Money management determines how much to risk on each being trade. This is a vital building block of any trading coordination - risk too much and the odds of going bust are too high, risk too barely and the reward for trading is too low.

The main methods for calculating trade size are:

Fixed Fractional

The add up to of contracts to trade is indomitable by a fixed percentage of existing equity. As only whole futures contracts can be trade this, effectively, means that the buyer uses 1 agreement per \$x of equity. For illustration 1 bond per \$10,000.

Fixed fractional, however, requires disproportionate achievement at another bond levels. For 1 bond every \$10,000 to move from 1 agreement to 2 requires a profit of \$10,000 from 1 contract. To move from 10 contracts to 11 still requires \$10,000 profit but from 10 contracts. So for less important bank account sizes it will take a long time for the money management to in fact kick in and for bigger balance sizes the digit of contracts traded will jump wildly around.

Using fixed part the amount of contracts traded would be calculated as equity/x, where x=dollars per agree to (\$10,000 in the above example).

Contracts - Fair play Mandatory \$

1 - 10,000

2 - 20,000

3 - 30,000

4 - 40,000

5 - 50,000

6 - 60,000

Fixed Ratio

Fixed ratio adds delta to the calculation. The delta is a aspect which is essential to move to the next agree to level. The lower the delta the more aggressive the money management is.

The formula is:

equity necessary to trade before agree to size + (number of contracts x delta) = Next level.

Eg opening with a base of \$10,000 for 1 agree to and a delta of \$5,000:

Contracts - Fair play Essential \$

1 - 10,000

2 - 15,000

3 - 25,000

4 - 40,000

5 - 60,000

6 - 85,000

Comparing the above table to that for fixed part it can be seen that at the lower balance levels less fairness is compulsory but as the bank account grows the digit of contracts traded becomes less aggressive.
