  1. I have adopted an exit strategy based on the mid-point between SmartStop’s short and long stops. Has anyone else done this? It seems to take the edge off the decision quandry – that is, which stop to formally use in your orders.

    • Interesting approach. Another approach a friend of mine is following is to use the long term SmartStops when the market is generally positive and use the short term smartstops to provide quicker exits and more downside protection when the market is weak. Needless to say, he has been using short term stops for quite some time.
