General Discussion · Why are ETF's preferred over Securities?

Most ETF's offer greater liquidity,lower risk spread over many stocks reflecting an entire sector,smoother price movements (lower volatility),less price manipulation,than individual stocks.One single stock with bad news overnight(that's when they get you) can wipe out your account.That same stock mixed into an ETF will only put a slight dent in your account.Strictly from a risk/reward standpoint,ETF's are the way to go...

Hey,100% works for me,I also like the 1-3 day hold idea.Just have to see if you can get enough signals to make it tradable on a daily or weekly basis...

Why not drop the percentage down to 80? You'll get more hits,plus that's a very desirable number.Legendary mutual fund trader Gil Blake created a system with 70%,in which he stated,it's very hard to have a down year at that percentage ratio..

Losses,drawdowns,preservation of capitol.How to take a loss,quick & painlessly:Large losses almost always,start off as small losses.You're going to be wrong most of the time.The easiest thing to do is enter a trade.The hardest thing to do is exit it.The times you're right, you want to capitalize on to the max.Stay in it until the market indicates otherwise.Keep your losses to a bare minimum or you'll just keep bleeding money into the system.I want to be wrong,not at a certain percentage of my capitol,but at a certain trading level,where I know for a fact,the trade is going against me.For me,it's not that far below my entry point on a long side trade.Whether you're trading breakouts,moving average crossovers,if the position isn't following through in the intended direction,scratch the trade.Always use a hard stop.Most traders don't have the mental discipline to scratch a trade without one.That's where they get into trouble,time and time again.The sooner one developes the mental competency to scratch a trade quickly and painlessly,the much closer one gets to becoming a profitable trader.Best,Miketranz....

Buy the next morning,hold for 5-7 days,what percent of the time would this filter produce a positive result? Basically if I executed 10 trades,if 8 traded in positive territory,that would be 80%.I noticed this filter works best when the market in general sells off hard.Nov 15 would be a good example.Thanks,appreciate the help.Miketranz...
