All,

Do any of you know where to find different money management methods/systems for trading accounts. Have looked in the search in the community but can't seem to find anything.

Thanks

Money management is the backbone of trading. By money management, I mean to include every trade in the plan. No more than a 2% risk can be taken for each trade. If your balance is 1000, then you can trade at 10 cents, which means 1 cent for every 100. If the profit is like 20 pips, you have to bring stop loss at the entry point.

You can learn about money management systems by watching different videos available on youtube.

Thanks for the info on the risk level. I was wondering more about an equity strategy to control losses/drawdowns.

I think it is best to stick to the 1-2% suggested by @AliaDare but to manually calculate everything. This will give you a much better feel and understanding of the risk and what it means

Hi Aqissiaq & AliaDare and thanks again for the feedback.

I think you are only thinking of the trading side of things that I fully understand after trading for a number of years. However, what I am asking is more about how to manage your account system. For example adding in a system that stops you trading after you hit 50% of your previous days losses or reducing your trading risk after 1, 2 or 3 losing trades.

This is a big part in forex trading and is what moved me forward from a break even trader in forex. What I am trying to find out is what other methods or systems are people using in this area.

Thanks

Money management is very important for trading. Don't risk more than 2% in a trade. Also I prefer not to open multiple trades at a time. If you open two trades at a time it would be 4% which is not good. Survival in the market is the first skill we should achieve.

However, sometime I also open 2 or 3 trade in single day if I find good and potential trade. But I adjust my SL into my risk ratio what I set for per trade.

I agree that 1-2% to risk is a good rule of thumb.

It is not possible to succeed in trading without following money management. If a trader wants to achieve trading success, he must follow Money Management.

Money management and risk management are the two most important skills that I have learnt over the years of my trading experience.

I agree. If you are good at money management and risk management, you can avoid potential losses.

Another important point is the ability to take into account all the small details that are necessary for money management.

It is worth noting that money management is a very voluminous concept, but in the context of Forex trading, it boils down to several basic methods. They are quite easy to use and allow you to limit losses.

What is the difference between money management and risk management?

When trading small amounts, it should be remembered that your task is not to make money, but to learn how to trade, so you should not count on a large profit at first.

We need risk management system so that we can minimize our risk. Without proper risk management it's not possible to survive in the market. We need a good winning percentage and a sustainable risk management policy.
