Money management is the key to better trading. The
methods applied by institutions, banks and mutual funds do not work effectively for
smaller trading and investment accounts. When we trade with a account size of $50,000, or
$100,000, or $500,000 we need to apply different money management strategies. Better
Trading presents and compares a number of these strategies. They are all linked to
Excel spreadsheets which are available as the Better Trading pak.
Part 1 PERFORMANCE PROFILING
This section considers how money management is able to improve trading results without
changes in trading skills. By understanding how to develop a personal trading profile and
apply equity curves the trader has a firm foundation on which to apply appropriate money
Part 2 -- PROTECT CAPITAL
Experienced traders start every trade by protecting capital. Understanding the nature of
trading risk is the first step in managing risk and uncertainty. This section examines the
reasons why traders fail to execute stop loss conditions and provides solutions to improve
stop loss effectiveness. Money management is used to protect capital. Strategies compared
include Zero Cost Averaging and Dollar Cost Averaging.
Part 3 - PROTECT PROFITS
Captured profits make a portfolio grow. Done effectively this minimises trading risk and
leverages successful trades into substantial winners. We compare competing strategies
designed to minimise risk and grow profits. We show how the most effective Grow_Up
strategy is used to match the changing nature of risk as the trend develops. The section
concludes with specific strategies for using the ASX rules to improve your chances of
buying and selling at your preferred price.
Part 4 PROTECT PORTFOLIOS
No trade is an island. They are part of a portfolio and portfolio performance is measured
differently from trade performance. We show how to set effective and truthful benchmarks
for performance. We examine the impact of diversity and show how real diversity is
achieved so that portfolio risk is reduced. Swiss Roll and Active Investing investment
strategies are examined. They capture profits while lowering risk. They also provide
portfolio trigger points for individual trade management.
