6:00pm: Member Speaker - Joseph Barrington-Lew – Manager JBL

Topic: Money, Risk and Trade Management

Many traders spend hours trying to determine what to buy and neglect what many successful traders believe is more important, correct position sizing to controlling risk.  Many Traders have several excel spread sheets lying around to help them and then others spend more time updating other spread sheets to determine how their shares and portfolio(s) are performing. Many feel placing a stop loss will help control the risk they are exposed to and keep them out of harm’s way.

Risk management or having a stop loss in place is vital to trading success, but position sizing (how many) is the missing key to successful risk management.

Joseph will show why knowing how many times you are right does not determine your success. He will briefly cover Trade Expectancy and the formula for calculating it and will show how ‘JBL Risk Manager’ handles all that is required for correct Money, Risk and Trade Management, and how relatively easy it is. This is not new, just a tool that helps to implement these proven strategies, giving control over risk, with help to manage trades with precision.
