Trading time tasks:

What you did before trading, it doesn’t matter. If you do any wrong in trading time, you have to pay for this. So trading time tasks are mainly important.

  • Risk assumption: You have to assume risk and explain it in mathematical way. Let’s see some rules –

  • Ratio analysis application: Imagine you invest $500 @ 1.5963 assuming highest price 1.5983 and lowest price 1.5943. Here probability is +/-20 pips. So ratio is 1:1.

Price Highest price   Lowest Price   Ratio
1.5963 1.5983 1.5943 1:1
1.5963 1.5993 1.5948 2:1
1.5963 1.5978 1.5933 1:2


In the second raw we can see profit could be twice than loss probability. So here profit ratio is positive. In the 3rd raw it is opposite to second raw. If you analyze ratio and follow the 3rd raw, your investment will reduce risk.

  • Stop trading: It is situational task. Imagine your trade is @ 1.5963 and you want to stop order if the price goes under 1.5943 or your trading limit is 20 pips. It will automatically stop your order if the price crosses your limit.

  • Much thinking: If you think much and take trade decision on the basis of chart and condition your risk will reduce.
