Re: Trading in Small Vs Large

Now, I have always considered myself who trades "in the large". When I try to eek out that 1 extra point I've found it often cost me a lot more. But on the other hand, there are times I go to market and could have "easily" got a better entry. If you look at a method that only makes on average 3 points then 1 extra point is 33% gain.

How do you manage to get best fill while not missing the trade? One idea of mine would be to use an algorithm for this, I just tell it I want to go long/short and it uses a programmed logic to get me the best fill.

Note I'm not talking about "filling a big order" but getting me the best pricing while not missing the move.
