I have developed a stress free method , using a set and forget method , that eliminates psychological demons from my trading

Emotions can be mastered , can they really?If markets become extremly unpredictable , volatile , irrational chaotic and then they take your stops out , and head in the your direction without you , I can remain cal unemotional

You are correct and this post explains why it happens why .It is the stress response in action , stress because something is not right and market has proved you wrong.,

The way I see things theres nothing to get stressed about, I dont see the market as a threat.
I accept the reality of the situation as best I can and execute as best I can in that moment. Theres no right/wrong win/lose.

Ive a dax position that 200pts under water atm, should I be upset?

Well, heres the trade.

The only thing I got stuck with is the 3.25% profit from the other 60 long only tards opened and closed since opening that position.

And heres some facts:-
1) If I do a nero (sit, watch it, do nothing), Dax would have to drop 67,000 odd points to bust my acc.
2) If I do a nero (sit, watch it, do nothing), dax would have to drop 2100 pts to give back the profits from those other 60 tardes.
3) Max size at any time was less than 2x
4) Time at the screen to do all this was an hour over those 11 days (actually, thats not a fact, but its pretty damn close )

Obviously I could do better but I havent put in the time

That's because like most traders you are lazy and do not want to put in the effort.
You will never succeed unless you are ready to put everything in.
There are only a maximum of two ways to trade and this is not one of them.
When you are ready, come and talk to me, until then don't waste my time.

Hi DT, Hope you don't mind me asking: How do you deal with these small but very soggy trades? Have you a hard stop 500+ pts away? Or perhaps a time limit after which you shut them down?

Many Ta's

I dont use stops mate, ever, no time limits etc. Always open and close on a limit. If things heat up and im looking to lighten I look to limit some place better than last price. Have normally got something at better prices that help to offset the day.

For example, if im -200 and I manage to get out at -50, -100, -199, +1 . Ive done my job as a trader, imho.

OK gotya. It's is a strategy I'm interested in but the smallest stake is 50p with my broker - I'd need more like 10p!

You trade at a 1,000 p/p dt so, in your shoes, I wouldn't be 'upset'. I'd be in serious need of a shed full of these . . .
