Tips On Setting Forex Stop Losses

Well there you have it… BabyPips.com’s awesome primer to setting stop losses. Now let’s review the things you need to remember about stop losses.

  1. Find a broker that allows you to trade position sizes that suits the size of your capital and risk management rules.
  2. We use the word “predetermined” a lot in this lesson because you should ALWAYS know when to get out before you open a position. Once you are already in a trade and it’s turned into a loser, you lose the ability to make a decision to exit the trade with a clear head. That could be very bad for your account balance!
  3. Set stops to the current market environment, framework, or trading method. Do not set your exit levels to how much you are willing to lose. The market does not know how much you have or how much you’re willing to lose. Quite frankly, it doesn’t care. Find the stop levels that prove your trade wrong first and then manage your position size according to it.
  4. Use limit orders to close out your trade. Mental stops should only be used by those with a bazillion trades recorded in their journal. Even then, limit orders are still the way to go: emotionally unbiased and can be automatically executed while you are taking in some sun on the beach and sipping on virgin margaritas, Pip Surfer’s favorite!
  5. Only move your stop in the direction of your profit target. Trailing stops are good, widening stops are very, very bad!

Like anything else in trading, setting stop losses is a science and an art.

Markets are dynamic, volatility is well… volatile, and a rule or condition that works today may not work tomorrow.

If you continually practice the correct way to set stops, record and review your thought processes and trade outcomes in your journal, then you’ll be one step closer to becoming a professional risk manager!

总结:设定止损

好了,你现在知道了……这里有教授设定止损的初级读本。让我们来回顾一下,关于设定止损,你应记住哪些内容。

找到允许你按照与你的资产大小和风险管理规则相符的交易规模交易的经纪商。在这一章节中,我们多次使用了“预定”这个词,因为你要在开立头寸前知道何时应该离场。一旦你进入到交易之中,而该交易为受损交易,你就失去了以清醒的头脑决定何时离场的能力。这对你的账户余额来说非常糟糕。

根据当前的市场情形、框架或交易方法设定止损。不要按照你能接受的损失大小设定止损。市场不知道你交易了多少或你能接受的损失。事实上,它并不关心这点。先找到能证明你的交易设定有误的止损水平,然后根据它管理你的头寸规模。

使用限价委托结束交易。只有那些交易的许许多多次的人才能使用心理止损。即便到了那时,限价委托仍是选择之一:情感上没有偏颇,能在你享受休闲生活时自动执行。

沿着获利目标的方向移动止损。追踪止损是个不错的做法,扩大止损则十分糟糕!与交易中的其他事物一样,设定止损也是一种科学和艺术。

市场是动态的,波动性很强……今天适用的规则和条件明天或许就不适用了。

如果你一直按照正确的设定止损的方法练习,在日志中记录并回顾你的交易思路和交易结果,你就能离成为专业的风险管理者更近一步!
