Losses are part of the game, any activity that involves risk will also carry the possibility of losing money. So what can be done to deal with losses?
Above all we have to manage them; first of all you should have an idea as to how much you are willing to lose per trade, then you have to see if that fits in with the volatility of the market. You may need to trade smaller sizes, if your stop loss is too small you may get stopped out simply because of the volatility, whipsaw, to then see the price go your direction again….!!!
You also need to consider the time frame you are trading over, if you are day trading then your stop losses will be smaller than if you keep you positions open various days.
