I beg to differ.if you are using a trend following system then during high impact news this system will give u decent profits but if you are using Grid type EA then trade during high impact news will be disastrous for your accout.

I second that. Risk understanding is critical to trading. Without that even a good trader will lose all their money
I third it
Why will risk management stop you failing? Does this mean even if I randomly enter trades I will still be able to profit if I use risk management?
If you are using reasonable risk management then you aren't going to be just randomly trading.
Trade with a strategy that uses accurate analysis of a high probability set ups for entry.
You make it sound so simple!. I get risk management, that is a process but getting a good strategy.. now that is tough
It IS that simple. If you manage your risks properly, then you will protect your account against massive losses. Trade only when the market indicates a profitable setup. This may happen several times a day some times, while other times it may be weeks before the market presents a high probability setup.
Losses happen, however, it's how you handle the losses and decrease your risk that determines if your are going to be a profitable trader or not.
Don't trade just to trade.
Trade to be profitable.
Manage your risks.
Automate where possible and reasonable.
Check your emotions at the door, and never allow them to dictate your trading.
