With a small account you need to take risks though otherwise the profits are so low that there is no point
Well when trading you are always taking risks regardless the account size.
The thing is to determine what is acceptable risk for you and keep it that way.
IMHO I would rather risk 50$ of $200 account than 50$ of $200,000 account:)
Another thing is to define your stop loss the way it protect your account when necessarry but not too often.
