I think the best method to determine trade size and leverages is what is your risk taking capacity. Because if you take high leverages or bigger lot sizes then it will destroy your capital
Rightly said mate. Higher the leverage higher are the chances to blow up your account.
But I literally got convinced here that whether you use low/high leverage, percentage you are gonna use is only proportional to your capital, so it doesn’t really matter
It is true only if the market is going as per your trades, but if there is a major movement in the opposite direction, if you are using higher leverage, it will multiply the losses as well.
The more your practice, the more you learn.

Aim high! Lose a lot! Quit trading!

Okay?! Why not it play safe - itrade less, monitor your trades closely, and quit as per your exit strategy? I always use EA on MT4. You can find that on fxpro and fxview. That leaves me with no room to doubt myself or my backtested trading plan. And at this point I can say that it's all going rather well.

That’s what I would suggest to our friend Kyle also here. Try out different plans, test them out and make for yourself a strong trading plan which should consist of a) entry and exit signs, indicators, reward to risk ratio, leverage, trade size, sl, tp.

I would never suggest this to any beginner. This is quite demotivating for the ones who are planning to learn.

totally depends on the willingness and affordability to lose. there is no particular suggestion or correct lot or trade size.

If someone faced losses, doesn’t mean that everyone would experience the same. Things work differently for different people depending on the fact that how well they are with their experiences.

But there has to be some math to it right? That’s what I am in search of!

With experiences, strategies also matter. A newbie does not have experience but can work on strategies to make profits. And if you are facing difficulties in it, choose a broker who can make it easy for you. I take help of automated trading through fxview and XM when I doubt my strategies.

I have done the same in my starting days but now I myself can make my way out.

The Delorean strategy has taught DELONATION to risk 2% per trade with a gain of at least 4%, a minimum risk to reward ratio of 1:2. With this risk management, someone with an accuracy of 37% could still be profitable.

Start out small.... Like .01 or .02. If you are making consistent pocket change, slowly increase your size. I know the small gains suck but you are practicing your strategy.

@Shaun I also wish to have that experience very soon. I have just started with demo trading and it’s a long way to go yet.

Don’t waste your time in demo trading. You are earning nothing.

You are doing it right @starmyth. Invest a good amount of your time in demo trading so that you don’t get confused in the live market and end up facing losses.

You, surely, are earning something through demo trading. You are earning knowledge to trade in real markets so that you can know about broker’s trading conditions and understand how one can analyse the market. I have been in the trading world for a long time but still I demo trade sometimes. You can try different brokers for the same like Fxview, Etoro, etc. Their demo and live prices are similar.

Exactly Gary, I don’t understand why people are so much against demo trading. Like what’s better than losing nothing and still trading.

I am also demo trading through a broker but it is giving me 0 spreads all the time, I think that’s unrealistic. After reading your comment I think I should also try Fxview or etoro once.
