I have done in the past. It’s a bit hit and miss. If the trade is going against you and you feel you don’t want to lose anymore you could just close it manually - but you would have put your stop loss well away from the noise in the first place.
As others have already said here, when they widened their stops they noticed price would go to an area where they used to put their stop previously and then go back in their favour.
You would have to assess this for each trade individually.
Not really no. Based on the position size and the time it usually takes to get moving in your favour, never really had any issues.
Some pairs like cable don’t really respect any technical analysis, especially in the current climate - and I’m not really into watching news and fundamentals either.
I have no real preference, I go thru all the charts at the weekend.
I might have 7-8 trades max open at any given time, not necessarily per day or per week.
Much love - when dogs bark, its hard not to have a little look. It’s more a case of, its the same old dogs barking now.
