I don't think trading without a stop loss has got anything to do with skill. It's kamikaze risk management and wouldn't fly on any trading floor or in any fund so why is it acceptable for your own personal account? As the poster above me rightly says, this is a game of capital preservation first and foremost. We all lose trades and it's about ensuring those losses don't wipe out your gains. Yes you can hedge but how often does that go well?
If you can't spot the liquidity then you are the liquidity.

Forex trading is not about capital gains but rather about capital preservation and that's why stop loss is of huge importance while trading.

Well said buddy! Trader can never think of trading without SL.

Without a stop-loss, there is no way to protect your trading account. You will lose your money sooner or later if you don't use stop loss while trading. It is a necessary tool for a successful forex trading career.

My anxiety would never allow me to trade with no SL, not that I would want to. I'd much rather be safe than to take big risks and lose it all.

I can't believe anyone would do this !! Even use a wude SL but none unless your hedging is trading insanity

Guess that stop loss is the main thing in trading activity. Lots of traders neglect trading with stop loss because they think that they know when to stop, nevertheless, according to the statistics, the vast majority of traders doesn't know when to stop. They just blow their accounts, especially when they trad with leverages.
In my opinion, it's strictly prohibited to trade without stop loss and I don't talk only about novices, it concerns professionals as well.
