Trend Following- How Should You Feel
I want to share story. I was short Soybeans and my protective stop was filled yesterday. As Murphy law always works…I went short as this was the lowest low…had a trailing stop based on ATR multiples. Took my small loss (part of the game) and moved on both from a trading and emotion level. Not emotionally easy to have a trade hit a stop and then reverse. Welcome to trend following. This is reality. Trend following is not easy!
