bigger than the 2% gain. with my idea, all your loses would be limited to 2%, but your gains could be anything.
