Higher the risk higher the reward and vice versa.

It's very important to have good or acceptable risk level, not really wise to get into high risk without good experience.


Yes mate, risk reward ratio is very much important. On the other hand, I see overtrading is one of the most common problem here! By the way, in my trading I never go for more than 2% risk ratio in my per trade.


yes, it was my problem as well, you did good.

Let me interpret it for newbie in trading 'higher the risk, higher the losses'.

well said @TeraPips for newbies it is like higher the risk higher the losses, that's why it is very important to learn how to manage the risk.

I think it is more about what you do with the given leverage rather than how much you are using. Newbies are inexperienced that is why they are told to go with low leverage. Low or high leverage, you should be smart enough to manage your risk.

Mate, what did you mean by without risk? Because, I know; there is nothing like 100% in Forex, it’s all about probabilities. Thanks in advice.

That is a lot of the problem here. People assume high leverage is high risk and low leverage is lower risk but it is all about how you set up a trade and manage your account. I dumb trader can wipe out an account on low leverage just as easy as high leverage

really big - they own markets, set rules etc. Like JP Morgan & silver, Govs & housing... too big to fail etc. Everyone else: risk management, Sharpes are very important... smiley

In Fx trading , leverage is useful for trader , especially if trader start with small balance hence with leverage it will giving opportunity to making transaction on Fx market , now some broker offer high leverage until 1:1000 but so far I am only use leverage 1:400 as maximum.
