vontogr@.... as far as I can see I was quoting and responding to the post made by clessm....
I am sorry I did not read his post.
So can we agree on statement that SL is indeed necessary?
I absolutely agree. I hope I did not come across as doubting your considerable trading experience. I have a number of students on Myfxbook, and I teach them that a Stop-Loss, Take-Profit, Risk & Money Management as an absolute must for new traders. So most of my posts are aimed to explain to my students the importance of protecting their equity and managing risk while trading.
I will admit, experienced traders develop the ability to manage a trade without stop-losses to a certain extend, but that does not mean it is the correct thing to do as a trader, from the perspective of risk management. Maybe I'm just old fashioned, but I still follow my 7 year-old trading plan as best I could, and risk management forms a large part of it.
Anyway, I have seen your portfolio on MyFXBook, and I respect your views on trading. Wish you the best for the future.
Keep it simple, be disciplined, get rich slowly and above all protect your equity!
