I personally check risk management directly and along with it I check risk and reward each time in my trade.
    It is true, the strategy of the trader would be part of what would determine the risk of the trader. Meanwhile, it is very good to know that the risk is not that simple to over look. Forex traders should always try as much as possible to trade with lower risk, this is better than taking higher risk. I do take higher risk at times though, but I would have seen that the trend is strong and I will have my tight stop loss with it.

    Yes low risk trading is good for trader's. Even in long term trending market we could increase the size of our risk but there is no probability of gaining money with a correct market analysis all the time. So better to use low risk and we can increase the size of our lot size according to the market trend condition, we should start with 2 percent per trade risk, and later if market is under your control then you can increase your risk, but make sure that your stop loss should be covered only 2 percent risk of your whole trading account if market comes back to you the other thing is to lock our trade by using stop loss on every breakout.

    Very good sir, but do not mistaken my words, the both high risk or low risk are good for traders, it only depends on how the trader could manage things out. Forex traders need to be very skillful in management if their account based on the risks they are taking. It is very common to risk high, but do so if you have the verves abd good management for it. Else, use low risk for it is safer.

    Low risk is better for trading than high risk especially if you're using huge capital for trading. It's no need to risk high but you only need to keep consistency on profit with low risk but if you're using low capital then low risk trading will be boring because you got only small amount of profits too. So, it is important for trading to remember that the purpose in trading when you're still beginner with small amount of capital, it is not gaining big profit but how to realize consistent profit. Once you could make it happen, you can increase the amount of profit with higher lot size.

    Trading with small risk can help us remain cool all through our trading and avoid shocks and panic, You can risk even smaller amount if you are a scalper and high a very high win ratio. because in trading, draw downs occur and you could get wiped out easily. Following risk management is not an option but a necessity in trading.

    high risk trading can work well with a strong confirmation of bullish or bearish market trend. There is no problem to use a high risk in trading if we are sure that market will remain bullish for bearish for a very long time, or market trend will be up or down. But due to fundamental affect, its very hard to judge the market trend direction some time.

    You ar4 sharing the same view with me on this high risk sir, but it is good to trade the high risk with the professional traders alone. It is not good for the beginning traders, and if a trader wants to be reasonable and more conservative, I do not think high risk is a good idea. But it is good if you know the smarts way out and the way to manage the high risk.

    some times I have some ideas that feel of the nature of the trading in the Forex market , and they are to use as little as lot size comparing to our balance . here we are having two situations . profit is less also the loss is less they will not harm our balance at all .

    You're right. Trading with high risk is better for professional traders because they could manage the risk and gain more profits than losses. Usually, expert traders would use martiangle method in order to gain big profits in short time because expert traders won't make mistakes more than 3 times in a row so they could recover previous loss with current transaction and using double lot size. But they should be ready with the worst possibility too (lose all of the capital) when they trade with high risk.
