offset on a losing trading day - like hedging

I like to know if you offset on a losing trade on a given day? sound like hedging though not exactly

meaning, if I have
CL, profit 3 days and lose 2 days on 20 Ticks chart in a method
Trade 20 Ticks chart in a method
Trade 40 Ticks chart in same method - diff settings/diff entry/exits
only after testing 40ticks chart profit when 20 lose and vice versa?

I have a blunt idea, but does this makes sense
anyone doing this type of offset?
is it to risky with 2 charts

Re: offset on a losing trading day - like hedginG


Please don't take my reply as snarky or condescending.

My experience is that every trading system will have losing periods.

The problem is that we don't know which trades will be big winners; all we can do is control the risk and let the positive expectancy of the system play out.

Staring at the screen after 6 losses in a row and getting over the fear of placing the next trade has made all the difference for me.

Look at your results over 100 or 200 trades. If you have ended up with a positive equity and controlled the risk on each and every trade, just place trades as your system defines the setups and you'll be much better off.

Looking on the left side of the screen is a sucker's play.
