Not placing the stop/loss point in the right position- It is not enough to have a stop/loss point in place. You have to know about where to put it so that if the market whip saws, your position isn't closed automatically. A lot of traders accuse the powers to be of messing with this and actually causing whip saws to happen to knock out these positions. The amount of leverage really comes into play here. If you can't afford to place a stop/loss in the 25+ pips range, then you should reduce your leverage to make it happen. I can't say how often I have seen my position get closed because my stop loss point was set too low only to watch it rise past the number and into the areas I thought it would rise.

Investment management firms (who typically manage large accounts on behalf of customers such as pension funds and endowments) use the foreign exchange market to facilitate transactions in foreign securities. For example, an investment manager bearing an international equity portfolio needs to purchase and sell several pairs of foreign currencies to pay for foreign securities purchases.
To position Buy 3 lots USD/GBP, the transaction volume is 300,000 USD. Considering that for a USD 100,000 transaction size commission is charged for both opening and closing the position at USD 5 each, for this transaction it will be: 2 x (5 x 300,000 / 100,000) = 30 USD. The commission fee is deducted from the account during the opening of the transaction for both the operations at once (opening and closing).
Not readjusting the stop/loss point once profit is realized- It is great when you are in profit. It is not so great to watch as your profit starts to shift back down to its original point and you wind up losing pips to the spread. Once you realize profit, readjust your stop/loss points so you can make something.
