Imagine the situation: you make money in a trend, decide you have made enough, and sell out. Then the market breaks out again. Should you go back in?

This is just the situation I faced with EUR/GBP, which I have been stopped out of today. I did go back in.

Is a successful trade such a rare and special thing that you have to guard the profits you have made, and just accept that you won’t capture the full move? Or is the right thing to do to follow a trend to the bitter end, trading every signal as it runs and runs?
