Most traders fail to understand the breadth of risks associated with the management of a trading business. In large part this is due to the fact that most trading experts ? including many speakers at IFTA and ATAA conferences ? as well as most trading books and courses restrict their discussion of risk to two main topics. ?Where should I put my stop?? and ?How big should my position be?? Whilst discussion of these issues is critical for trade management they often fail to consider the interconnectivity of our complex world and the risks we experience both in trading and life. The purpose of this micro lesson in risk management is to make you think differently about a number of common risks that we all experience as traders.

During this conversation I will review the current landscape of Technical Analysis and consider what it is that binds our discipline together. I will consider a mixture of some of the more common trading risks discussed in the literature and those that are equally common - but rarely discussed. Consideration will also be given to emergent risks. For each risk identified, effective mitigation strategies will be outlined.
In keeping with the Conference?s emphasis on the practical application of knowledge a specific tool and methodology for the management of any risk will be provided. The presentation will be sufficiently grounded in the evidence to enable attendees to separate the facts about risks from the hype and the headlines.
