The key to making STE at 1:1 work for me is precise entries
I like to use STE at 1:1 (usually +10pts) as it frees up my mind to look for new trades and according to my stats, it improves my profitability.
But there is one really obvious problem: I am trading levels so my entry is usually just above or below it and if the market makes a 10pt reaction, then retests before making the move, I will get stopped out and then the trdae will take off. This often leads me into some crappy trades – it did so toady (12th Feb).
To minimise the impact and likelyhood of these kind of stop hits, I need to be very precise and antipatory with my entries – to get in before the crowd.
