Placing stop loss is one of the difficult tasks in trading. So many things to consider. Your trading style, risk tolerance capability and good knowledge about support and resistance levels are important to place a stop loss.

its not even that difficult, yes it does involve a couple of factors to consider like, the extent of loss you are willing to bear, what are the ongoing spreads, a stop loss should never be so tight that it gets no space to breath and even a slight movement in the price triggers the stop loss level.
The more your practice, the more you learn.

A demo account helps a lot to learn how to set a stop loss, because your profit will depend on it.

Discipline cannot be maintained without stop loss. Therefore, every trader should use risk rewards to maintain risk.

I guess SL can save us against those unbearable losses in trading, but I really get irritated when my stop loss gets hit and the very next second the price moves in my favour, just hate that feeling.

You should not risk trying trading without stop losses, this will definitely lead you to losses, especially if you have no experience and practice.

Setting a stop loss is an integral part of successful trading. However I think it is ridiculous to set a stop loss of 10 pips because minor fluctuations can close our order. if we place a stop loss very near like 10 pips or 15 then a good order can be closed with a loss. I prefer to place a stop loss at least 30 pips away and usually place it from 30 to 80 pips depending upon the trading strategy.

Setting stop loss might seem difficult in the beginning. But when you start using it in all of your trades, it won’t feel so.
I think placing stop loss at right is hard especially for new traders. Support and resistance level play important factor regrading this matter.

The stop loss location is also critical to risk management. if you set a very wide stop loss then you will give your trade more time to 'breath' but your potential losses could be huge

Setting up an stop loss is an art. You need to have a good idea of support and resistance. And how price work in support and resistance area. Focus on increase your knowledge and skills. Slowly you won't keep checking the chart.

This is my first post on this forum. I have been trading for a long time so I can express my opinion on this topic based on some experience. I usually try to place stop loss above or below the swing. In this trading style my losing ratio is low.

Some pairs are more stable than others ,thats why its wise to trade 1 pair to begin with ,usually what we do is wait for large spikes placing stop loss instantly as spike happens,must be a larger spike than rest of the trend.Next 3 candles present themselves of possible direction,takes practice of reading the trend to place correct stops.
Strength and honor.

I will never understand traders who do not understand the importance of placing stop loss for their order. I can see why experienced traders sometimes do not do that, but beginner should seriously input their trading style and learn why stop loss is very important.

Stop loss is important for short term traders. But the real problem is where to place the stop loss. Many people place stop loss by counting pips. But to place stop loss, knowledge of support and resistance is very important.
