Re: stop loss

hello Taikoismail,

I can explain where I put my stop loss
do keep in mind your moneymanagement is important to the growt of your portfolio
You need to think about the ratio risk to profit, think about how to risk less for the profit
you can afford to take.

Risking a 1% of your capital balance is a good rule but too simple overlooking you
shoot yourself in the foot not thinking about compounding gain so you recalculate the 1% over the NEW capital balance and do not count in lot size but in % balance.

If i buy when the trend is up in a bullish rally then i place my stoploss under the lowest low

Try to use "1:3" metodology - TakeProfit is three times bigger that your StopLoss. You can also modifying this like 1:2 or other, depends on your trading strategy. If your trades will win at least in 70% you will recive nice profit factor.

Re: stop loss

Hi, in theory the stop loss should be placed at the level where the price invalidates your reasons to enter the market. Example, if you are buying into the market based on your observation that the market is in an uptrend, your stop loss should be placed at the level where the uptrend market structure has been broken ...

Re: stop loss

honestly its hard for us traders to try and give you an exact way of placing your stop lose, there are many different approach to stops based on the strategy you are using, is it % of risk compared to capital, or simply is it an adjustable SL, what i do on my hotforex account, set the parameter of my trades before hand and placing a stop loss depending on how much im risking, lets say for a certain trade ill go up to 5% or limit it to a certain number of pips, since most my trades are actually swings and at times i do leave them over night, even if i did not hit my TP and my trade is positive i adjust my SL to certain point with a positive outcome of simply break even point but thats just how i do it.

Re: stop loss

Hi, in the EA´s I'm analyzing usually use a stop tracking at a distance that should not be less than one ATR of the value in question. Greetings.

Re: stop loss

Stop loss is a part of risk management. To shield your account from extraordinary loss, you have to utilize stop loss. In any case, to utilize stop loss viably is the key. Numerous traders don't know how to utilize it. I recommend them to examine more. I am trading with FXPM. I picked the broker as a result of their instant withdrawal facility.
