Anyone leave SB trades over night


Recommended Posts

Biggest mistake I made was forgetting to close out a trade and waking up to a massive loss  (30xRisk!) due to over night news.  (Wirecard)

However more often that not I have seen trades that I closed out just before market close that if had I left until the next day would have been real winners (10R)  It seems like if I used a Guaranteed stop to prevent the above happening it would have paid off in the long run. I am not sure though. 

Any thoughts 

(PS: I assume a guaranteed stop would prevent this over night risk, right? I never used one )

I've not used them either but yes they are guaranteed but there are a couple of snags, they need to be placed with the trade entry and they can be very wide esp if market is very volatile and you can't put a normal stop in closer to the price as well.

Not sure if you can cancel them at any stage and then put a normal one in.

thanks, I was concerned about if I use them will they take precedent over a normal stop and just charge me the premium every time,  when a bit of slippage would be acceptable.

Yep I have positions open overnight - I trade from daily charts though so just use the futures contracts not the DFB - worst i've been caught by is about 2R

I see, smart move. Hertz cost me big time. 

trading from daily is a lot safer as one is not so leveraged. My mistake was working from 15 min charts, stock proceed to do nothing all day but the next day it moved a 1 - 3 standard deviations  of the daily. Naturally that equated to a magnified loss on a smaller time frame

Yeah - That's one of the reasons I prefer to trade daily charts and the fact that I'm exceptionally lazy and can't stand being tied to a screen all day

Slippage and gaps are a cost that need to be factored in

    • Sounds like you are looking at the ask price, or the mid price. I don't have access to the 10sec data at that time, but the 1 minute candle had a low at 7947.7. Ask low was 7954.7. So I guess you had a long position; in this case look at the bid price to see what is going on.
    • What really caught my eye about ChatAI is the way it aims to go beyond the limitations of traditional social media platforms. Instead of relying on text-based or voice-based interactions alone, this project is designed to support multimodal communication, allowing users to engage through a variety of formats like text, voice, and images. ChatAI is positioning itself as a revolutionary social application that combines advanced AI capabilities with the power of decentralized technology. The core idea is to open up a new era of social interaction by leveraging cutting-edge natural language processing (NLP) to enable smooth and efficient communication. But it's not just about the technical capabilities - ChatAI also seems to have a strong focus on personalization and continuous learning. The platform is built to continuously optimize its performance based on user data, adapting to individual preferences and enhancing the overall user experience over time. I was really excited to hear the news that the ChatAI (CHATAI) token is now listed on the Bitget cryptocurrency exchange. As someone who is deeply interested in the intersection of artificial intelligence, web3 technology, and social media, this listing feels like a significant milestone for the project.
