>>>>>>>>>>Different strokes for different folks. In my case, I have no doubt that if I placed a stop-loss in a market like this, the stock would take a one day price dip which triggered the stop-loss. And then it would immediately jump back up. So I'd be sold out at a loss, but the stock would not have crashed. Yuck!

Then I would think the stop was at the wrong place. If you're long a stock in "a market like this" I would think the stops are especially important. I would sure be interested in hearing what stocks you think are so great you know they will go back up?
