    I believe, it is dependent upon the approach. . .if you have a low win% in combination with a high risk reward ratio, stops are essential to keep an avg RR ratio that is high up. . .if you have a high win% combined with a risk reward of 2:1 or even 3:1, stops are not so vital

    I don't use a stop based on risk reward, but I do have what I would think about a ostrophic stop in case something happens, but it has rarely been struck.

    I guess it really depends on why your accepting the trades that you are. If your shooting them as of a chart formation or an indior by all means you should use a stop incase the formation will not pay off. My reasons for accepting trades have to do with all the chart so a stoploss is a arbitrary guess as to how things will play out.

    A fantastic portion of why this works is since I don't take any arbitrary transaction. Until I do, if I really don't know what's going on I hold off. Risking 50% of my account keeps me from gaming on winners.

    The point I was trying to make was that in case your not confident in the transaction, you probably shouldn't be carrying it. Trading without a stoploss is a testament to how much you really think in your analysis. If you don't believe in it enough or can't accurately determine what your risking, then perhaps you should think about your analysis has to be improved. A stoploss in the manner it is deployed by many is only a crutch for analysis.

    PS- I say , however I don't really me you, just anyone in particular that happens to read this...
    Darkstar has made an exellent post. Informed traders tend to be more than they are mistaken. And stop loss triggered means the analysis is flawed, it doesn't neccesarily needs improvement if viewed as a installment another trade.
