Making Your Trading Capital Work for You using Trader Money Management!

As most traders will tell you, there's no such thing as a set amount of capital when you start trading although it should be mentioned, the more you have to start off with, the easier it's going to be. But generally it all depends on trader money management.

You'll tend to find that it's the brokerage you need to be aware of as the vast majority of brokers charge a set fee. Obviously, the more capital you start with, the more affordable the fee will be for you.

The advantage of a large fund becomes apparent when we for example take two traders, each using the same broker and each facing the same fees. While one trader has $1000 to trade with, the other has $10,000. If they are both being charged a fee of $100 per trade, the trader with $1000 would need to make at least 10% in order to break even. The trader with $10K on the other hand, would only need to make 1% in order to break even.

Essentially, all I'm saying is that those who start out with a small fund are at a slight disadvantage.

Likewise, the size of your float is going to have a direct impact on which system of trading you use.

In my opinion, short term trading systems such as day-trading are far better suited to those with a slightly larger float. Those with a smaller float should rather consider a long term trading system because not only does such a system allow for you to continue with your regular job, but such a system also involves considerably less broker fees. As time goes on and you gain some experience, then by all means start experimenting with short term systems.

I know that many people start saving money before they actually start trading and of course there's nothing wrong with planning ahead. On the other hand, there are those who max out their credit cards in order to start trading and for the most part, I certainly don't advise this course of action. Sure, if you've got the necessary trading experience then yes, you can loan money from the bank, just as many others do in order to start a regular business. Remember though, the more money you invest, the bigger the results will be. Win and you win big, but if you loose, you'll also loose big. The best advice I can give, would be that you start out slowly rather than risking your life savings only to loose everything in trade loss.

Of course it goes without saying that your focus should be on your trading, without the added burden of debt from credit cards. Max out your credit cards for the sake of trading and you can be rest assured that you biggest concern will be the card repayments, rather that good trading. In Don Miller's "Trading Markets World Meet the Traders", he sums it up nicely by advising new traders to focus on good trading rather than making money. Furthermore, it's generally accepted that unless you have enough money to live off for at least two years, you shouldn't consider trading as a full-time business.

Take a bit of advice from the professionals and start trading part-time only. This way you'll be gaining some experience and at the same time you'll start to see some returns coming in.

Short and long-term trading systems:

Short-term systems involve trades of 1-30 days and they involve taking part in more trades. While the number of wins will be higher, short-term systems demand a lot of time as well as a high level of skill and expertise.

Long-term systems involves trades of a month or longer, hence the need for fewer trades. While this means less wins, it also means you require less capital and it's all round a better system for those who lack trading experience.

Essentially, the amount of money you have available will determine how much trading capital you start with. Of course, the tools you choose to use and the amount of risk you're willing to take will also have an impact on how much capital you choose to start with. As I've mentioned earlier, there's no "ideal amount" to but instead, decide how much you're starting out with and then keep it aside as an individual business.

As a personal bit of advice, I would suggest you have at least $10,000 to start off with, and remember, your trading venture is just like any regular business so please treat it that way.
