Actually without proper money management even the best strategy would yield poor result. Money management begins with determining the lot size or allocation of capital to a trade. This is followed by assessment of risk to reward ratio and usage of stop loss and take profit facility. Unless and otherwise a trader is adept in all the criteria mentioned above, it would be very difficult to come out successfully in the long term. Very few traders are exceptional in money management and so they perform exceedingly well than others even when similar trading strategy is used.
To change your trading result, just change your thinking.

Money Management is a strategy that may decide the trader’s longevity. Even if somebody is a good trader but poor management will result chaos in his trading. Money management is all about risk management and leverage. A person with 70% win rate,poor money management on the 20% can wipe out whereas 60% win rate is still better with sound money management plan. You can avoid revenge trading and high risk trades. Although risk is inevitable but don’t risk more than you can’t afford.
