Disliked{quote} With respect, I disagree. I don't know how to calculate pip value, nor do I want to calculate pip value and lot size for every single currency-pair I trade, and correct it for my account being in GBP, and convert that into lot size.All I know is I want to risk 1% of my account,and I know my entry, SL and my TP. I put that into an EA, and the EA calculates it for me.Ignored

we do not speak here about MA ? different topic

this is the most simplest and concise rules.

the**miracle **here is that: PV is always XXXDDD for EURUSD or biscuits or XAGUSD or BTCUSD or NAS100 or whatever.

common rule!** PV=XXXDDD** -- very simple and unique for any instrument.

what is the PV of EURUSD? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

what is the PV of GBPNZD? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

what is the PV of USDZAR? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

what is the PV of OILUSD? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

what is the PV of KRWUSD? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

what is the PV of DOW30? ans: it is*XXXDDD*

if you do not know this rule, the market is not your appropriate place. you know there are a plenty of intruders in "forex"

Disliked{quote} this is the best excuse/solution for anybody can not learn basics. you know people minds are different. but to be professional in risk analysis, you must master market math basics. if not, please do not use word "risk analysis" in your posts/live.Ignored

The thing is,

A good metaphor is an engineer (which I have been). To design a skyscraper, do we have to know how to derive the mathematics of solid mechanics from first principles? The answer is a very resounding no. We use rule-of-thumb calculations which will yield slightly-conservative solutions, which we can do in 1/10th the time of a complex mathematical solution.

Traders are like engineers. We are concerned with the practicalities of building a building (designing a profitable trading system). We are not concerned with first-principle mathematical calculations when we could just use a pre-built tool or simplified equation.

I have no doubt there are 7-8 figure trades that aren't 'masters at market math basics', as you describe. Many traders I know that have worked at IB's have literally very few mathematical skills compared to an engineer, yet they make a lot of money.

Here's a final quesiton for you - Are you calculating your PV and lot size manually for every trade you take? Why?

Disliked{quote} Please can you describe what you mean by risk analysis? My example of '1%' was just an example. I could've said 2%, 3%. I can even get into a scaling plan which ensures my maximum annual drawdown is never more than 10% of my total account value in a year. I can adjust that for my own risk tolerance. The thing is, none of the above risk mitigation requires what you refer to as market math basics. A good metaphor is an engineer (which I have been). To design a skyscraper, do we have to know how to derive the mathematics of solid mechanics...Ignored

I still think there are a large number of profitable traders who don't do such calculations, because they simply have 1 open trade at any time, or minimise their exposure in some other simple way.

Whatever works for you man. I feel like the less complex math is in my life, the better.

How to prove in advance MCP=I=96 pips?

rule

I = (1-S)/R*ZZZXXX** * 10^(d-r)**

=(1-S)/R*CHFJPY*** 100**

S=30% = StopOutMarginLevel

R=100 = Leverage

(1.00-0.30)/100*137*100 = 0.7*137=96

rule

I = (1-S)/R*ZZZXXX

=(1-S)/R*CHFJPY

S=30% = StopOutMarginLevel

R=100 = Leverage

(1.00-0.30)/100*137*100 = 0.7*137=96
