June 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Across the globe, savvy Forex traders have been taking advantage of larger than normal volatility with some Forex pairs, like the AUD/USD, dropping nearly 800 pips or 8 full cents. As investors around the world take a flight to safety and back the US dollar, those trading long the AUD/USD need to be smart about their stop loss strategies in order to protect the downside and limit their losses.

Ashley Jessen from http://www.capitalcfds.com.au  says "Professional Forex traders understand how critical it is to cut their loss on any one trade as a loss in capital of 25% takes 33% to get back to break even and a loss of 50% takes 100% to get back to break even. The emotional freedom you receive when you cut a larger than normal loss can be quite overwhelming as it truly frees your mind and your ability to think clearly."

Capital CFDs offers an automated stop loss policy on every Forex trade so should a trader forget to place a stop, you are covered with their automated stop loss facility. This is calculated automatically and ensures that if your position were to run against you significantly, then your trading account would have a degree of protection.

"Stop losses allow smart traders to predetermine their risk and put the odds in their favour by only selecting Forex trades where the potential reward is 2-3 times the size of that risk. If the trade doesn't work out, you have a relatively small loss and you can move confidently to your next trade." says Ashley Jessen.

"Traders need to be proactive and use sensible trading strategies that put the odds in their favour by cutting losses off short and ensuring they have the opportunity for good upside. Capital CFDs automates that one critical component of all successful traders by having a stop loss mandatory on every single trade. It's important to understand as well that every trader has complete control over where they place their stop loss and amending the automated stop loss takes seconds." Jessen says.
