Calculating your position size correctly is very important, especially if you are pursuing a money management strategy

The main idea behind these levels is the support and resistance values for a currency pair trend at which the most important breaks or bounces can appear. It is recommended to set your stop-loss, take-profit as well as stop and limit orders at these levels or around their values. This position-size calculator will organize your currency trading experience and will allow you to be in the market full-time.

The advantages of the MetaTrader version are:

  • Very fast calculation (once set up)
  • Easy-to-use drag-and-drop interface with a graphical panel
  • Position size calculated in the same software that is used for trading
  • Will work for you even when you are offline
