    Wow! My stop loss came within 30 cents of triggering at 49.75

    Stop losses can be a very dangerous thing. Yet it will remain in place. Rules are rules. And one must have rules in place.

      Stop loss is a thing that investment banks etc have implemented you shoul have. The are two reasons for that.
      1. So that they can use their algorithme computers to press you out.
      2. So you must sell and buy more often and pay more fees.
      Do you think warren buffet have stop losses.

      • I am not sure how Buffet trades, but I do know if he had a stop loss, it would be a target of your "hypothetical algorythm" My position would not be.

        In addition, do you believe all the brokerages allow all their trading positions including where stop losses are set to be compiled? Because it would take a concerted effort to cooperate for this to work.
