Should trade with leverage 1:2 maximum . In this case , there is no way your account would be wiped out , even a big disaster strikes.

Often , the best trade is no trade at all

It doesn't work. I've been in situations where the stop was not triggered. See 15 Jan 2015 SNB decision.


That move was just devastating. And it happened in matter of minutes.

 

Could you share how did your trading change in regards to leverage after that SNB decision.

thanks

It's pretty safe leverage , but even that would have been devastating . Losing 30% in 30min, what if you sold after you lost 30% which is 60% loss in your account ,still pretty bad.


But i can imagine it must be really difficult trading currencies 1:2 leverage.

Yes exactly
15 Jan 2015 SNB decision - positions simply did not close at SL. Good brokers did refund this but even big players like Pepperstone did not.

Stop loss is very important to make money from this market.

It depends on brokers' execution speed. But traders will face slippage.

Exactly, many important things depend on the broker.

Everything is intact, of course, you don't need to rely on stop-loss, but all the same it is a kind of guarantee and safety in your trading.

Yes. You need to have proper knowledge about leverage before using it.
