Sep Meetup Social din din
If you are in the Toronto area tomorrow, let me know by the end of today to be part of our monthly social din din. I do to these to get together with locals who are interested in algo trading, forex, and automation. It happens on Monday Sept at 7PM at Jack Astors in North York. Details are listed here by joining either Meetup.com group:
I need to know by the end of end of day for Sunday to make a reservation for final numbers.
Here was the latest chit chat on my Telegram group. You should consider joining it by going here.
I wondered what exit strategies people use in their trading. I posted this on various Facebook entities I administer. I posted this:
Who uses either stop loss and/or take profit only on their exits only? What other techniques have you used in an automated trading setting?
I got these comments:
I use trailing stops on nearly all trades… I break up my sells and trail stops a little different for each block… I don’t automate trading – I wish I could learn it, but its too much for me to learn by myself…
always have a limit order for exit, it’s the only way you can predict your losses therefore have a strategy, if you don’t cap your losses how can you have a profitable strategy?
I am interested to know what you use. I had many dialogues over this but things may have changed since then.
I also posted this video lately regarding the API. If you missed the memo, I have found Visual JForex can generate really ugly Java code as part of your strategy. In fact, I would consider it even useless or beginners if they want to advance their own programming skills.
Right now, I am focused on the stop losses right now for exit strategies. As a result, I made a video on this as usual. Also, note that I do plan to use regression for entry as hinted in another previously sent video as well. In short, just take a look at my most recent videos found in my Dukascopy playlist on my Youtube.com/quantlabs channel.
