Well, that's going to be a matter of personal preference. And if others are anything like me, it probably takes trying a few different things before one really knows one's preference.Ideally, I think trade frequency should be a function of the chosen strategy, as opposed to an arbitrarily imposed limit. I mean, a limit is not so bad in itself, but I think it's going to be problematic for example if one decides to limit themselves to 2 trades a day, but employs a technique that triggers 10 potential trades a day.With the sort of thing being discussed at the other board, 1 or 2 trades a day, sometimes none, is all that can reasonably be expected, and I see evidence that that's enough. But obviously you can't be exiting with 3 pts or whatever. I mean, you can try it, but your ratio of avg win to avg loss is going to be crappy.And there'll be times when you have to watch it come back to BE from a profit 3 or 4 times the size of where T would've been long gone.Anyway, I'm still verifying these ideas for myself.
