I am currently trading on TradeStation and using a position sizing code (%f) added to my strategy.
Since the formula used for %f uses the fixed $ stop loss of the strategy, as soon as I am allowed to trade one more contract, the size of the stop loss is reduced as a consequence. Results are still positive over time but of course, the win % decreases as well. How do you deal with it? What is your experience?
Let me know, thank you.
