After the various discussions regarding using a stop loss in this review, I found the following on the website after Friday’s results had been updated.

Results:
Verdasco v Dolgopolov: Successful (I can make this successful as this was a 5 set match)

Member:
Not sure if I’m doing something here but I hit the 40% stop loss on Verdasco (opened at 1.51).

Patrick:
You should generally leave the trade open till the middle of the second set. Other factors also need to be considered – a 5 set match on clay in front of his home crowd are all important factors when making decisions.

I’ll not say too much here, but in my opinion, a stop loss, is exactly that.
