    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Using Barrier Stops In Exit Strategies by J. Katz, Ph.D., and D. McCormick A simple technical method for exiting a trade is the break of a trendline on a chart. This article measures the performance of using this strategy as an exit rule. In recent articles, we explored the topic of exits and experimented to see whether the behavior of simple exit strategies could improve the performance of a system whose trade entries were essentially random. Our first exploration was of an exit strategy that involved a profit target exit, a stop-loss exit, and a time-based exit. Then we examined the behav...

  • Barrier Stops And Trendlines by J. Katz, Ph.D., and D. McCormick

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Barrier Stops And Trendlines by Jeffrey Owen Katz, Ph.D., and Donna L. McCormick Last time, Katz and McCormick measured the performance of using this strategy as an exit rule. This time, we examine the effect of eliminating entries that would have been taken in instances where the trendline stop was farther than $1,250 away from the entry price. In recent articles, we experimented with exits to determine whether simple exit strategies can improve the performance of a system with essentially random trade entries. We have explored a strategy that involved a profit target exit, a stop-loss exit...

  • Using Trailing Stops In Exit Strategies by J. Katz, Ph.D., and D. McCormick

    ARTICLE SYNOPSIS ...Using Trailing Stops In Exit Strategies by J. Katz, Ph.D., and D. McCormick Last issue, we saw a demonstration of how an exit strategy can affect the performance of a trading system. This time, we will discover how to measure the impact of exiting the market by using trailing-stop techniques. Previously, we explored the behavior of a simple exit strategy involving a profit target exit, a stop-loss exit and a time-based exit. We used a standardized random entry system in which a random number generator provided us with entries into positions from which we could exit. Our goal was to find out ...
