I prefer to use stop loss to minimize and avoid lose in trading.

This is mostly important when we are unsure of how the market would turn out!

I would say stop lose and trailing stop are the major tactic to minimize risk in the forex market, you would set your stop lose about 10 points away and should be below the market price when going for long position, the same applies in short position and should above the market price.

I agree with you, in order to minimize loss, we must understand the risks of forex. So that we could risk management do well, so loss can be minimized. One way with install SL. That way, even greater loss again we can minimalized.

Risk awareness is necessary to minimize loss without it we can not manage it. When we know how much amount is being used in each trade we can analyse it is possible to have loss or profit. It is better to do trading in low margin to limit our loss in low risks. regular trading will make us good in risk minimization.

- Risk fixed percentage per trade

- Have a daily stop out limit, $ amount or account %age or number of losing trades in a row

In order to minimize loss in Forex trading there are two main factors to consider.

1/- Lot Size / Position Size

Only risk a specific number of lots per trade.

This means, every time you open a buy / sell trade with one fixed lot size.

Most fund managers only risk 1% per trade. You need to calculate 1% based on your trading account capital.

2/- Stop loss in pips.

Use a fix stop loss. This means, every time you open a buy / sell trade, you are always going to place a stop loss. You could get slippage from your broker but in order to control your risk, you should place a stop loss.
