In the following video, Lyons George, research analyst for The Motley Fool's Rule Breakers service, takes a question from a Fool member, who asks:
I'm a new Rule Breakers member. I tend to be drawn to the riskier side of stocks compared to my husband. I've dabbled in stop loss orders recently, but I'm finding I either don't like them, or I don't do them well. My question is, what is your opinion on stop loss orders vs. let it ride?
