Position Sizing

Now that we’ve learned the hard lesson of trading too big, let’s get into how to correctly use leverage using proper “position sizing.”

Position sizing is setting the correct amount of units to buy or sell of currency pair.

It is one of the most crucial skills in a forex trader’s skill set.

Forex Position Sizing

Actually, we’ll go ahead and say it is THE most important skill.

Traders are “risk managers” first and foremost, so before you start trading real money you should be able to do basic position size calculations in your sleep… or at least after you wake up, still groggy, and try to trade the NFP report!

Finding the position size that will keep you within your risk comfort level is relatively easy…and we use the phrase “relatively easy” loosely here. Besides, if Pipcrawler, who can’t tell his pinkies from his toes, can do it, then you can too!

Depending on the currency pair you are trading and your account denomination (is your account in dollars, euros, pounds, etc??), a step or two needs to be added to the calculation.

Now, before we can get our math on, we need five pieces of information:

  1. Account equity or balance
  2. Currency pair you are trading
  3. The percent of your account you wish to risk
  4. Stop loss in pips
  5. Conversion currency pair exchange rates

Easy enough right? Let’s move on to a few examples.

恰当头寸规模的重要性

既然我们已经学到了交易太大会付出沉痛的代价,让我们了解一下如何使用杠杆配合恰当的“头寸规模”。

确定头寸规模是指设定正确的货币对买卖单位。

这是交易者技能套装中最重要的技巧之一。

事实上,我们将进一步,将其称为重要的技能。

交易者首先是“风险管理者”,因此在用实际的资金交易前,你应该能在睡梦中计算基本的头寸规模……或至少在你醒来,仍然睡眼惺忪的时候,试着交易一下非农就压报告!

找对头寸规模将能较轻松的使你处于适宜的风险之中……这里我们随便使用了“较轻松”这个词。

根据你所交易的货币对和你的账户币种(你的账户是美元、欧元、英镑,等等??),计算时需要包含的一两个步骤。

开始计算前,我们需要五点信息:

1.账户净值或余额

2.你所交易的货币对

3.你愿意冒的风险比率

4.止损设定点数

5.转换货币对汇率

够简单吧?让我们来看几个例子。
