Totally agree. In a perfect account, trades would be:
IN >> MAKE A PROFIT >> OUT
...just like that! No open trades waiting for the market to move in the right direction, or reverse, or whatever.
Just jump in, enjoy the ride, and get out with a "straight" trade (no reversals, backtracking, etc.)
No margin carried on losing "bets".
