question on BP effects and roll overs

Hi Again,

I have another question for the board members. I continue to paper trade via TOS (because the software works on my iMac and I have yet to purchase a pc laptop). Last night, I shorted the eur/usd for 50K at 1.4414, with a trailing stop of +75 pips. The eur/usd dropped 150+ pips to 1.4255 by 6pm this afternoon and the "BP effect" went from ($700-something) to $500-something. Then around 6pm (CST), I noticed that my "average price" (entry price) had changed from last night's 1.4414 to 1.4255, and the BP effect went from the previous $500-something back down to ($800-something).

My plan was to let the short position ride until my trailing stop got triggered. Is the 6pm roll over at the "then current price" a standard practice, and if so, doesn't that defeat the purpose of letting a position ride until the stop is triggered?

thanks in advance for your thoughts.

Most traders close their positions at the end of the day.

If you do not, you get the adjusted price when euro fx futures reopens

2) Start a journal and post to it daily with the trades you made to show your strengths and weaknesses.
3) Set goals for yourself to reach daily. Make them about how you trade, not how much money you make.

Sorry, I just realized you were trading Forex.

My answer applies to the currency Futures market.

I'm not sure what happened with your trade.

Hope someone can help.

I've never used TOS myself but from my experience with forex brokers none of what your saying is going on makes sense to me. Did you open another posistion on something else while you still had your open posistion on the E/U. You should call them.
