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.
