Money Management System - What is it,
how do we do it, what is it for and does
large or small a traders portfolio, the principles are the
stock market traders can consistently make money even if their win-lose
ratio is no more than that 50% that can be achieved through the
flipping of a coin as a trading strategy, simply by trading with money
management and ensuring that their
gains are significantly higher than their losses.
By contrast, a trader can have a significantly higher win to lose ratio
and still lose money overall. If the losses incurred are not limited
and kept to a minimum, gains made from many trades can be completely
eroded on one bad trade. Weeks or perhaps months worth of hard earned
profits can simply disappear in a very short period of time if losses
are allowed get out of control.
What is Trading and Investment
A Trading Money
Management system is an often overlooked part of a stock market trading
strategy. The vast majority of traders focus entirely on their
potential profit from a trade and tend to overlook the risks from
that could be incurred from that trade if it goes against them.
A successful trader will always consider the potential losses in
conjunction with potential gains before entering any trade. In contrast
to the majority of traders, they will always place greater emphasis on
their potential loss than they do on what they may stand to gain.
Losses + Big Wins =
Ensuring that losses are kept to a minimum is an essential part of this
simple, but effective equation.
order to become consistently successful,
it is essential for traders to develop their own stock market Trading
System that they are comfortable with, and suits their individual style
of trading. A day trader will be able to tolerate a much smaller
potential loss on each trade, than a position trader who is investing
for the long term.

Tolerance of Risk
one of us has our own individual levels of tolerance to risk before it
starts to affect our sense of good judgment so it is important to find
the level at which we are comfortable with as individuals. There are
two factors in this part of the equation, losses in monetary terms, and
losses in terms of points and how wide our stop loss levels should be.
a market with an average daily range of say 13 points, one day trader
may see 1-2 points as an acceptable risk whereas another trader may
find that their trading strategies may return a high proportion of
but generally incur a wider draw down before the trade moves into
In this case it is imperative that the trader maintains the balance of
the equation by adjusting trade position size to accommodate the wider
stop loss levels to ensure that the potential loss remains in
proportion. This smaller trading position size will of course reduce
potential gains form the trade but no trader will ever go bust by
a profit! It then becomes a discussion about the varying degrees
of success, rather than the immediate problem of consistently losing

come a point when the margin of error becomes so wide that a trade
must be considered as a slightly longer swing or a position trade
rather than a short term day trade.
In our example of a market with an average daily range of 13 points,
for a day trader who may be looking for a short term move of only 3-5
points intraday, simple arithmetic confirms that risking perhaps 10 points or more on a
means the trader
then needs to have a trading strategy that has a win-lose ratio of up
to 3-1 just to break even
over any period of time.
This in turn, severely limits the degree of success that this trader is
ever likely to achieve, as the maximum potential is obviously a
completely unrealistic 100%. They would then need at least a 66% win
just to break even so it would not leave much potential for achieving

In addition to employing a Trading
Money Management system for individual trades, in stock market trading
it is important to have a wider Money Management system for controlling
the overall effects of those trades on the bigger picture. Their system
should help traders answer specific questions like these, in order to
help them develop their successful stock market Trading Money
