What's your approach to position sizing in trading? Do you have a set percentage per trade, or do you adjust based on market conditions and volatility?
I typically adjust position sizing based on market conditions and volatility, aligning with a risk management strategy that suits my trading style and risk tolerance.
I typically start with a set percentage per trade and adjust based on market conditions, volatility, and confidence in the setup.
I tend to mix it up! I start with a base percentage but adjust for volatility and confidence in the trade.
I am trying to incorporate the convex position sizing, where there is a fixed max and minimum risk that is pre-decided, and then we scale it up or down depending on the recent performance.
