Rams i think you have misunderstood..there is no simultanous short. some days a new setup develops in the opposite direction while the inital trade has not yet been stopped out. does not happen often. so yesterday was a -100pts. 1 trade
stores, good question..i was impateint to wait for my entry at 27900 as i had to go out in the morning, so instead went in 50pts early, in this case when that happens i trade a few contracts less to keep the money management intact without jepordising the trades risk reward. BUT the important thing is to stick to your stops, in todays case its at 27800.
