Hello Kelvin,
Just like any other financial trading, while dealing with CFD, you have the risk of making losses. A trader can use a stop-loss order to limit the losses they may make while trading.
When you decide to go long or short in CFD trading, there is a possibility that the market may move against you. You can, therefore, place a stop loss that will determine the degree in which you are ready to let the loss either increase or decrease.
Placing a stop loss in CFD trading is untroublesome. What mostly matters here is the place where you set it up. Before you place it, however, you need to know how to calculate it.
Depending on how you have well, you have studied the market, always place a stop loss at an insightful level.
You may decide to close a trade when you speculate that you are going to make a loss. You may do this without taking into consideration the plan you had set up for your trade, mostly due to fear of making a loss. It is, therefore, essential that you place an involuntary stop loss for your trade.
A stop-loss will ensure that we follow our trading plan. To know a stop loss while trading, you may look for things to assist you. This is an indication that our trading scheme is not going as per our plan; therefore, it is invalid.
You should, therefore, spot the close price levels when the market moves against you so that you can establish your stop loss.
Typically when determining a stop loss, you will be looking for the extent in which you want the market to come back to normal and the maximum loss you are willing to make.
