    There are two things you need to think before using stop loss tool. I have been trading in this market for last two years and still now i have been using stop loss tool in each trade i open. It helps me in two ways as i said earlier. It helps me to analyze the market very well so that i can understand well how much i may loss. It really helps my analyzing power gives me the correct signal whether i am doing right or wrong. Another thing is that , Forex is a very risky market. You can earn huge amount of money by taking huge risk, but if you continue in this way then you would just lead yourself to disaster. Stop loss tool help would help you not to be greedy in this market

    Stop loss is a loss limit that we can endure and take profit is a profit limit that we can endure. We know that forex is a business that has a lot of risk. With that then for us to be successful in forex we need to have good risk management is to always use SL when trading
