What are the rules for 30 point and 40 point stop losses? When do you opt for 40 point stop loss? The way I understand it 40 points are used on days with higher expected volatility. How do you define such days?

It would be easier to follow if you could post the size of the stop loss adjacent to your daily trade plan post.

Thanks for keeping us updated!

Hi @rounder8

The normal SL is 30 points in most of the trades.
The 40 points is for volatile days.
I am posting this in my "risk" definition in the daily posting:
"medium" means SL 30 points
"high" means SL 40 points

Hope this helps

Thanks @loeser

This short trade is ONLY for today - expecting some bullish scene tomorrow again.
Then a retracement on friday seems high probable after the daily chart.
Good luck too!
