Topic: Average Loss

These videos are awesome! I'm following these videos to create my robots team. I have a doubt: My stop loss is 1559, what means you never lose more than 15.59 with a lot of 1000 right? Why in "account statistics" statistics show an average loss of 19.50?

I imagine that my average loss can never be greater than 15.59

Re: Average Loss

Stop Loss is activated when the market moves with that number of points against your position. That means at SL activation you loose also the spread.

You profit can be additionally reduced with swaps and commissions. Also depending on the symbol, the profit is converted to your account currency with an exchange rate.

For more details trace some positions at the Journal. It shows all details.
