Position Sizing Trading Simulation Game Free Download

Game Overview:

The Market Wizards agree that there are three keys to trading success:

1. Follow the golden rule of trading—cut your losses short and let your profits run

2. Master the part of your trading that tells you how much

3. Develop the discipline to follow both of those elements

The Position Sizing Game will help you with all three!

  • First, you will now know how to answer the question “How much?” through position sizing™ strategies.
  • Second, playing the game helps you learn how to let your profits run—and protect them as well.
  • Third, playing the game using your own system’s results in simulation mode allows you to practice proper position sizing™ methods for your own trading. Trading simulation helps you develop the discipline to follow the other two keys for trading success.
