    Coins and Bills - The Big Money Management Thread !!!

    The goal of this thread is to give our users the best possible snapshot of risk and money management. The thing is that you can have the best trading system in the world, but if you are not able to manage your money and risks (these are things which you can actually control!), your account is as good as a margin call. How much should I deposit? How much should I risk? How to control my need for big bucks right from the start?

    The smaller the percentage, the better. The longer you can survive. It gives room for you to survive a losing streak that happens even to the top traders to say nothing of newbies and intermediate traders. 1 percent risk is probably good for everybody.

    My capital is of fairly good size, so keeping it small allows for slow solid growth,

    It is absolutely necessary to have good starting capital. Without it you will be always subjected to overleveraging and overtrading. It is best if you start with something like 10k but it will be possible with smaller accounts too not less than 3k I think if everything is precisely checked.

    Having good capital is a plus, the more you start with the larger your trades can be, but regardless of trade size using a Percent Rule to manage your money is the real key. No matter what, you will always trade the same percent amount, so long as your deposit and broker minimum trade size allow you to use the right percent any amount of deposit is OK. Over time it will grow from $250 to $250,000 and all the while you will still be trading X% of your account, which for me is 3%.

    I don’t see any discussions here. Maybe it is time to recap our knowledge and understanding of the money management in general. What is your experience with money management and what are your advices to the others?
