Position Sizing for prop traders

Discussion in 'Risk Management' started by TradeNYSE, Aug 16, 2007.

  1. For most prop traders, we are given usually minimum of 100:1 on our initial deposit.

    Let's say you have a strategy that you want to play for the same dollar value for each stock...and on every given day 5-20 stocks can be triggered. How do you determine how much you should be risking from a money mgmt point of view?
