Stop losses cannot be considered as a problem, but they have certain disadvantages. The major con is the fact that SLs are too accurate. I mean that even if you use the levels in order to determine the right place for the stop loss, the price is able to move slightly beyond this threshold and then go back to the area that you've expected.

Exactly, risk management is very important. And for this, I need to use Stop Loss.
Volatility and levels that formed, as well as the specifics of the trend, that data can affect my stop loss. I do not set the level for a predetermined number of pips, but I am based on the market. I think this is correct.

Of course, some traders might claim that it's very inconvenient and it brings potential profits from you, however I bet the biggest amount of traders would lose everything in a couple of trading days if there was no stop loss actually. If you're skilled and experienced enough, so you can try to trade without stop loss, but you have to monitor your deals all the time, which isn't recommended for traders mostly because there is a big chance to overtrade. So, I believe that stop loss is a problem only for those traders who can't understand its necessity.
Yes, stop loss is not a problem. Those who are experienced traders give a lot of importance to stop loss. The percentage of profit from their loss is much higher.
