The chart below, from IG Index, shows approximate entry and exit levels (I took a small profit on this trade).

I wonder whether this stop was too tight. The market has held above the breakout on which I originally bought, and the uptrend could be intact. Am I taking profits too early, therefore? Perhaps I should be ruthless about moving the stop to the entry point, to ensure no loss, at the first opportunity, but slower to tighten the stop as a market moves upwards. At least I am taking some profits!
