Controlling risk while trading takes many forms. It starts with properly selecting which markets to trade, then moves on to decisions about allocating capital and taking appropriate-sized positions. But managing risk and limiting losses also is accomplished through understanding risk itself as well as human nature. Any trader’s chance for success improves with a disciplined use and understanding of money management techniques.

You just have to understand that’s the way it is and be comfortable with it.
