    On slow moving pairs, I know traders who place many times their account on the trade. However, with super volatile naked positions they take much smaller positions...

    THOUGHTS on how much of a highly leveraged trader should place on different trades. The key factors to consider when thinking about position sizing?
  2. What type of account size are we talking?

    the more volatillity, the less size you should trade. on a regular trading day you should determine whether its with or against the trend on dif scales, and what type of trade signal it is and then trade accordingly.
