Money management is the greatest tool of all for new traders
#forex #trading #pips #markets #finance Do you want to learn to trade all types of markets with proper money management, risk reward trades and excellent monthly returns? Then check out this below.....
Just thought Id write an email after last weeks trading to see if people can cope and manage their losing trades correctly.
Do you have a set risk reward setup, calculate your trades correctly so you not always just entering at 0.1, 0.5 or 1.0 or whatever size you trade. Do you calculate the size of your account and work out what lot size you should be trading based on your stop loss, risk amount and account balance. If your not then you really should be. People ask for a win/loss ratio on trades and this really does not matter or have any influence on how much money/percentage return you make each month and year. You can actually lose almost 60% of your trades and still make an excellent return each and every month. So I just want to remind all you traders, make sure you have a plan and stick to it DO NOT deviate from this. Working this way means as you have a few losing trades your risking a % of your lower account balance each time, and as the winners come and the account grows your risking a % of the larger account and this is what allows it to grow.
So stop thinking about how many losing trades you have, simply make sure that your risk reward is correct and if you can get anything above 50/50 then you will guarantee to make money and a good living if you can do this consistently.
Next I want to look over a couple of charts that you may want to look at yourselves and also show the kind of thing we look at every time in our webinars to plan our next few trades in the week ahead. Also dont just enter a trade because price has hit a certain area, get some confirmation of price action 1st, this will save you entering and guessing of just anticipation, this is not trading but simply gambling if no predetermined risk.
Do you look this deeply into your trades before entering them? Do you then calculate your risk reward ratio? Then calculate what size you should be trading on your account size and what risk you should risk on each trade? If you are not doing these things then your going to get swallowed up in the forex world and find it very tough to make money trading these highly volatile markets.
If this is something you would be interested in, not going for 20-30 or 40% a month, but trading exactly how money managers and funds trade looking for great reward trades and making 4-10% a month (10% on good months - not often) so achieving apprx 50-60% a year entering trades 10-15 minutes a day then we can offer that.
Wish you all a Happy Trading week and should you have any questions please email or skype me with the details below :-
Follow through from a manual trader is hard enough. I coded those risk management rules into ATS and now let the probability play out the P/L for me. Check out my ATS12 under my profile. Fixed Risk Per Trade always.

True, I didn't have a journal for the longest time, it didn't even occur to me that I should have one.
Exactly, the trading journal is a great tool to help you become a better Forex trader. Be sure to record all your operations and the reason you opened them. Later on you will be able to see this and evaluate your operations and observe how far you have progressed. I have seen my trading records and have been able to realize how much I have really grown as a forex trader.
