Stop Loss Only - Page 134

1. ## Stop Loss Only

Hello all my fellow, this time I want to build a strategy, it is purely on the basis of the inspiration that I got from a content thread created by Value trader. But I forgot which thread is.

I take an example: we made ​​10 trades, if 9 trades is ending with loss, Are impossible for us to change it into profit? As far as we still have a chance, we can still change the situation into profit. It is depends on our method in managing risk. If we put a stop loss 10 pips/ each trades, and take protit 100 pips. So the end result is, total loss + Total Profit = (9 * -10) + (1 * 100) = 10 pips profit.

Compare the contrary, for example, we are a scalper, we take profit of 10 pips for each trade, and put a 100 pips stop loss. If we get 9 win trades of 10 transactions. Then the end of the results is: (1*-100) + (9*10) = -10 pips (loss).

This is evidence that a high level of accuracy in the analysis is not a guarantee for profitable if we can not manage risk properly, in other words, is not able to set the ratio of risk: reward properly. 90% accuracy in analysis isn't mean profitable, and 10% accuracy in analysis isn't mean unprofitable.

Okay, that is a simple logic of the system that I will build.

Even so, I will start from zero, I will do a backtest for a few months back, or more than a year back, and then I will do a forward test.
For a back test, I would not use the analysis at all, I just want to know the worst of this system, I just rely on the game of risk: reward ratio.
Of course I would compare of 5 methods. So I will know which one is best, and what weaknesses and strengths of this system.

It is my plan to build this system:
1. Doing backtest in EUR/USD, GBP/USD, AUD/USD, NZD/USD, USD/JPY, USD/CHF, USD/CAD, and EUR/JPY.
I would compare 5 methods of risk: reward ratio:
- Stop Loss 25 pips : Take Profit unset. or trade using stop loss only, no take profit. But close all profit positions in the last week or last month.(My system)
- Stop Loss unset : Take Profit 25 pips. or trade using take profit only, no stop loss, But close all loss positions in the last week or last month.
- Stop Loss 25 pips : Take Profit 25 pips. or trade with 1:1 Risk Reward ratio
- Stop Loss 25 pips : Take Profit 50 pips. or trade with 1:2 Risk Reward ratio
- Stop Loss 50 pips : Take profit 25 pips. or trade with 2:1 RIsk Reward ratio.
In the back test, I would just use grid trading, (using robots), so I'm not going to use market analysis.
I use buy stop and sell stop orders, the distance of each order is 25 pips. I do not use order limit, just order stop. And the distance of the nearest pending order to the current price is 25 pips. And will always add new pending order if the price move 25 pips or more.
Just see the picture...

2. Doing forward test. Here I will determine the appropriate analysis strategies, and then do some testing, maybe I can change the method of analysis if I am still getting unsatisfactory results. Then If I've got a good and profitable system, then I will make a thread for this system, this is my journey in building strategy. A system with use stop loss only.

Thank you

I like to trade forex field with the stop loss, the stop loss is not a bad tool, this is the forex trading tool who will never let is lose more than what we can bear, that makes the stop loss to be important for every trader who can trade it correctly. To trade with stop loss goes with the way the trader is making his plans too, the stop loss needs to be used correctly, else, it will not work fine.

7. Stop loss will always be the right way to further manage our capital because such will enable us to manage risk and be opportune to build up a winning trade. Stop loss is important here and every trader does everything possible to see they can limit loss and increase their chances to which they can get to earn good.

Trading without stop loss is the most poor means or methods of trading the forex market and it is one of the sure ways through which we can lose everything in our trading account without wasting much time and it is one o the sure ways of which we can earn nothing on the longer term from the field of forex trading business.

I know that the use of the stop loss is so good, the stop loss will not let us to be losing what we do not plan to lose. There are so many traders that are trading carelessly, even at that when they use the stop loss, they will give the market a strong fight. But in the moment the trader stops using the stop loss, no matter how strong his strategy can be, the trader will fail.

11. In this market a trader will get good results and always safe in this market only if we use a good risk management , good learning and good efforts will give trader good chances of wining and our trade system is also going to be successful we all have to learning about the valid way of money and risk management to make solid plan for earning money .
