look at the boards all in red, except IDCC APPL and few others. I don't like this market at this point, the run has been great so far, to great!! Any suggestions? We all know a correction on the total market will be here by March.
Stop loss can work in theory if you are able to buy those shares back at a lower price. But look at your situation. Yo came within 28 cents of having those shares sold. Then it is up over 2 dollars from your stop loss. How would that have made you feel?
Then remember the still unexplained flash crash the market had. Billions were lost as stop losses triggered and the stocks started returning back up. Stop losses work against people as often as they work in your favor.
You seem to be around all day. Why have automatic stops when you are able to monitor the market all day?
