    Mere increasing the lot size will not increase our profits

    Relationship between lot size and profits : Apparently there is a direct relationship between the lot size and the profits we earn and the losses we incur. When we chose the lot size we need to trade with we have to be very careful. A big lot not only increase our profit but also magnify our losses.


    The big mistake
    : Many traders, both newbies and experienced think that a big lot will give them a big profits. So in the lure of earning huge profits they trade with big lots and this is what make them victims to stop outs and severe losing. Increasing our profits is not as easy as increasing our lot size.

    Lot size should be chosen according to the strategy : If we want to avoid stop outs and severe loss the best thing is to trade with planning and discipline. We need to trade with proper strategy and shield our trades with the protection of risk management. Lot size should be chosen taking into account our risk capacity. Planned trading alone can be profitable trading.

    Yes this a true that when we will trade with caution so that we are using lower trading volumes and are also aware of the fact that that if the trading lot size is less then the profits that we will be getting will be less and under control. This will in turn help us to balance our trading systems so that we can trade for a longer time period.

    In any trade that we are doing if we will use such trading lots that are not too high on the Margin requirements then the trading is a breeze for us as the risks will come down and stay under control for us

    That is right brother many people trade with emotions like greed and always take maximum risk and aim to get big profits. When they get big losses or get stop outs they are left with only one option and that is regretting their acts. But regretting our wrong trading will not bring our profits back. Instead we should make the determination to learn from the mistakes and improve ourselves as traders.

    [lang=id]1. with good strategy and understanding to manage the business properly, increasing lots size will give more profit and grow with good
    2. with lack of knowledge and do not know how to trade. it will blow up the account rapidly
    so to increase lots size, traders need to understand for what they will do and based on their needs to use the system[/lang]

    You know one thing dear it is usually the beginner traders who trade with big lots and high leverages. But most successful traders usually do not exceed a leverage of 1 :100. Of course they maintain a larger trading capital. So when we have good knowledge and read experiences of Forex masters we will learn the importance of opening calculated lot sizes. High risk trading will sooner or later lead all to losses.

    if you get a profit then the balance will be greater, then you can increase the size of the lot. but if you loss, then the balance will be reduced, then you can reduce the size of the lot. for me to adjust the lot size money management rules. it will create a more secure trading account

    [lang=id]yes dear friend, the success traders will use leverage 1 : 100 because they have enough capital for trading so there is no problem for margin to sustain the order, and different with them who as newbies and start it with low capital, they will need larger setting for it, but we knew that this is a process for all of us till we get the right setting for trading forex[/lang]

    I know much of the issues of the lots size and the way to use it to gain in the market. But this should be down in the best reasonable manner. No trader having success in the market would risk to much, if you know you want to use high lot, then invest high money in the market. And with good management you would have a say in the market.

    I have always stressed that for a Forex trader it is very important that he should understand the importance of a correct trading leverage in his trading. There are times when his trading will not give him correct results and the most obvious mistake that a trader does is not using Money management in his trading and taking High and unwarranted risks in his trades. This will always put a pressure on him as he will be bound to take such trading decisions that are not correct.

    This is why we have to consider before increasing our trading Lot sizes and be careful while doing our trading
