The professional trader has long years of experience and also a good understanding of the market, but I think they also will keep trading based on risk management maybe they trade without stop loss but will cut loss if the trading en^danger all trades, except they already don't care about the money, big trader also get big loss but never exposed
Trader can do what seems to be right, even to trade from another room, not looking at the monitor. If it is profitable, then OK, do it. Because the problem of those who suffer losses is not that they make irreparable mistakes, but that these mistakes are caused by the absence of the correct trading plan and trading system.
Well, I notice that lots of traders rely on luck and their beliefs in trading activity, while I can't claim that it's okay for a trader. Trader in my opinion should rely only on his/her personal experience, knowledge and take into consideration previous deals or mistakes which were made by him/her. Of course, people are tend to believe in something that doesn't relate to rational side, for example, luck. Luck has no rational traits, it's all about fiction, that's why it's easier to rely o it, rather than on your personal skills. Anyway, for example, it's better to set stop loss, rather than thinking that everything will be oay and the price will go the same direction as the analysis showed you.
Well, mental stop loss can actually work if a trader has strong discipline and self-control. Technical stop loss has some drwbacks which get on my nerves and I am sure that I am not the only one here. I mean that the market can just occasionaly go beyond the borders of your stop loss and them immediately bounce back according to your expectations but it is too late because your deal was closed with a loss. That is why I met many traders who avoid using mechanical stop loss and they just follow their own plan. That is what I wanted to talk about. If you have a trading plan and you are ready to follow it without any compromises, you can do without stop loss in the traditional sense, i.e. the one which is present in trading platform. However, the vast majority of traders, especially new ones, are not disciplined enough to do so. They are full of beliefs which are affected by emotions and there is no room for common sense and logic. In this situation it is a must for a trader to use mechanical stop loss despite its main drawback which I mentioned before.
Yes, using stop losses and limits is a good way to manage risk when trading currencies. In simple terms, a stop-loss order is used as a method to cut your losses when your trade is not going according to plan.
Cordardred posted: Stop loss should be used by all traders I guess. It doesn't matter whether you're skilled enough in trading or you just joined trading community. Those ones who trade without stop loss will definitely once face unpleasant consequences of their neglection of using stop loss. As for take profit, then here every trader has to decided by himself, because take profit restricts your potential income, while stop loss is much more important. In my opinion, the very first thing in risk management is the ability to set stop loss correctly. The perfect ratio is 3:1, tp/sl respectively. Complying with this ratio might restrict potential losses.
Could not have said it better. It is very important to include stop loss in your trading
Mental stop loss doesn’t work in this highly dynamic market. You can’t monitor the market every minute of the day. You may leave your trading desk with everything in your favour but when you return there’s a possibility that a sharp market turn has happened and you have not only lost the unrealized profits but it has also wiped out your entire account. Moreover, another purpose of using a stop loss is to separate the emotions, if you are not going to automate it, you can never exit the positions at the right time.

It may not, but it will minimize the losses you could potentially face.
Taking part in Forex treading is a very easy way to earn and Forex treading can be done at home without any pains, so I think Forex treading can make a very easy and simple life. So I believe that forex can make life easier for everyone to work from home.

Frankly, I don’t have anything like mental stop loss in my trading, because stop loss is a sure thing in my trading! I never open any trade position without stop loss trading position, and the size of my stop loss mainly depending on my trading style! When I do scalping I use small stop loss like 12 pips!
