If you follow very simple rules, there is no way you can blow up. Let's say once you enter the trade, you put stop loss and exit. let's say you have some TA chart, which doesn't work at all. it means that you have 50% chance of winning in every trade. All you lose is commission. if you put 5 trades each day trading one contract ES, your cost is like 50$ max. it takes one year to wipe out 10k account. did I miss something here?
