Risk Management in Trading

Retail traders are always on the losing side of the market. And it has been this way for decades. They have never been able to beat professional traders. It is always a retail trader who is crushed. Why do you think this happens to them? The answer the simple. They are always chasing returns and overlook the risk aspect of trading.

There are two sides of every trade: Return and Risk. People invest in stock markets to generated extraordinary returns. We are all here to make money. But a goal of a successful trader, paradoxically, is not to make money. His goal is to trade well. And no trader can trade well if he ignores the most important aspect of trading, "The Risk".

Thus risk has been the backbone of our every trading system. Position sizing, stop losses, risk reward ratio among others has been an integral part of our every trade and every trading system. We address every bit of risk in detail and this is what helps us sustain in long run. You can read more about risk and how we deal with it here...
