Title: STOPS

  I would be interested - and I suspect others would be as well - in your definition of tight stops. Are they based on a % of the intraday high within a signal, or the signal buy price, Additionally are they based on the closing price for a day, or a stop within the day.

  The model uses 5 percent trailing stops based on the closing price. I sometimes will say to tighten stops. I don't have a precise definition of this but I normally will go to 4 percent. The percentage you use will depend on your risk tolerance.
