How much are you willing to risk per trade?
How much money can you hand to the markets and not lose your sleep, your house and your wife?
This is a pretty serious game. Whenever money is involved you will find professionals.
These professionals are waiting to take your money, they often are a lot more patient than you.
Although sometimes very well regulated, there is no ethic whatsoever in this business where every participant is in it to make money.
It is a zero sum game, meaning that there is a loser for every winner. Think about that.
Learning proper money and risk management is key to achieving success in the markets. These skills will help you build a solid and long-lasting foundation for a prosperous trading career.
