The fact that few people would expect is that many professional traders have not high win rates. Like Julian Komar, a stock trader with decades of experience, his win rate falls to only about 40%. That means, the total number of trades he makes in a given period of time will be about 60% of the orders being at a loss.

However, this is not what professional traders worry about because, in return, their rate of profit and loss is very high. What they focus on is the opportunities for large but low-risk returns.

That said, in the other 60% of losses, traders need to have a stable mentality, trust in their own methods and decisions to maintain a consistent trade. can get the results they want.


Most amateurs suffer from this stage. When we experience losses, psychology is prone to fluctuations, it is easy to break the rules that make trading difficult, and worst of all, when we turn on gossip mode. While professional traders will still have losses, the way they handle them is completely different from amateur traders. They always have their own principles and techniques for dealing with such losses.

And here are 5 ways to handle loss orders of professional traders, for your reference:

1. Use stop loss at 7%: It means that when their total loss is 7% they will exit to keep a loss of 7% of total trading capital only.

2. Accept 80% exit when the loss reaches 3% to 5% of the total trading capital: Perhaps few traders have such a principle. Many professional traders cut 80% of their volume when their total loss hits 3% to 5%. This is also a great way to reduce risk.


3. Rarely keep losing orders overnight: Most amateurs keep positions overnight because of the expectation of being able to save them. While keeping a losing position overnight is riskier than we think.

4. When the order is close to reaching the target profit, cut the order after a week: Many traders sometimes persevere at the wrong time, just have to reach the profit target, but in many cases, the price comes back. and cause a trade to stop loss. So, when 1 week has passed, is also about to achieve the target profit and you find that the price dynamics do not reach the target we set, you should exit early.


5. Batch exit: This is one of the ways that professional traders often use. They rarely escaped the full mass at once. They will mostly exist in batches, the purpose is to both protect profits and maximize profits. Of course, this technique also takes practice and experience to acquire.

Above are 5 ways that professional traders use to exit orders. There may be many other ways, but each trader uses a different method, it is important that you use that method effectively and profitable for you.
