We need to keep the losses small and adjust the position size according to what
risk we are prepared to take for the planned Entry.
Based on the Account Size and the max percentage we want to risk for any trade,
we calculate, for a number of fixed max Loss percentages:
- The Position size, both in percent and in the selected currency.
- Number of shares to buy.
- Where to put the Stop Loss.
We also calculate the numbers based on the ATR times a multiple.
The values are presented in a table format and will hopefully aid in selecting
a suitable Stop Loss (based on the chart situation) and hence the proper Position Size.
We also allow for expressing the Account size in currencies other than USD.
Account Size in USD and trading US stocks: select USD
Account Size in SEK but trading US stocks: select USDSEK
Polished the look of the table and added a column with a calculated
1RTP (1 Risk amount Take Profit) value.
