    How much you want to lose before want to recover the loss?

    We know forex is risky and we can lose many in quick time too if we don't take proper protection for our account. But you need to decide how much you want to lose before you want to recover your loses. I know you know about it but did not gone though the mathematics and graphs. I bring it for you.

    When you lose about 1% of your equity 1% recovery is good enough to get back to your original equity. When you lose around 2%, 3% or even 5% of your equity then you just need about that amount to recover your loss. But when you have lost 10% then you just need to make more 1.11% to recover loss.


    Situation start to go bad when you lose 15% or more. You can find if you lose 50% of equity then you need to make 100% profit to get to your original equity.


    You just can't come out of the grip of losses when you lose more than 50% of your equity. And it become a Herculean task when you lose 75% or 80% or more.


    So just think, think it well how much lose in a trade is good for your recovery. And now think, will you use money management in your trade or not?

    [lang=id]the traders need to think about the safest way for trading and it will limit their loses, traders have to think wisely and twice before make a decision, and also they have to prepare themselves and get ready to accept some loses with gracefully then they can still make lower the emotion too[/lang]

    Now I tell you why many scalper lose money most of the time in their last trades. Actually 95% scalper take relatively bigger risk with big lot trades ranging from 10 pips to 1000 pips without SL in the trades and money management. If some trade go in 20/30 pips floating loss they open another or two trades hoping can recover loss if market retrace 15/20 pips. When market goes more directional he opens more trades and overall lots are big. Only 30/50 pips more in the same direction and all money are gone. But if the trader allowed the first trade to hit the SL or opened another trade in the opposite direction he would have survived. So better take decision on time and trade with money management all the times.

    We all want money in this market, ad no matter the trading strategy we are using, it is still to getting the money in the fall way we could. And as regarding the scalping you said, it is never has thing, and traders that scalps are going for lower pips, it can never be 100pips, and the scalpers are better with stop loss that is lower than their target.

    i am a scalper too, and just need several pips per trades or close the order immediately when it run at floating positive, of course, all the thing was based on the time frames as the guide for us, and about stop loss, i did cut loss or stop loss, it depends to my needs during in the market

    Probably I could not made you understand what I tried to say in my words about pips. I said many scalper take too high risk keeping only 10 to 1000 pips in hand before getting stopped out. Like opening 1$/pip trade with 20$ invest or 0.1$/pip with 10$ invest without any SL. And as a scalper I know you won't wait to get 100 pip profit. Most trades are closed around 1 to 5 pips profits. I hope it is clear now.

    I think people who are losing a lot of money should take advice from traders who know Forex well. A forum has been create to help all traders who are in need of help. Forex is not very hard market when the traders knows how to deal with it. You said many traders loss their invested money, yes because of their fault. They can not manage money properly.

    we manage money, and discipline to the rule of money management, money management as set trader in limiting risk. I use money management compounding, so the size of the lot following the balance amount. I want a healthy trading account, and use good risk and reward

    It is really good to know you are using money management and compounding for trading. But unfortunately most traders don't use it properly that is why there are so many loser. Sometime I start with strong money management in a fresh account. It goes well for few times. But I get restless and want to earn quickly taking bigger risk and forget the money management and problem starts there. So as a trader we need to follow the money management each time and every time if we want our success.

    You can see when we are trading with big risk only 10/20 pips against you wipes 10%/20% of your equity. Then you just wait and hope to market to get back to your way. But you will find market is going away and you are in even more trouble every moment after that. And finally you blow your account. So better lose less and learn to take small losses if you want to survive long in the market.
