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.
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.
