Let’s see how markets have been moving before we head off for the long weekend.
The Daily Direction
Note: Most indexes – except the Nasdaq – closed slightly lower yesterday. While the recovery helped trim losses, it was still a losing month for stocks.
The Daily Nugget
Stop losses are what allow you to protect your risk/reward ratios.
In trading, you always want your potential upside to be much greater than the possible downside.
That’s called having a favorable risk/reward ratio.
But without the disciplined use of stop losses, you won’t be able to manage your downside and your risk/reward ratio.
That’s why Ross Givens doesn’t make – or recommend – a single trade without a corresponding stop loss.
Do the same, and your overall trading performance will only go up.
