Man I hate getting stopped out. It's like the market knows exactly how to screw you over and then dips or runs JUST enough to trigger your stop!!Damn stops got me today, I dabbled in a short position today with ROKU, stop was set at $122.98 and it f'ing triggered and never smelled it again all day. It was my first shot at shorting so I was experimenting to get confidence in the trading methods. Should have been a nice gainer but I only dabbled in 100 shares and only lost $92. Win some you lose some, trying to play both sides now on stocks I follow heavily to make some cash here and there. Don't have Tri money though lol.
I've largely quit using stops simply because I could never master it...I just have to sit and watch like a hawk any trade I need that level of protection on....
