Forecast calls for periods of volatility and a chance of market risk

Learning how to manage risk in the markets is one of the most important steps for any trader or investor.

Managing your money

Trading is all about living to trade again. That means managing your money like a pro – being prepared, defining your risk profile and building a trading plan. And sticking to it.

  • Managing risk
    Having a winning strategy is only part of a trader's success — managing your money and controlling risk is even more essential when you trade.
  • Planning the trade
    As the saying goes, you need to plan the trade, and trade the plan. So sharpen your pencil and develop a trading plan that will guide you through your trading journey.
  • Trading the plan
    With your trading plan as your guide, you can focus on putting your trading strategy into action and learning from every move you make in the markets.

    Mind over money

    Experienced traders often say that trading is 10% mechanical and 90% mental. As part of your trading journey, you’ll need to recognise what makes you tick as a trader, so you can make the smarter decisions to manage risk.

    • Trading psychology
      Understanding what makes you human is the key to staying disciplined whenever you’re in the market.
    • Emotional intelligence
      No one is born a great trader – you get there by developing self-confidence and mastering your emotions.
    • What makes a successful trader?
      Successful traders have certain qualities in common that help them reach their goals in the market. Which of these traits do you have?
