Important Stop Loss Placement Article (Money Risk Management principles)

Every trader and investor needs that professional "edge" or they are destined to fail. That edge is implementing correct Money Risk Management principles in their trading decisions. The professionals use them and NOW you can too.

What I am sharing with you here today is not anything new but a strategy used by professional traders globally in all markets for decades. I am going to simplify these principles for you so that you can understand them and have the confidence to implement them in your trading and investing.

I will begin with Risk Management or Stop Placement. The professionals use various technical analysis techniques that are "invisible" to the majority of novice and seasoned traders.

How does the market always seem to "know" exactly where your stops are?

Have you been frustrated by the market triggering your stop, and then rebounding back in the preferred direction of your original trade?
Perhaps you feel that the market was intentionally gunning for your stops?

The bad news is... They are! Stop running or Stop gunning is a common technique employed by Floor Traders.


Stop-running or gunning (both terms are used) occurs when a price is pushed through a support or resistance price level in order to trigger the stops that are hiding there. After the stop supply is exhausted, the market bounces back in the other direction, usually winding up where it was before the exercise began.

Professional Traders know where your Stops are......

so where should you place your initial Stop Loss?

Your stop loss acts as a trigger and is a price level at which you will exit the trade. This price level should be determined prior to the trade being opened.

The Stop Loss is the point at which you will exit the trade "no questions asked". A stop loss will help preserve your trading capital to make sure you can trade another day.
Remember, a stop loss is simply a price level where you must take action and close that trade first opportunity and move on.

Here is a typical example of how you could calculate your stop loss....
John has decided to buy $20,000 worth of "XYZ" shares using a portion of his current $50,000 (the author would not risk more than 20% of his Trading Capital in any one trade e.g. $50,000 x 20% = $10,000) and has decided not to risk more than 1.5% of his trading capital on the trade.

The current share price of "XYZ" is $2.00, so John calculates that he is only going to risk $750 on this trade (1.5% x $50,000). He buys 10,000 shares of "XYZ" at $2.00. (The author allows for brokerage fees in this calculation)

John calculates his initial Stop Loss for this trade to be $1.925 (($20,000 - $750) / 10,000), so if hit the maximum loss will be $750 and John would immediately close this trade and sell his holding in "XYZ".

A trailing stop is a price level which moves in accordance to the share price.
If you can imagine the share price constantly rising, you would want to protect some of the unrealized profit. You can do this with the use of a trailing stop loss, the same concept of a stop loss still applies. That is, the trade is immediately exited when the current price reaches the trailing stop loss price.

The most important thing to remember about any stop loss is its importance in signaling an exit point where you must act and close that open trade. Many believe the exit is far more important than the entry.

After share trading, educating and selling various forms of Technical Analysis Stock Trading Software both to novice and seasoned traders for over 10 years I found both Technical and Percentage Stops were being placed in or around the same price level by the majority of traders and investors. These were triggered and closed usually just before the share price rebounded back in the preferred direction.
