I am holding a DOW short position as well, have to admit that it was painful few weeks.

but I will stay, the key is to adjust my position to survive and also be able to reduce the cost base over time, and finally the most difficult is to hold it unit the time comes, and keep the profit running.

    • Good article (new) on strategy planning and testing from Steve Burns. https://www.newtraderu.com/2020/10/25/how-to-create-backtest-and-optimize-a-trading-strategy/ "A trading strategy is the process used to enter and exit positions in a market based on quantified signals on when to buy and sell. A trading strategy will have trading plan to express a methodology that defines a trader’s return goals, risk tolerance, and time frame. A successful strategy should have an edge expressed in how trades are entered and managed to maximize gains and minimize losses."
