I wonder why the stop loss does not work this morning at 8:30 GMT. I was shorting GU and the stop loss is 10 pips. However when the UK news came out, the stop loss failed to stop at the setting price. It finally stopped but I have lost 77.3 pips. :x

I thought the puppose of the SL is to protect the money when this going on. If the stop loss does not work, how can I protect my accoount? :(
