Been on the prowl for an M series Benz or Toyota Highlander.
X5i could be in the cards too though I prefer the M.
Wife wants the toyo.
Funny how the DODGE durango is the SAME price as the upper class cars when used.
Also that the BUICK enclave is the highest priced of them all.

Buick?

Uugh.

What about a brand spanking new CX-9?


That is an option though I prefer a toyota.

The Santa Fe is my 3rd choice on the list
Mazda being the 4th.

Sonething about the Hundai name and historical beginnings though....
Same with Kia, they have a nice SUV and even a new turbo sport sedan. But KIA?
REALLY?

Wife will not allow it to be in the driveway.
Hahahaha

You should never "add" to a losing trade.

You can scale into a trade amidst the protection of a stop, but you should never just let a trade wander aimlessly past a pivot while you hope for the best (you don't have to move your stop when you scale into a trade).

Because your stop must move in closer, after adding size to a full position, the decision to add size is the same as the decision to trail a stop loss.

Maybe price stalls and you think that you should move your stop up close below a recent low pivot.
Knowing that a decision to move your stop is a decision to add size, and vise versa, you should ask "can I bring myself to add size here" and if the answer is "no" then you should just get out as your unwillingness to push that little button has shown you what you really believe.

I never knew a Hyundai could cost 45 grand.
Insane for a cracker box.

Merry Xmas to everybody!

Stocks earnings can gap price very far but the risk is to "lose 20 pips every 5".. do you ever thought about it?

I do not trade stocks, but Alias might comment on that.

So the question is whether or not I worry about price gapping past my stop loss?

I think that a previous post has confused you...

...your risk, "your money", is going to be around -1% if/when price reaches your stop loss.
the total amount that you are going to lose per line as price crosses your stop is based on
your position size:

01: .1%/line
02: .2%
03: .3%
04: .4%
05: .5%
06: .6%
08: .8%
10: 1.0%
13: 1.3%
17: 1.7%
22: 2.2%/line

How scary this is depends on how fast you are adding size and what that total size is...:
3/9: -2/3 space, stop moves up to the 33% ret, .9% per line.
3/6: -1/2 space, stop moves up to the 50% ret, .6% per line.
3/4: -1/4 space, stop moves up to the 75% ret, .4% per line.
3/3: same space, stop stays at the 100% ret, .3% per line.
...It also depends on whether you sold a pattern or a breakout & whether or not you are
trading a large period or a small one:

if we are talking M5-H1 lines then each line is about 4 pips & price gapping 60 pips past your stop will result in
a loss of 15 lines.
H4: -7.5 lines
D1: -3.75
W1: -1.875
MN: 0.937

If you are really worried then you should either withdraw profits or trade based on a fixed amount.

I'm a little slow but it's getting clear. :D
When you say "stop moves up".. are you saying i have to cut lines of x% ret?
10 lines = 3 lines at risk (normalized) when 3/10?
