Most of the forex trader thinks that to make a constant profit from forex market one needs such a strategy that can generate 80/90% winning rate, but this is not fully correct. Making profit from forex is not only depends on the forex strategy or on forex signals but also on a successful money management policy.

Money management is not a single term but the whole process from opening trade to till closing. Whatever the strategy you are using you can make a profit if you have good money management.
Most of trader even newbie traders have also winning accuracy rate above 60% but cant makes a consistent profit because they don’t apply money management properly.
There are many big boys are making a continuous profit even with 40% winning rate.

I always suggest my fellow traders and alert followers at PreferForex for taking 2% risk and manage their trade according to my money management guide.

Forex Money Management Plan

Let’s give you an example of how money management can play a vital role in making profit besides a forex strategy:

In Forex Trading Take 2% Risk. How to calculate this?

Let’s assume a trader who has a 40% winning rate only and his risk/reward ratio is 1:2. He applies 2% risk per trade.
As his winning rate is 1:2, Let’s assume his take profit is 60 PIPs and SL is 30 PIPs
Also as his winning rate is 40%, he can make 4 trades profit and 6 trades loss among 10 trades.

As his risk is 2% and risk/ reward ratio is 1:2 so, from a losing trade he loses 2% from his account which is equivalent to 30 pips loss and from a profitable trade he can growth 4% on his account which is equivalent to 60pips profit

Now let’s calculate the pips he is making or losing from 10 trades.

From 4 trades so, he generates 60 x 4= 240 pips profit

And from 6 losing trades he loss 30 x 6 = 180 pips

So, on average this trader can make the profit from 10 trades is 240-180= 60 pips

As a profit of 60 PIPs is equivalent of 4% growth, so he can grow 4% on his account form 10 trades. So you see a trader having only 40% winning rate can make a profit by applying good money management. To trade batter need also maintain proper risk ratio, strategy diversification, and analysis or current market moves in every aspect. To maintain proper risk ratio needs to set standard take profit and stop loss that could give consider as the best forex signal to enter and exit in a correct market price.
