Forex Position Size Calculator

One of the most important skills that you can develop, especially as a currency trader, is the skill of risk management. Learning how to mitigate risk by adjusting one's position in the market is paramount for not blowing up an entire trading account on just a few trades. This is why we've decided to add the position size calculator as tool within your membership.

All you have to do is fill in the required fields below, and the calculator will figure out how large your position in the market should be in order to satisfy your pre-defined risk tolerance. We recommend that traders start with a pre-defined risk of 2% per trade. However, if you find yourself in a drawdown, you may want to limit or reduce your risk in order to regain some confidence and protect your account.

In order to use the position size calculator, all you need to do is select the currency pair that you are trading, input your account balance, and the percentage of your account that you want to risk (Example: Enter 2 for '2% risk')
