Trading does include maths but in this maths a person does not need to be the top of class in the subject. You just need to have enough knowledge to use a calculator. Some trading platforms do most of the calculations for you but still sometimes you need to calculate how much you would like to invest or what risk you can bear.

Mathematical knowledge will help you better understand the principle of the indicators. Basic calculations of the trading plan will be made easier and faster. So this knowledge will only benefit your trading.

I do think that math will be useful in trading. Especially, I am talking about the theory of probabilities. Trading is always about probabilities because it is never possible to say that this or that even will definetely happen. There are always chances that everything might go against your plans and your perceptions. That is why it is significant to know and calculate risks and math expectancy in order to realise how much money you are ready to risk in this or that particular situation.

Math is important. You won’t be able to understand anything if you don’t know basic math. But you won’t enter trading if you don’t know what profit means. If you know what profit is, you definitely know addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. If you know this much it should be enough. You also don’t need to be accurate in your calculations as you can always use a calculator.
