Please note, this is Swat Strategy suggestion, but each trader decision to risk more or less and each trader responsible to manage its own account.

INVESTMENT: $700-750 per Trade and $1.2-1.5k for SCALP

RISK MANAGEMENT: its each trader decision to enter, hold or exit a trade, but our suggestion is:

  • Normal trades: -50% stop loss from entry price (example: bought contracts at 1$ –> stop loss at 0.50$ or higher)
  • Scalp trades: -25% stop loss from entry price (example: bought contracts at 1$ –> stop loss at 0.75$ or higher)

Every trader its responsible for own trading, cut losses and profit taking.

On ETR, you will always know how much Swat invested and actual open trades (data available on Swat Portfolio)

Swat developed his own Risk Management strategy during the last 10+ years of trading. Some key Swat takes:

  • Never use “Market orders”: Swat always use “Limit Orders”
  • Avoid “Hard Stop Orders”: when Swat is in front of computer, he NEVER uses Hard Stop orders. He always uses “Mental Stops”, so he manage position and if see trade going against him, only than he will set a Limit Order and cut losses. Swat only uses Hard Stop Orders when not in front of pc.
  • Cut Losses and Move into next trade: every trader has losses but the secret is implement risk management strategies, cut losses, focus and move into next trade
  • On wide bid-ask spreads, Swat usually set limit order a little above middle price. Per example: Bid = 2 and Ask = 4, so Middle price = $3. Swat will set limit order to buy at $3.05 or $3.10
  • Ask yourself “How much am I willing to risk and lose?”

Lets say, you invest $1k per trade and your maximum risk is 300$ loss on that trade. You have some alternatives:

  1. Invest $1,000 per trade and stop trade for -30% loss or
  2. Invest $600 per trade and increase stop for -50% loss or
  3. Invest $300 per trade and let trade run

In All above situations, your maximum loss will be only 300$ per trade.

Ask yourself which strategy you prefer to use and stick with that strategy.
