Ideally, before you enter the trade you will have some idea of your profit-taking strategy. The psychology of profit taking is both fascinating and frustrating. Obviously, most of the time you want to try and take profits that are 2 times your risk or greater, but there are times when holding out for a certain profit target is not the best move.
Markets tend to behave in the same general conditions. Trending, consolidating or range-bound. Make a plan of how you will trade and take profit for each condition and your heartache moment will definitely decreased.
