That's the reason Bushman suggests not using sell stops. Try and trust your instincts and sell on the way up. I know it's easier than it sounds but watch the trading patterns and you will see there are many opps to sell on the upside. Bushman is not a player when it comes to day-trading but at least he learned this important aspect of trading several years ago and you will learn it too if you plan on making a future in day-trading. Good luck!
