I have been reading different threads on this site for about 3 weeks trying to help me formulate my game plan for getting into swing trading. Twixt and Tween the BS and humor there has been some really helpful information from many who have been around the block many, many times. For all those who have posted I thank you, it has really been helpful and sometimes humorous for a newbie. My experience with on-line brokers over the last 3-4 years has been placing market buy and sell orders only. âMinimize your losesâ appears to be paramount for all traders. Now I need to understand the mechanics of the stop orders. Should I use Stop Market or Stop Limit, or ? Thank you in advance for your response.
