Shaan Stevens -The Risks of Trading Forex
Like any trading or investment vehicle, there is a high level of financial risk in trading Forex. In particular, the increased amount of leverage offered in the Forex market means that a trader can lose all, or a large portion, of his trading capital if the market makes a significant move against the trader's position.
Successful traders are aware of this risk, and carefully plan their trades in order to minimize the risks to their trading capital. Even with implementing risk management tools, the risks of trading Forex remain substantial.
There are also specific steps that a trader can take to minimize the risks involved in Forex trading, particularly involving safe ways to use the margin. Calculating the Risk-Reward Ratio is one of the most effective risk management tools in Forex trading. But be aware that Forex trading involves a substantial risk of losses.
