Forex is a risky business. You can't be risk free here. This is the reason there is something called risk management. By managing your risk you can make good profit. To be expert in risk management you need to study a lot. Don't trade without managing your risk.
Forex is a risky business in which you have to maintain risk to survive the business. If you can't maintain the risk, you can't make a profit consistently. I always maintain a 1: 3 risk-reward. That risk-reward helps me move forward in trading.
Managing the risk is the most demandable ability in Forex market where risk is everywhere. My trading career, many times I fallen a great loss due to lack of exact risk management . now I am studying about this
Money management is the most important thing in forex trading. Good management with an average strategy making profit is possible. But poor money management with best strategy resulting in loss. A good trader is a well money management follower. I personally do not use more than 2% of my capital. My total trades sum up 2% of my capital.
