Hello everyone,

I'm interested to know your recommendation on managing loosing trades, best way to close them to prevent further loses.
Would it make sense to close a loosing trade AS WELL AS any winning trade or trades that sum the equal amount of the loosing trade...
ie. LOSSING TRADE -$10.00. (close)
WINNING TRADE +$10.00 (close)

My 2 cents would be to manage every trade independently unless the strategy uses multiple entries. Losing trades should always be closed at the predetermined stop level at worst (most good risk management systems would try to close losers quicker). Otherwise they have a tendency to snowball and eventually blow the account. Thanks.

If you have a good trading strategy then it would be easy to you! In this case, high profit ratio helps me a lot! Usually, I don’t open any trade which offers me below 1.5% profit ratio.

Decide in advance when you will close the trade and set a stop loss at that level

It depends on strategy and currency pairs. I enclose my testing on Parabolic SAR strategy, EURUSD. I get different results for different currency pairs. Values in screenshot are in USD.

Well, I use stop loss position thus I can avoid big losses in my trading! In addition, I follow tight money management as well as risk management policies in my trading.

You should never open a trade without a plan. Not only you need a target, you also need to know when your entry is wrong and you have to get out. And I am not talking about a stop loss, you can exit manually. I call it emergency target.

Always have an exit strategy.

That is something one's trading plan should take into account. Different strategies require different approaches, there's no one universal answer to that question.

There is a lot of strategies to deal with losing trades.

1) Stop Loss - soft one (based on individual trade) or hard one (based on account balance), static or dynamic...
2) Averaging and its variants (Martingale, grids...),
3) Hedging,
4) a combo of everything.

The best one??? It depends of your trading strategy.

Place a stop loss at support or resistance based on your entry and trading time frames. Always use a stop loss in leveraged trading.

I would keep away from grids and martingale. ALWAYS use a stop loss and the loss management will take care of itself

I would prefer martingale, but only in 3-4 steps on every new signal. If your signals are reliable, there is no need to close trade in loss. So lets say I would open 0.01 lots, than 0.02, 0.04 and finally 0.08
If market still goes against you, and 4 signals failed, close all, review strategy and restart

People use martingale and averaging in a wrong way. When you are trading, some support and resistances will define a change in master trend. When this change happens, Martingale, grid, aversging fails miserable. But if you sell at .382, .500, .618, .786 and .886 in a Fibo retracement, but incrising your lots... it is an Averaging or Martingale strategy, with a SL at 1.000, where trend shows signs it has ended. 0.01 + 0.02 + 0.04 + 0.08 + 0.16 = 0.33 lot. I think it is better than place the 0.33 lot at 0.618 for example.
