Those who vote yes, how do you manage the trades? ie: the method.
Does managing your trades shows more profit?
Protective counter position, for example at news time. Similar to a stop loss ;)
The EA decides ;) that the trend changes to a counter trend.
Pull back in a trend, one of linear regression protective trend lines is hit. I call this the "gear change method" ;-)
For example the EA uses linear regressions of period 50 (gear3 = the fastest), 100 (gear2) , 200 (gear1).
If in an uptrend the price hits the lr50 , a part of the position is sold and the trend follower switches one gear lower.
If lr100 is hit, we switch in this example to lr200, and again sell part of the position.
if lr200 is hit the EA closes the position.
The periods of the linear regressions might depend on the choosen currency and its volitility.
