The Custom Options Explained...

MAGIC NUMBER – There is no need to change this.

BALANCE TO USE – Current Balance or Equity Balance. Use Current Balance to use your current balance excluding open positions or Equity Balance to include open positions.

EQUITY RISK PROFILE – Percentage or Fixed Amount. If you select Percentage then fill in EQUITY RISK PERCENTAGE, if you select Fixed Amount then fill in EQUITY RISK FIXED AMOUNT.

DEFAULT STOP OPTION – PIP Stop or Price Stop. If you select PIP Stop then fill in DEFAULT PIP STOP, if you select Price Stop you will enter your Stop when placing your trade.

DEFAULT TAKE PROFIT OPTION – PIP Target, Price Target or Target Percent. If you select PIP Target then fill in DEFAULT PIP TAKE PROFIT, if you select Price Target you will enter your Target when placing your trade, if you select Target Percent then fill in DEFAULT PERCENTAGE TAKE PROFIT.

Some Scenarios...

To help you decide on how to set your custom options.

Once of these scenarios may not be exactly appropriate to you.  However, you should be able to work out your custom settings from them.

Scenario 1

If you decide to risk 1% of your Equity Balance on every trade and enter your Stop and Target manually.

BALANCE TO USE – Equity Balance.

EQUITY RISK PROFILE – Percentage and set EQUITY RISK PERCENTAGE to 1.0.

DEFAULT STOP OPTION – Price Stop.

DEFAULT TAKE PROFIT OPTION – Price Target.

When placing a trade you only have to enter your Price Stop and your Price Target and click BUY or SELL.

Scenario 2

If you decide to risk £100 on every trade with a fixed 20 PIP Stop and fixed 40 PIP Target.

BALANCE TO USE – Doesn’t matter.

EQUITY RISK PROFILE – Fixed Amount and set EQUITY RISK FIXED AMOUNT to 100.0.

DEFAULT STOP OPTION – PIP Stop and set DEFAULT PIP STOP to 20.0.

DEFAULT TAKE PROFIT OPTION – PIP Target and set DEFAULT PIP TAKE PROFIT to 40.0 – Alternatively you can select Target Percent and set DEFAULT PERCENTAGE TAKE PROFIT to 200.0.

When placing a trade you only have to click BUY or SELL.

Scenario 3

If you decide to risk 1% of your Current Balance on every trade and enter your Stop manually with an open Target.

BALANCE TO USE – Current Balance.

EQUITY RISK PROFILE – Percentage and set EQUITY RISK PERCENTAGE to 1.0.

DEFAULT STOP OPTION – Price Stop.

DEFAULT TAKE PROFIT OPTION – For an open target it’s probably just best to use Target Percent and set DEFAULT PERCENTAGE TAKE PROFIT to something like 500%.

When placing a trade you only have to enter your Price Stop and click BUY or SELL.

IMPORTANT!

Once you have executed a trade using your MT4 Risk Manager
It is managed exactly the same way as any other open MT4 trade
Via the Terminal / Trade window


The MT4 Risk Manager In Detail

With the Forex Useful MT4 Risk Manager as you know, the main objective is to manage your risk every time - For every trade.

Now, your Lot size (or £ per point for Spread Betters) will be calculated for you automatically.  No more manual working out, no more mistakes!

Your Lot size will now be calculated automatically based on your Risk profile (the custom options you have specified above).  So, every time you place a trade now your Actual Trade Value (monetary risk) will be consistent with your Risk profile - Automatically.
