Trading Journal Day 19 - More Standing Still

More Standing Still

Remember the issues I had with my broker a couple of weeks ago? I will be closing that account. That means no new trades in that account as trades unwind, and new trades will be less frequent for a while.

Open Trades

While everything else about an open trade is established at entry, the ‘stop loss’ order will be adjusted periodically over the life of a trade. The idea is to move the stops at key price points and let the profitable trades keep running.

I'm still marking bold the stops that I adjusted.
