If you stick to your plan and exit a position when it reaches your stop loss price, you will be able to protect your capital, which in turn enable you to still invest/trade to other promising stocks. For example, if you have 100,000 and you are willing to let go just 2% (2,000) of the capital, then you have 50 chances to profit in the market.
