I get a lot of emails from traders asking me how much they should risk per trade, or what percentage of their trading account they should risk per trade.
I find that many beginning traders fund their trading accounts with money they really shouldn’t be risking in the markets, and if they don’t initially make this mistake, they make later down the road after blowing out their first account. Indeed, it is so powerful that you can even enter the market essentially randomly and not lose money over the long run, and perhaps even turn a small profit, through the proper execution of risk reward. Unfortunately many traders take the wrong approach to risk reward by worrying first about the potential reward and last about the potential risk. You need to first calculate the risk involved on any potential trade setup AFTER you determine the most logical place to put your stop loss. Every business before getting into the nitty gritty of hedging, must put in place a frame work for foreign exchange risk management, so that all in the organization understand their role vis-à-vis forex risk management and discharge their responsibilities effectively. The leadership should explicitly articulate its hedging objectives with the staff down the line and make them own up the proposed action. Once the board approves the risk management policy, its implementation becomes the responsibility of senior executives.
Ensuring overall compliance with the board’s strategy and policies. It is the employees who ultimately implement the board’s strategy and risk management polices and administer deals that are necessary to manage the foreign risk. In that context, it becomes critical to identify the right kind of employees to manage risk. Here, it is essential to understand the difference between forex exposure and forex risk. Foreign exchange exposure is the sensitivity to changes in the real domestic currency value of assets, liabilities, or operating incomes to unanticipated changes in exchange rates.
Companies having subsidiaries in different countries or the parent company having subsidiaries across the globe can effectively practice internal techniques to minimize foreign exchange exposure and the eventual need for its active hedging. It is possible to net the payments and receipts among the associated companies which trade with one another. It involves mere settlement of inter-affiliate indebtedness for the net amount owing. One of the simplest ways of netting is bilateral netting: it involves pairs of companies. However, it poses a problem: which currency is to be used for settlement? Multilateral netting is a little complex phenomenon though similar to bilateral netting. It involves more than two associated companies and their debt.
Hence it calls for the services of a group’s centralized treasury. Netting or matching are frequently used interchangeably. But there is a subtle difference: netting refers to potential flows within the group companies, while matching extends from group companies to third party companies too. However, to practice this technique, there must be a two-way cash flow in the same foreign currency within the group companies. For all practical purposes matching is akin to multilateral netting and hence calls for centralized group finance function.
