So many BS Bla Bla responses. Yes we've all read the books. For me, I am a very profitable (trader of more than 40 years experience in stocks, commodities and forex) and I only became profitable when I stopped using a stop loss. Now I NEVER use a stop loss. NEVER, ever, ever. My account is my stop loss. I only fund the amount with the TOTAL amount that I am prepared to loose and don't make stupid trades. In other words if I fund an account I am prepared to loose 100% of that account without loosing sleep. Then I go all in on every trade I do make. Because I am all in on every trade I have to refund the account when I loose. I can't and wont add funds to move a Margin call at the last minute. This slows down the decision making process for me and ensures that I have conviction on every trade. You are less likely to make stupid decisions when everything is at stake. So when I'm wrong I'm just simply wrong and I have to accept that. When I'm right I'm leveraged up to the eye balls with all in and ...... KACHING!!$$$$$$$$$
Not the trading style for everyone and a long way from main stream BS that floats around but I'm working about three hours a day for an income that would make your eyes water.
You can't spend open trades.
