It is very important, but I recommend setting above 25 pips, because the price has a range of 30-35 pips, which can be easily seen on the chart.

Why is this still a question that people ask!!! Stop loss is essential. No pro trader in their right mind would trade without a stop loss.

trading without stoploss is like crossing road in a headphones and with closed eyes.
You can get luck and not get hit.
But you also can get really UNLUCKY. that way you will lose everything.
trade safe!

This needs to be clear. When you don't set your SL, you still have one. The 50% margin level. So we all have one, whether consciously or not. The problem traders face is due to the leverage they use. Stop gambling and open an account with no more than 50:1 and even that is very high. The less leverage you use, the more pips the market gives you. Obviously you have to have a good system. But leverage is the only reason why traders blow up. Stop being like most traders.

I think that's a good way to curtail losses. I try using SL the maximum times possible while trading.

I do not understand. Surely if you use a 50 pips stop loss on 1:500 leverage account or a 1:10 leverage, your losses will still be the same for the same Lot size

A very good point. If traders understand this, they will not even ask about 'stop loss'.

In short, stop loss is a good opportunity to get away from big losses.
