I don't mind losing out on full reversion to mean trades...especially counter trend trades (price below 200  and 50 day MA). I've actually taken off 2/3 of the initial trade now, so I have locked in a gain no matter what happens between now and when the system trade actually closes.  Taking 2/3's off at 1st target is kind of the magic number, in my experience. The initial move is by far the highest probability part of the trade so I start large knowing that I'm going to scale out of most in the higher probability area of the trade. Of course, this is not an option if you don't develop targets to start with.
