Position trades typicially consume between 40 to 60% off my account size. I use the remaining 140 – 160% for swing trading in more explosive names. I rarely go over 200% on an intraday basis and when I do it it is mostly on the short side. I scale out of my swing trades aggressively and find myself mostly in position trades after a while. Rinse and repeat.
