Risk of loss

Quickly see what the impact is of taking too much risk. It shows how quickly balance drains after x amount of consecutive losses.

This feature can be found on the Risk/Reward page in the menu.



Compare target risk% of the portfolio to the actual risk% of the trade history, as a reminder of how important it is to manage your risk. Risk% is defined as the percentage of the portfolio balance that will be lost after a losing trade.

An example: when a trade is taken with 2% risk, the portfolio will lose 2% of it's value from that moment.



Play with the settings to see what effect it has on the drawdown.
