9:45 - 12:00: Money Management and Stop-Losses by Colin Nicholson

This is a video recording of Colin Nicholson’s presentation on this topic. (Colin as he has retired from teaching trading/investing principles).


Some traders spend a lot of time looking for the perfect entry but little time adequately considering Money Management techniques, often to their detriment.


What is Money management? It is the part of the trading/Investment plan to allow you to protect your capital and therefore optimize your trading performance.


If you don't apply strict money management, you can't win on the financial markets. Managing your risk well means having the right position sizes, knowing how to place and move your stop losses, taking into account the risk/return ratio. Money management allows you to trade without stress. [A quote from].


In this presentation Colin Nicholson covers the following points:

  • Two sell-stops;
  • Capital at risk;
  • Position size calculation;
  • Position size examples;
  • Sell-stops in action.
