How to win the trading game?

  1. Trading and investing is easy when you know what you do. It's only the game of probabilities. Just a slight edge over long run will make you a winner. Conversely, look for fast, overleveraged and not tested claims and you will end up in those countless failures.
  2. You should diversify to minimize your risk, so add at least 10 strategies to your portfolio.
  3. Calculate your minimum account size. Our AAM ("Absolute account minimum") is history based minimum to cover margin, intraday and strategy drawdown for 1 lot. You definitely should trade less than that. For example, 2 x AAM account would mean ~200% margin level on your platform in the worst case. It also means that your minimum account size would be around 10 (diversification) x 2 x AAM.
  4. In the future we would introduce correlations between strategies, so you can avoid getting into similar trades that usually increase risk, so you can allocate more efficiently.
