Forex Trading Money Management and Lot Size Positioning
Money Management (MM) in forex trading is the same as any financial investment philosophy. Don’t risk what you can’t afford and only risk what you can live without. That’s the real number one rule but we have strategies and rules that we put in place to not only protect us but also to enhance our returns so that they are more than what we risk and put on the line.
The method I learned of MM was to use a percentage of your account balance you are prepared to risk or lose when deciding on placing a trade. All of the courses that I attended taught the same and it is up to the individual on how much of a percent per trade that they wish to risk. I personally risk 0.25% and 0.5% of my Account Balance on any one trade depending on the quality and probability of the trade setup. Money management ties in with the Psychology of trading as well and getting the right money management to suit your style will help your Psychology and Emotions while trading. I can go on more but below are some videos explaining what should be done to keep in line with money management to turn you into a successful profitable trader.
If you’d like to discuss more then feel free to reach out by email but I am pretty sure you will get the understanding after watching the videos.
A younger Andrew Mitchem in the first video explains what he teaches his students from around the world about MM, and he mentions 48 countries which you’ll find it’s about 88 countries to date in 2021 and going strong, a true testament to how evergreen the strategy is.
