When I was a new trader, then I didn’t use SL; as a result I faced huge losses in my early stage of trading! But now, I am not facing this kind of problem because of using SL’s in my trading! That’s the real difference.

That was the memorable crash! Many traders even brokers crash their balance during that news session!
Such movements of 1000 and + pips may occurs when a Central Bank is intervening on the market - not just regular or usual news. In this case the stop loss does not help, because the trade will be filled on the first possible price :) I am strictly for the stop loss using and to avoid such movements and bad fills stay away when banks intervene :)

Same experience! I was also tried to avoid SL and trail stop in my beginning trading sessions! But right now I am not! Because, now I am very much sure about the importance of SL position.
Hey. Be honest with yourself and stick to the strategy. If you know how to control yourself and stop trading on time, then you do not need a stop-loss. I'll tell you more, your stop-orders are your psychological levels, which usually come true. Just follow your strategy.
