We have received a lot of questions in recent weeks regarding the use of stop-loss orders for selling shares. Here are just a few:

  • What do you think about the use of stop-loss orders? — Thomas H.
  • Hey Jim, Love the work you do. My question is why do you simply sell shares to trim a winning position?  Why not set a stop or trailing stop in case the position has more room to run? Thanks and regards. — Bruce M.
  • I am curious why don’t you use “stops” and let the winners run? — Tony
  • Jim, Do you recommend setting stop limits on stocks? — Ron I.
