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.
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.
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.
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.
