Managing Your Losses

One of the cardinal rules of Forex trading is to keep your losses small. With small Forex trading losses, you can outlast those times the market moves against you, and be well positioned for when the trend turns around. The proven method to keeping your losses small is to set your maximum loss before you even open a Forex trading position. The maximum loss is the greatest amount of capital that you are comfortable losing on any one trade. With your maximum loss set as a small percentage of your Forex trading float, a string of losses won`t stop you from trading. Unlike the 95% of Forex traders out there who lose money because they haven`t applied good money management rules to their Forex trading system, you will be far down the road to success with this money management rule.

Nice quote. We should agree that each traders have different market views as very few of us trade the same way. However, we have to learn Forex quite similarly as we have do have some knowledge in common.

Re: Managing Your Losses

Nice post Samuel.
One more advice to traders. Don't forget if you have a strategy stick to it! If you are loosing on your trades take a break, re-evaluate and come back with a plan, try to learn from your mistakes. And most important don't forget to follow money management rules- don't risk a high percentage of your equity and use low leverage.

Re: Managing Your Losses

Do not over trade. Never trade more than 25% of your equity. If you found that your analysis is wrong or the market has turned cut your losses fast and switch, don't wait till your stop loss order to be executed. Never add to a lossing position; cut your losses fast.

Re: Managing Your Losses

Setting proper stop losses are important to ensure that your losses are minimized. For traders that donít want to sit in front of their computer every minute they have positions opened, stop losses are your best friend.
