Exposing a Trader’s Blind Spot – The Most Overlooked and Critical Aspect of Trading

Traders know that position sizing is important, but because it requires some math calculations and some extra effort many traders simply use a fixed trade quantity for all trades. Why position sizing is so vital is summed up by Perry J. Kaufman in his book, New Trading Systems and Methods; «A trading system alone will not insure success without proper risk control beginning with individual trades… therefore the size of the position, the markets to trade, and when to increase or decrease leverage becomes important for financial survival.» As Mr. Kaufman points out, risk management via proper position sizing done on a trade by trade basis is vital to your trading account survival.
