Profits Will Follow When You Protect Your CapitalApr 04, 2023
Dear Aspiring Trader,
The legendary trader Paul Tudor Jones once said,
"I'm always thinking about losing money as opposed to making money.
Don't focus on making money, focus on protecting what you have."
As a fellow trader, I couldn't agree more with this statement.
Let me share a personal anecdote that highlights the importance of protecting your capital in trading.
A few years back, I was on a winning streak, and I became obsessed with making more money.
I started taking larger risks, and before I knew it, I had wiped out a significant portion of my gains.
It was a wake-up call that shifted my focus from making money to protecting my capital.
Here are some practical ways you can learn to focus on protecting what you have rather than constantly chasing profits:
1. Risk management:
Implement strict risk management rules to limit your losses on each trade.
Set a maximum percentage of your capital that you're willing to risk on any single trade, and stick to it.
2. Position sizing:
Adjust your position size according to the risk associated with the trade.
Smaller position sizes for higher-risk trades can help protect your capital in the long run.
By focusing on protecting your capital, you'll be better equipped to weather the inevitable ups and downs of the market.
This mindset will not only help you preserve your trading account but also set the foundation for consistent and sustainable growth in the long term.
Remember, it's not just about making money in trading, but also about preserving and growing your capital wisely.
By adopting a disciplined approach and prioritizing capital protection, you'll be on your way to a successful and lasting trading career.
Stay focused and keep protecting what you have.
Wishing you success in your trading journey!
Best Regards, Oliver
