MONEY MANAGEMENT

Drawdowns

Money Management is something that you should examine only after you have considered survivability. Therefore, we must look drawdowns first.

Drawdown is the maximum distance from a equity high before you make a new equity high. It is the risk you would take if you began your trading system at the worst possible time. A drawdown is usually quoted as the percentage between the peak and the trough.

Drawdowns are always bigger in real-life than in paper trade. Often things happen in real-life that never happen in theoretical tests.

The most important question that we can conclude from the largest drawdown is the following:

How much capital do I need to trade in one particular Market?

Capital is our most precious asset because it let us Trade and run our Trading System as a businnes. Even if you know that your system makes money over the Long Run you need moeny to trade.

Rate of Return, or Return on Invesment (ROI) is something that you should examine only after you have considered survivability. Therefore, we must look drawdowns first.

Exit Strategy

Many expert traders agree that implementing a professional-level exit strategy is one of the primary cornerstones of futures trading. In fact, a strong exit strategy is as integral to a trader's success as a strong entry strategy. Before you put on a trade, you should know your exit strategy!

Market Losses

The deeper the losses the less likely you are to recover those losses as they require ever increasing gains just to break-even.
