Is there any free Money Management software? I've been looking all over but it seems like there is hardly any to be found. Sure if you pay an arm and a leg you might end up with something. If you happen to come across a free money management software for traders, let us in on it.

If you want something really advanced you could use this http://lspm.r-forge.r-project.org/ It is based of off Ralph Vince work It uses R I know MSA offers free trials http://www.adaptrade.com/

Thanks bradypreston, I have tried out MSA and it's a very well made software. Still hard to use in " real time" live trading but a nice piece of software regardless.

I am a total noob in FX & MM and I am having difficulty with understanding Market System Analyzer L Could you explain it to me as if I am 2 year old, step by step with examples? Alpari FX, Margin 1:500, Margin per 0.01 Lot is 3 USD USDJPY trades are Historically max loss was -9.29 USD for Lot 0.01, but stoploss is possible -16 USD loss for 0.01 Lot And according to Metatrader 4 trading charts, price on multiple occasions was very close to hitting stoploss -16 USD before bouncing back and closing in profits or less losses. Thus, I put in MSA that maximum risk was -16 USD for each 0.01 LOT as my strategy dictates Initial Balance in MSA 1000 USD Max lot size 10 000, because Alpari FX allows max 100 Lots 100 /0.01 = 10 000 MSA lots Initial Margin Per Contract 4$, in reality Alpari wants 2 USD margin for USDJPY if leverage 1:500 Just to be safe… Monte Carlo 10 000 samples, F7 Optimize Position Size, Fixed Fraction from Equity These are historical trades 12.52 12.48 1.52 5.68 6.48 -1.95 -1.92 6.1 9.58 5.24 -4.96 14.33 15.69 6.58 7.38 11.96 11.24 4.64 5.85 14.56 8.39 4.31 9.07 1.02 -3.12 -0.18 3.18 -9.29 -4.54 6.41 5.55 12.75 12.49 -0.14 18.17 22.79 -2.3 -1.33 21.17 7.55 usdjpy.msa Position Sizing: Fixed Risk Fixed Fraction (%): 100.0 (Optimal) Starting Equity: $1,000.00 Equity High: $1,542,937.19 Equity Low: $156.22 Net Profit: $1,541,937.19 Final Equity: $1,542,937.19 Return on Starting Equity: 154200.% Number of Trades: 41 Percent Profitable: 73.17% Max Contracts: 10,000 Largest Win: $227,900.00 Ave Win: $51,428.94 Max Consec Wins: 26 Largest Loss: ($334.44) Ave Loss: ($84.63) Max Consec Losses: 7 Win - Loss Ratio: 607.7 Ave Trade: $37,608.22 Ave Trade (%): 24.10% Max Drawdown: $843.78 Max Drawdown (%): 84.38% Profit Factor: 1657. Return - Drawdown Ratio: 1827. Modified Sharpe Ratio: 0.7725 100% or even 150% of equity Optimal Fixed Fraction, really? What is it mean? I have to risk 100% of my account on each trade? How should I use MSA results then? Here is answer from MSA creator You’re not understanding how the program works. 100% fixed fraction doesn’t mean you risk 100%. It only risk up to the maximum position size. You could put a fixed fraction of 10000000%, and you wouldn’t be risking any more than the maximum size. That’s why you have a maximum size. The 100% result is just what the optimization gives you because you set a hard limit on the size. That’s why I suggested you use the Parameter Studies feature so you can see how the fixed fraction is related to the results. MSA has been used by over 1000 traders for more than 10 years, including many professional money managers. The calculations have been fully verified. I’m sorry if the functionality of the program is not clearer. What I calculate lot size like this double current_balance = 0; int nOrders = 0; datetime OCTs[]; for(int iPos=(OrdersHistoryTotal()-1); iPos >= 0; iPos--) if ( OrderSelect(iPos, SELECT_BY_POS, MODE_HISTORY) // Only orders w/ && OrderMagicNumber() == Magic // my magic number && OrderSymbol() == Symbol() // and my pair. && OrderType() <= OP_SELL//Avoid cr/bal forum.mql4.com/32363#325360 ) { double True_Profit = OrderProfit()+OrderSwap()+OrderCommission(); current_balance += True_Profit; if (debug) Print("True Profit="+True_Profit+";current_balance="+current_balance+";OrderProfit="+OrderProfit()+";OrderSwap()="+OrderSwap()+";OrderCommission()="+OrderCommission()+";OrderType()="+OrderType()+";OrderOpenPrice="+OrderOpenPrice()+";OrderClosePrice="+OrderClosePrice()+";OrderOpenTime()="+OrderOpenTime()+";OrderTicket()="+OrderTicket()+";OrderLots()="+OrderLots()); // current_balance // double profit = (OrderClosePrice()-OrderOpenPrice())*OrderLots()*MarketInfo(OrderSymbol(),MODE_TICKVALUE)/Point; //if (debug) Print ("profit="+profit); } current_balance += initial_deposit; if (debug) Print(Symbol() +";AccountFreeMargin()="+AccountFreeMargin()+";initial_deposit="+initial_deposit+"; current_balance="+current_balance); current_balance=current_balance*0.95; double normalized_balance = NormalizeDouble(current_balance,2); double RiskDollars = (RiskPercent/100) *normalized_balance; RiskDollars = NormalizeDouble(RiskDollars,0); // slippage? spread? double RiskStopLoss = StopLoss*10 +Slippage*10+MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_SPREAD); double pip_value = (MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_TICKVALUE)/ MarketInfo(Symbol(), MODE_TICKSIZE)) * Point; // true stable pip value in USD deposit currency Print (" RiskDollars="+ RiskDollars+";RiskStopLoss="+RiskStopLoss+";pip_value="+pip_value+";1 lot risk RSL*pipvalue="+(pip_value*RiskStopLoss)); LotSize = NormalizeDouble( RiskDollars/(pip_value*RiskStopLoss),2) ; http://postimg.org/gallery/z33u7clg/3532b517/
