LONDON, January 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Vantage FX UK (http://www.vantagefx.co.uk/) provides its clients with Forex Strategy Builder, a piece of software designed to help users create trading systems for a range of foreign exchange pairs.
Forex Strategy Builder features risk management tools to help traders minimise their losses and maximise their gains. Read on to find out more about how to get the best out of basic stop losses, trailing stop limits, day/night stop losses and reversal stops.
Basic Stop Loss
The default setting on the Forex Strategy Builder is the basic stop loss. This parameter allows the user to specify a level at which they wish to close their trade. The basic stop loss can be set at the outset of a trade and adjusted as activity progresses.
Trailing Stop Limit
The trailing stop limit allows the user to lock in gains by sliding the stop loss higher when a trade becomes more profitable. In effect, if a trade is moving in the trader's favour, the system will keep raising the stop trigger until the trade turns negative. At this point the trailing stop limit will lock in at the current level, and immediately close the trade when activated.
Day/Night Stop Loss
The day/night stop loss allows the online forex trader to set a stop out level or time on a trade. The time could be set to go off each day at a specific session time or period, or could be utilised for one-off scenarios. This stop loss can also help traders to manage overnight positions and weekend holds.
When a trader sets his or her stop loss levels, they can also choose to close a position if a reversal signal is found. This is known as a reversal stop. For example, if a position is opened because the moving average indicators meet the set conditions or trading guidelines, then the position can also be closed if the system generates an opposite position.
