    Exclamation What is stop loss?

    Stop-loss is an order placed with a broker to sell shares when they reached a particular price as per the investor’s risk-taking capacity. The aim of a stop-loss order is to minimize the loss, that is, after the price reaches the set value, client’s position is automatically closed with a fixed loss.

    Some traders do not set such tool while trading and cannot control their losses. In my opinion, they take great risk without such tool. I would recommend to set it to avoid losses.

    Stop loss is a risk control technique which enables a trader to limit his losses when the market moves in the adverse direction. Forex market is risky and uncertain and no matter how much we learn it we cannot make it risk free. This is the reason why Forex gurus always insist on the usage of stop loss and to control our risks.

    An order placed with a broker to sell a security when it reaches a certain price. A stop-loss order is designed to limit an investor's loss on a security position. Also known as a "stop order" or "stop-market order".
