hi everybody Alex  from expert 4x in today’s video I’m going to be showing
0:16
you the different types of stops and Stoploss techniques that we use in manual trading
0:23
but to do that I’m going to have a look at our most recent da the money make
0:27
money PA and if you look on your screen you can see that there are four options
0:34
for stops there’s the initial stop-loss the move your stop loss to break-even
0:41
option the trailing stop loss and then the dynamic trailing stop loss and i’m
0:48
going to go through each one and show you how they work the easy one is the
0:51
initial stop-loss essentially we can use an example we there’s a target of a
0:57
hundred and a stop loss of 50 now if you use only the initial stop-loss what
1:03
happens is the the the prices go up to one or two perps of your target and then
1:08
come all the way back and stop you out in a transaction example like this where
1:14
you’ve got a hundred per target and a 50-foot stop you can effectively lose a
1:19
hundred and 50 pips the press can move it to your disadvantage 850 eps so it’s
1:26
not essentially the based way stop to use your initial stop only then the
1:32
second one of the Stoploss techniques is the break-even stop so
1:37
move your stop to break even at a certain point so let’s have a look at
1:42
how that one works ok so with the break-even stop with a hundred-foot
1:48
target but venture 50 pips stop what you would tell the the stock to do is move
1:53
the stock to break even when a certain profitability has been reached in this
1:58
case we’re going to use 50 50 / safe when it’s move 50 pips towards its
2:04
target move the stop to break even and that will make sure that the the
2:09
transaction is risk-free great
2:12
and it will also give you the protection so if the price reverses that you can
2:17
the worst you can come out is break even
2:20
it also has the disadvantage that the processing go all the way up to within
2:24
one or two parts of the target come all the way back and effectively your street
2:29
stop has allowed you to lose a hundred pips that’s the disadvantage of the
2:35
break-even stock so let’s have a look at the trailing stop now i use the word
2:41
followingstop and trailing stop interchangeably they mean the same thing
2:47
so if we look at this followingstop example let’s say you’ve got a hundred
2:53
people target a 50 / stop you then searches to the falling snow stopped of
2:58
the trailing stop when I am 50 pips positive creative following stop that is
3:04
50 pips big in this example and then trail it by every movement of ten pups
3:13
that the price max so in other words when the price moves + 2 + 60 the
3:19
trailing stop will follow by 50 pips Augustus 70 it will follow by 50 pips
3:27
and then eventually the process of other hit the target or to stop great also a
3:33
great tool to use advantage of this is that you become positive more quickly
3:38
your results can be a positive but because you’re using a fixed amount all
3:43
the time you can still end up giving back quite a lot in the end the price
3:49
and come within 1 pick up your target and you could be giving back 60 pips to
3:55
the market because you’re your process into the target but come and hit your
4:00
followingstop very effective tool a big improvement on the initial stop and the
4:07
break-even stop
4:08
so let’s have a look at the dynamic stop now what the dynamic stop does then it’s
4:13
a bit like a followingstop but it keeps the race show of your risk return ratio
4:20
the same throughout the transection so for instance if you have a hundred
4:25
people
4:25
darker than a 50-foot stop that means your risk to reward ratio is one to two
4:33
and therefore it will keep that ratio throughout the transactions that as the
4:39
price is going up it will move the stop app to make sure that if the price comes
4:45
down you are still losing in the risk-return ratio in this example for
4:52
every 20 perps that the price moves closer to the target the stop will
4:58
actually move 30 pips so it what happens is that it ends app squashing the price
5:05
into the target and if there is a retracement George the mountains you’re
5:12
giving back to the market is become smaller and smaller as the transaction
5:17
happens in this petite in these particular settings you can decide how
5:21
often you want your risk return ratio corrected you can do it 10 times in
5:27
doing a transaction or you can do it five times two other in this particular
5:30
example i’m showing you a five times correction so as you can see the stop
5:35
becomes smaller guns from 52-42 3220 and 210 perhaps as you get closer and closer
5:42
to that squashing the the price into the top also extremely effective and that
5:48
has the advantage of not giving back to the market a lot of perps in in your mt4
5:56
platform the only stop there is a vital automated stop is the trailing stop you
6:03
will when you open a transaction and it’s active what you do is you
6:07
right-click on the transection as you can see i’m doing right there and you
6:14
then have a trailing stop facility so you can actually tell it by how many
6:22
points you want your trailing stop to follow so there is the only automation
6:28
in the mt4 platform in our pas as you can see we have those settings that
6:37
now you to adjust all those stops that i have shown you so i hope you found this
6:46
helpful question is which Stoploss techniques should i be using there is no definitive answer
6:51
to that
6:51
it depends on the currency the type of training technique use and a whole lot
6:57
of other factors so the best is if you’re using an EA back trade that EA
7:02
using it are using all four that stopped at $TIME meters and see which one is the
7:07
base and if you’re using manual systems you’ll have to evaluate which stop you
7:14
would like to use for again for me thank you for watching this
