    But if you only invest one percent, price action could go to zero percent and you would only technically loose one percent of your capital

    Cutting losses is indeed important. Although I tend to set cut losses based on the market trend and indicators rather than percentages. I just feel like cutting losses by percentage is like trading blindly and may hurt you in the long-run.

    Looking back to the GFC in 2008, I learnt the hard way of the folly of holding onto stocks that fall.

    Nice video. If a 7% stop loss from the purchase price is IBD's version of "Cut Your Losses Short," then what is IBD's version of "Letting Your Winners Run?" By the way, why a 7% stop loss as opposed to a 3% or 10%?
