Hi Pascal I am so pleased that you have brought up this topic. I have attended a couple of the SBK seminars and Simon, for one, has been so emphatic re necessity of stop loss. From my own modest trading experience I do not to be convinced about the wisdom of it all. But, hey guys, what a mission. Surely, like you say, there must be some means to simplify. I would rate this as an absolute priority. Thxks Jangat
Yes, especially when all the little brakkies, that does not have anything constructive to do, want to give a jap, to let the world know that they also exist. This was a sincere and constructive question to start with that was not answered originally.
Firstly IGindex is a spread betting not share trading, big difference. Secondly, to Pascal, to put a stop loss on a purchase is quite difficult, I would imagine, because you can't always purchase at the price you request sometimes trades go through other times they don't sometimes at different prices. So stick to the basics of trading and you will be fine without the stop-loss upon purchasing. I believe that simon did answer you're question.
