Yes, which is the bad thing about using stops other than those in your mind.
I have a long project that I am now starting about technical analysis. Ask me in a couple of months about "entry points"


Actually, the internet portals are up fairly strongly today last I saw. Of course in an hour that usually changes. But, then again, your getting stopped out of both caused them to rocket upward, so you now can chase them upwards and buy them higher than when you sold them. Its a basic law of life.

Ass-u-ming that the market is going to continue to go up for a while, which is a mighty big assumption!, your entry prices may need to trend upward as time goes on. That is one of the first things I am seeing about technical analysis -- not enough importance given to the fact that the entry points need to follow the market up and down.

More MUCH LATER about that.
