I was just replying to a thread where someone has been practicing, and they think they are ready to go, all they could manage to scrape together was $25,000 to turn it into $250,000. So my question to you all, is what kind of money management do you employ (in general terms). I'm not referring to trade management (placing of stops, multiple posns, runners, etc), I am referring to money allocation. How much of your account do you allocate to each trade, and do you adjust it? I'll start. For me personally I have many different systems, and each gets a different money management allocation. A lot of it depends on the frequency of the system, the stop loss used and the historic drawdown. If it's a very frequent system, I am more aggressive since I know that my risk is spread out over more trades. It's like 1 coinflip per day, verses 100 flips per day. I know the more frequent one will be easier to achieve its expected result without streaks against me. Then I make sure that the allocation can survive the worst historic drawdown in backtesting, plus I put a cutoff at approximately 1/2 that. That's some of the basics of what I do, so I am curious what others use? EMAIL REMOVED - STOP POSTING YOUR EMAIL PLS (MODERATOR).
