Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

I think Mack from price action trading (PAT) encourages people to aim for a 1 pt profit and put your stop at BE and try to manage a runner on the ES. I posted this question to see what other traders think of such a money management practice. I once tried it in my journey and was beeing stopped out all of the time. But it seems some have success with it.

My experience is that having breakeven stops almost always decreases system performance. That is for mechanical rule based systems. Very rarely does it make things better.

BUT, I can see the usefulness for discretionary traders from a psychological point of view. It can be deflating to watch a nice winner turn into a loser.
