HF Markets allows you to trade on MT4 and MT5, but most traders always set take profit and stop loss. If you do not set this, you may not be able to respond to unexpected large fluctuations in the market, and you may lose a lot.
What is Take Profit?
Take Profit is a setting that locks in profits. When the price specified by this setting is reached, the trader does not have to manually make a settlement visually, and the tool will handle it on its own. This take profit can be set when ordering on MT4 or MT5, so be sure to set it. Because you can’t be certain of your profit.
What is stop loss?
Stop Loss is the opposite of Take Profit, and is a setting that confirms the stop loss. When the specified price range is reached, the tool automatically performs loss cut settlement. This eliminates the need for traders to keep track with their eyes. Of course, this stop loss setting can also be set on MT4 and MT5, so be sure to set it. The market may move significantly while you are not looking at the chart, and you may lose a lot.
determine the ratio
Since you are going to trade, you have to decide the ratio. When you trade, you want to increase profit taking and reduce loss cut. In general, professional traders set the loss cut to 1 if the profit taking is set to 2. It is said to be a risk reward, and it is necessary to take a large amount of reward (profit). Most professional traders often set this risk reward at 1:2, 1:3. If you take too many rewards and set it to 1:10, the number of loss cuts will increase, and even if you make a profit, it will all come back. Distribute risk and reward in a balanced manner.
