Traders who have real success know that trading is a game of odds, and in the long run, if you stick to your strategies and use healthy strategies with which you conform, you are likely to succeed. To be a successful trader, you should never enter a position that could jeopardize substantial capital. In fact, very rarely will you find an operator who risks more than 10% of its capital in an operation, and 10% is already extremely high. For example, if you deposit $ 25,000 into your trading account, your maximum loss should be $ 2,500, ie a maximum loss of 250 pips for a standard lot of 100,000 units (for a EUR / USD transaction for example) . Generally, try to risk more than 2 to 5% of the capital you have available.
