Do we have to always follow our trading system even if sometime it lags in creating current trading opportunities or sometimes diverge from it and take the trading opportunities we see?
Sometimes a clear formation appears in the charts and my trading strategy is lagging in giving me an entry signal and by the time it gives me a signal the price has already made a nice move.
After entering the market at that current price I start to notice some reversal patterns few moments later my stop gets triggered.
It does not happen like that most of the time but it does cost me because a trade that could have been a profitable trade is now a loss.
So sometimes should we just forget about the system we using and take advantage on what we see?
I’d like to hear your thoughts?
