Forex Risk Management – How to calculate the correct lot size in forex trading

Forex Risk Management
As mention in the part 1 series of Forex Risk Management.
Proper risk calculation per trade is extremely vital if you want to make forex trading a CONSISTENT success.
Note that i mention CONSISTENT.
It is because like i always mention, most forex traders can make lots of money in a day, week, or month. But to eventually lose it all.
One of the reason lies in proper money management.
And a proper money management in forex consists of risk management and risk % per trade.
If you do see lots of fictitious claims around the forex education industry where they claim a trader can make $xx,xxx with just $1,000 within weeks.
That is plain hype and all professional forex traders will know that it is not feasible.
Look if they are able to make so much money with just a capital of $1000 within weeks.
Forex Risk Management – How much risk per trade do you think they are risking?
They would have to risk MORE than 50% per trade or even 100% per trade in order to achieve such a feat.
And to achieve such a feat.
They must have a 100% winning record.
Even warren buffet doesn’t have a 100% winning record. LOL.
Therefore such claims are just to bluff and con the public into believing forex trading is so DAMN EASY to make fast and big money.
And when people have such expectations when they start trading, 95% of the time, they will lose it all.
Because the expectation is set WAY TOO HIGH in the first place.
Which in turn has subconsciously affected their risk appetite and greed level.
When that happens, there’s no turning back.
This is precisely why you will need to have a right forex mentor or coach when you start to dip your toes into forex trading.
