When trading markets, there is always the potential to lose money.
That’s why when trading trends, it is important to know that they will eventually come to an end.
In an uptrend, traders may place stops under the previously identified swing low (higher low).
In the event that price breaks under this value, it may symbolize that at least temporarily the trend may be ending. Traders can exit any positions at this point through the use of a Stop Order.
Knowing where to take profit is also an important part of any trend trading plan.
How to know when to take a 1:2 or 1:3 risk reward vs. when to trail your stop?…
The simple answer is that there is no way to ‘know for sure’, because we can’t ever know anything ‘for sure’ in the markets.
But, generally speaking, in strong trending markets we obviously have a better chance of getting a big winner through letting our trade run by trailing our stop.
