you know there are some pretty successful traders on ET, but frankly I am sick and tired of OLD school notion by even THE ELITE traders that you can only risk 1 or 2 percent of your portfolio on any single trade. WRONG I risk 10 % on my day trading account, I have a larger investment account but on a day trading account IF you know what you are doing, risking 10 % is something that YOU SHOULD be doing. frankly all you traders out there, if you are risking only 2 percent of your trading account, you are WASTING you time. I mean think about it if you are a seasoned trader why in the world would you be moving like a god damn snail. No good reason I can think of, I have 50 k in trading account and I regularly risk 5k on single trade. Look, if you are afraid of losing larger portion, you my friend don't know what you are doing I am afraid of wasting my time and not making as much as I should. So I act on it. Am I right, or am I right !
