    Simple and to the point, I like this one. Good use of pulling out old posts. I find in times like this letting go of stocks I've held for a long time can be very tough. Do you practive what you preach?

    Of course, with the model I am currently developing all positions are accompanied by a 2% stop immediately after purchase. No emotions regardless of the stock.

    I believe it is due to his outstanding risk exposure for each position is then kept to a minimum. I could be wrong though.

    Just because of how I run the current model. Out of my biggest winners recently none have fallen more then 2% from my original purchase price before running up.
