Position Size Guide
Stock Market Trading Money
Trading Position Size
the trading position size
correct is a key element of a
stock market Trading
Money Management System. It can make or break a
perfectly good trading strategy and if the sizing of a trading position
correctly applied, it can potentially cause lasting destructive issues
for the trader.
Most new traders are inclined to trade too heavily in proportion to the
amount of trading capital that is available to them. They may even
start off with small trades but are very likely to let these get out of
control either through over confidence or chasing initial losses that
have been incurred.
Why is the Size of Trading
Positions So Important
Why are the levels of trade sizes so
Size is Too Small -
In the case where this is too conservative, a
trader will never make any significant gains and boredom can set in,
leading the trader to becoming complacent and careless about where he
enters a trade. Even if the losses are small, these can mount
up into a significant proportion of a traders capital.
Size is Too Large - When this is set
too high, a small number of losing trades can lead to a
disproportionate sized loss in a traders account. This can then begin
to affect a traders ability to view any trade in an effective and
impassive manner as emotions begin to cloud the traders judgment.
Fear of losing even more capital can lead to the closing a trade at
exactly the wrong moment. The traders new found tendency to focus on
the negatives causes indecision, resulting in additional losses and
smaller gains as winning trades are cut short.
This can lead to significant and long term issues for a trader if it
continues and it is at this point that most new stock market traders
give up and throw in the towel having lost most, if not all of their
initial trading investment.
