Do you use stop loss orders?

Never. We consider this a loser’s game. We cannot count the number of times our stock selections have swooned downwards and we would have been sold out of our position. It is better to make a decision on when to sell stocks, rather than let the market dictate the transaction. Similarly, we do not use “at the market” orders, preferring to keep closer control over how much our stocks cost and what we get paid for them.
