The risk sizes mentioned throughout this thread are ridiculously high.

0.5 lots on a $500 account? UHH?? Or 0.1 on $500? Get your greed and impatience under control!! Horrible risk management.

I risk around 0.01 lots on a $100,000 account and I've taken a $10,000 (at 0.001 lots) to $100,000 in under 15 months - live trading.

Now think about that.

As in 10% in 15 months? :-k

What extremeforex is probably doing:

If you are trading $1000, 4 micro is your min and 50 micro might be your max for a spread of 12.5 min units.
If you are trading $10000 & 4 micro is your min, 500 micro might be your max for a spread of 125 min units.

Basically what you are doing is saying $1000 is what I have to risk and $9000 is used for leverage...
Your potential energy/profit is your position size:
Your long term potential does not change by much, but your short term potential is greatly reduced; most people cannot profit short term so it is likely not problematic ;)

I'd say that an account <= to ## (4 micro, 3-4k account) is more than enough.

AliasSmith,

How was I being rude?

MightyOne,

Interesting and good idea. However, that's not what I'm doing.

I should have been more clear, 0.01 lots PER trade (on $100,000) and I always have more than one trade in the market.

AliasSmith,

You derived all that from "tsk tsk Manual Trading" ?

I'm only teasing relax. I don't think its' stupid, virtually all strategies start their life manually. Ultimately, all strategies should be finalized by automation for plenty of good reasons. People hell bent on manual trading may never realize this, particularly if they don't understand the concept of 'regime change.'

That's where 'tsk tsk' comes in.

As for money-management. Yeah most of you don't have any clue if you're trading 0.5 lots on a $500 account.
