4 Types Of Stop Losses

Forex Stop Loss

Let’s face it. The market will always do what it wants to do, and move the way it wants to move. Every day is a new challenge, and almost anything from global politics, major economic events, to central bank rumors can turn currency prices one way or another faster than you can snap your fingers.

This means that each and every one of us will eventually take a position on the wrong side of a market move.

Being in a losing position is inevitable, but we can control what we do when we’re caught in that situation. You can either cut your loss quickly or you can ride it in hopes of the market moving back in your favor.

Of course, that one time it doesn’t turn your way could blow out your account and end your budding trading career in a flash.

The saying, “Live to trade another day!” should be the motto of every trader on Newbie Island because the longer you can survive, the more you can learn, gain experience, and increase your chances of success.

This makes the trade management technique of “stop losses” a crucial skill and tool in a trader’s toolbox.

Having a predetermined point of exiting a losing trade not only provides the benefit of cutting losses so that you may move on to new opportunities, but it also eliminates the anxiety caused by being in a losing trade without a plan.

Less stress is good, right? Of course it is, so let’s move on to different ways to cut ‘em losses quick!

Now before we get into stop loss techniques, we have to go through the first rule of setting stops.

Your stop loss point should be the “invalidation point” of your trading idea.

When price hits this point, it should signal to you “It’s time to get out buddy!”

In the next section, we’ll discuss the many different ways of setting stops.

There are four methods you can choose from:

  1. Percentage stop
  2. Volatility stop
  3. Chart stop
  4. Time stop

Ready? Let’s get started!

止损?那是什么?

面对现实吧。市场总是做它想做的,按它自己的方式变动。每天都是一个新挑战。几乎所有事, 从世界政治,重大经济事件到央行传言都会在弹指间让货币价格发生这样或那样的变化。

这意味着,我们中的每一个人都有可能在市场变动的另一边轧上头寸。

处于受损状态是不可避免的,但是我们可以控制在那种情况下我们的行为。你可以快速斩仓止损或你继续持仓,希望市场能够朝对你有利的方向变动。

当然,如果它未按你的希望变动,就可能会毁了你的账户,即刻结束你的交易生涯。

“留得青山在,不怕没柴烧”这句话应该成为每位交易者的座右铭,因为你存活的时间越长,你能学习到的就越多,积累的经验也就越多,成功的几率也会随之增加。

这使得“止损”这一交易管理技术成为一个十分重要的技能及交易者工具箱中必备工具。

预先设定好受损交易中的离场点位不仅能够减少损失,以便你能转向下一个机遇,还能消除由于没有计划致使受损交易带来的担忧。

压力小很好,不是吗?当然是,所以让我们赶快去了解一下减少损失的方法吧!

在我们进入到止损技能的学习之前,我们要过一遍设定止损的首要规则。

你的止损点对你的交易设想来说必须是“无效的点位”。

当价格达到该点时,它向你发出了“兄弟,是时候离场了”的信号。

下一节,我们将讨论不同的设定止损的方法。

有四种方法可供你选择:

l 资金止损

l 波动止损

l 图表止损

l 时间止损

准备好了吗?那我们开始了!
