About the Presentation
Everyone says “use stops” but very few people know how the stops change the trade results. This will be a quantitative look at how stops affect the results of a stock breakout strategy with a multi-month hold. We will be investigating maximum stop loss, trailing stops, profit targets, time stops and continued performance stops.
