I have an automated system but am afraid of using an algo to scale my position. I can see the benefits of using an algo but I don't want something to go wrong I end up with 50 contracts. Of course a good programmer could put in safe guards. I may do this at some point if I can come with something that above all is safe from an execution standpoint.
I do have a system for scaling but I increase or decrease contracts manually when adding strategy to chart. About the only thing I do manually.
"The day I became a winning trader was the day it became boring. Daily losses no longer bother me and daily wins no longer excited me. Took years of pain and busting a few accounts before finally got my mind right. I survived the darkness within and now just chillax and let my black box do the work."
