Re: DEMO Semi-automated S&P daily trading system

ordinaryguy76 started this thread now +100, SL moved to 1233.4 (50 pips profit). I know I said I wouldn't do it, but:
-it's just under 2 hours to market close
-it was a really big move down already. I want to catch at least part of it.
-I will be busy now until 9 pm, so won't monitor this trade. Fingers crossed it won't catch my SL.

Re: DEMO Semi-automated S&P daily trading system

ordinaryguy76 started this thread I can see how beneficial it would be if I were able to split my trade in two parts - take half profits at, say, +50 and move SL to b/e.
On the other hand, risk would be twice as big and it would make the system even less automatic.
I need to do more research and figure out a way to backtest such strategy.

ordinaryguy76 started this thread Right, it's flying now to +90 and I'm tempted to move SL to +50 again...
