A general level of mathematics is always needed in every aspect of our life, even in forex, so yea, it's pretty useful to know your numbers.

Most new traders think their win rate is the most important math in their trading. It is not, you risk/reward ratio will determine your profitability more than a win rate. ... Capping your risk makes it easier to have a reward that is multiples of your potential risk. If you risk $100 to make $300 it is a 1:3 risk/reward.

For being a good trader you do not need to be an expert in math. Basics knowledge of math will do the work. Learnt to read the market. Observe charts as much as possible. Do demo practice and apply what you are learning. Learn by doing experiments. Have a learning attitudes. You have to spend a lot of time in learning.

Actually, basic knowledge in math of course is required in trading in order to calculate possible profit and possible losses. Moreover you have to calculate how much money from your deposit you should use for one deal. In my opinion, math is important in your life, not in trading. For trading you need just basic knowledge as I said. Nevertheless, if you like math and you're fond of learning math you can also try to calculate the possibility of your win or lose. However, these methods would better not be used, because it's so silly to calculate. You will just provide yourself with negative emotions in case of unpleasant consequences.

It depends on your approach to trading. If you employ algorithms or sophisticated quantitative models, then I'm sure you'd need to understand a lot of high-level math.

Whether you make money is another question. You could be very gifted at math and still blow up your account if you ignore the fundamental financial or economic factors in the markets and fail to manage risk appropriately.

Yes, forex demands trades to be good with mathematical skills. However, it doesn’t mean you require knowledge of advanced maths. Knowledge of percentages is essential.

There are mathematical formulas traders need to be well equipped in handling, such as how to calculate leverage, pips, profits, and margins. Knowledge of descriptive statistics and probability is necessary too.

The question of math in trading is pretty arguable, but, as for me, I do really think that it is better to know math rather than not to know it.

Surely, it is not a must, but, from my perspective, it can give you some advantages especially in comparison with other traders. It is a good habit for trading to be able to calculate and treat numbers with the cold heart. This will definetely help you avoid being overemotional while trading. Learning math will change your mindset and you will see some logical conclusions very vividle and fast. So, I do strongly recommend everyone to learn maths despite the fact that it has no direct influence on trading results.

Yes, you need to have a basic math knowledge to become a good trader. The knowledge concepts like statistical math, percentages, probability, and correction are important. Math knowledge can reduce risk in forex, especially when you know how to apply it in position sizing.

Trading does include maths but in this maths a person does not need to be the top of class in the subject. You just need to have enough knowledge to use a calculator. Some trading platforms do most of the calculations for you but still sometimes you need to calculate how much you would like to invest or what risk you can bear.

I do think that math will be useful in trading. Especially, I am talking about the theory of probabilities. Trading is always about probabilities because it is never possible to say that this or that even will definetely happen. There are always chances that everything might go against your plans and your perceptions. That is why it is significant to know and calculate risks and math expectancy in order to realise how much money you are ready to risk in this or that particular situation.
