In Foundations of Trading Part 1, I stated the number one rule was the preservation of capital. We have no control over what markets do but we can take control of our money management and risk. In this video, I lay out some basic guidelines for working out maximum stop size with ATR (average true range) and designing our risk management plans. The image below shows an older example of a maximum stop size for AUD and ES. In the video, I show how to get the current maximum stops. You can use my simple guidelines for ideas in creating your own risk management plan and then ingrain it to the point where it’s not a discipline but a normal part of trading life.
