Would you explain the process of exit strategies? Thanks ó Elom

The appropriate exit strategy will depend on your outlook for whatever you are trading. In most cases, itís best to have a stop-loss that will trigger your exit from the trade if it begins to move in the wrong direction. The stop-loss might be based on a technical level, a dollar amount, or a percentage. For example, you might set a stop around an important technical support area in the market. Or, you might stop out of the trade if it moves 5% in the wrong direction. We also recommend setting an exit strategy based on a profit objective. For example, if you set up a straddle or a bullish spread using options, you might exit part or all of the trade when you have achieved a 25% or 50% profit. Most important, when you develop an exit strategy, whatever it is, stick to it. This sometimes means cutting a loss even if itís painful in the short term.
