    Q: How do I reduce my risk?

    There are a number of ways of managing or reducing risk associated with trading.

    Reduce the trading leverage for any given instrument below the default level of 50:1 or 2% margin. (Note this can only be done prior to any positions being opened in that particular instrument). Reduced leverage reduces a trade exposure therefore potentially reducing the amount of capital at risk. Here are some of the most popularly used risk management strategies:

    • Reduce your position size
    • Partially Close an existing trade
    • Open a hedge trade
    • Open a partial hedge trade
    • Add a linked stop
    • Any combination of the above 1 – 5
