Stop loss is a killer if you do not use it properly. You should risk reward ratio of your strategy. In ranging market it seems price comes back again. But if the market trend for long and if you against the trend you will eventually get the margin call.
In my opinion, stop loss is a great opportunity for new traders to trade without any fears that they will lose everything, because it fixes the amount of money which they lose. I see this option very profitable and effective, however lots of traders claim that it can be dangerous. It's partly so I think. As for take profit, then it also is created for accumulations safety, however it also reduces the potential amount of money which a trader might win. So, there are both sided of the coin I guess. Anyway, I would recommend all rookies and professionals to use stop loss in order to make your way much easier and profitable.
Well, I wouldn't call a stop loss a killer, but if you don't know how to use it then it is a great problem for you which you need to solve as soon as possible. Stop loss is one of the most important and useful tools in trading but it can bring more losses than profits if you cannot use it properly.
In my opinion stop loss is always a saver in various situations. It doesn't matter whether the price goes high and you were able to catch this trend and then it goes down and you will be kicked by stop loss. The mattere here is that the market let you an opportunity to try once again and everything due to stop loss. The vast majority of people don't like using stop loss just because they blelieve that it restricts potential income. In my opinion, traders should use it, because it defends you from unpleasant consequences which might happen whenever they want.
