How to manage your money when trading?
Remember that you must maintain good emotional control, learn when it is time to have yourself so as not to generate an unwanted loss and ruin your hot streak for the day.
- Spend: One of the tips that Cristian Ap offers is that you do not allow yourself to spend what you cannot lose, which means, if you analyze the market and you can see that it will be a tough day, it is better that you use a demo account to trade and not your real account, so as not to cause any kind of loss. But if you find yourself with the possibility of spending it, do it because it is a strategy that will allow you to reach your capital in an easier way and if you suffer a loss, you can face it.
- Percentage: Even if you are an expert trader with too much experience, my advice, is that your operations must not exceed 5% of the capital that you are allowed to spend. This will help you not directly affect your emotions, and you may feel angry or sad about a loss that involves too much money in your daily trading.
- Stop: I recommend that after 2 failed operations you must stop trading with your real account, this will help you control your emotions while you are trading and can help you not lose more money than you have planned.
My experience following these steps and the advice provided by Cristian Ap in all his videos have helped me to increase my real account. Another benefit that I have acquired is getting rid of bad habits that previously prevented me from reaching my goal.
