That is a very debatable subject, but can be determined by your account size (not going to go in it - traders can google it).

What I meant was, make sure you are trading 0.1 lots if that is what you wanted not 1.0 by accident. It happened to me a couple of times. The terminal is set to use 'default' lots (own input) if terminal is reset, or for some unbeknownst reason it loses this setting and uses 'last used' .Maybe you entered a trade that you were very confident about and used a bigger lot size.

Make sure your lot size is right when entering a trade..I have had some nasty (actually they turned out to be good, but could have been nasty) trades - and they were pending orders that triggered during my sleep.

Rihan and what lot size is the right one? :)

the lotsize is being calculated on the basis of your risk management.

lets assume your capital is 1000 XXX (XXX = currency EUR or USD or whatever)
so, if your initial risk is 2% .... this would mean 2% of Capital = 20xxx of money
so, when entering a trade you should place a stop loss. you now need to calculate a lot size LOT.

1.) count the points/pips of the stoploss distance
2.) how big in money would your loss be if the price reached that stoploss? Exactly - it must not be higher than those 2% or 20xxx money
3.) so what you need to know is how much money is one pip / point. You can find out by viewing the website of your broker.
4.) so, the final way to calculate would look like this: Lotsize=NormalizeDouble(Cap*initialr/StopLo/tickvalue,2)
CAP = is your capital, initialr is the 2% initial risk (you need to write 0.02), StopLo = Stoploss distance (in ticks), tickvalue (find it at your broker)
you can also do the math in MS - Excel

good luck

Take the ATR, combine with Bollinger and EMA SMA and learn. Then the grail shall be yours!

Very good explanation my friend. One thing you failed to mention is the use of leverage. The thing is finding the right balance of leverage to use will dictate in many ways how long your account will actually last. Here is how:
Say you have a 1000 usd account and you open the recommended 2% position. Which of course is 20 usd. The reality is if you use to low of leverage, then those 20usd won't be worth nothing worth writing home about as to earn 2% on two low leverage may very well require a profit of 1000 pips.
To high of a leverage and it may only take 10 pips for you to be in red 2%
So the question should be this.
1) How accurate is your system?
2)How many pips on avg do you float in a loss before you tp is hit?

By answering those who questions, you then would be able to pick a leverage which best suits the system you are using.

ad leverage. I think the leverage is being implemented / shown in the 'tickvalue' - if you go with 1:100 EUR/USD one tick will be 1 USD per one Lot.
So if you change leverage you will need to adapt the tickvalue or add a factor - like 2x for 1:200

Look at what happens when you get comfortable with using low lot sizes and you keep listening to people who talk about support/resistance. How would you feel if you bled out like this account has.

You have to know when to use support~resistance and when to ignore it.what kind of trading is going on around the support area,is it strong or weak,strong spike through or just by a few points,plus many other factors,plus get to know one product and how it behaves.

Well in theory it sounds good, but doing it, is another monster. How many traders of all who are on this site, has made more then 50% this month alone?

That's practice,not theory,take for instance the relationship between bonds and FX ,I never see any posts on here about the subject,yet it is a key indicator.Who would believe if I made 50% or not,around FED announcement I made more.

I say it is theory, because you don't have any proof to support your claim.

I understang that you might of had a recommendation, but that is very different from taking the recommendation yourself. I'd also like to point out that straddle trading during high impact news, is by far, the most dangerous thing anyone could ever do. I take it that is why you don't have any accounts to share with us here, because it will reveal how much of gambler you are.

Trading a straddle during high impact news is a basic trade you learn as a professional,Not for beginners.
