JBL Risk Manager

Every successful trader and investor knows the importance of a proven trading plan or system and understands that it requires both entry and exit rules and the discipline to follow them. Unfortunately many traders focus almost all of their attention on what to trade and when.

To survive it’s also important to have and follow a sound, easy to understand, Money Risk Management plan. JBL Risk Manager will automatically calculate how many shares to trade, where your initial stop loss exit price level should be, protecting your trading capital, as well as your trailing/profit stop exit price, to protect your profits.

JBL Risk Manager is Money Risk Management kept simple. An easy step-by-step method of keeping your emotions in check and removing the guesswork from your trading decisions, JBLRM monitors your performance with simple to follow reporting and tracks each trade easily as it integrates with your MetaStock data.

“After entering a trade, you are no longer a Trader but a Risk Manager.”

If you are interested in a simple way to manage your trading, JBL Risk Manager gives you Automatic Trade/Position Sizing, Initial Stop and Trailing Stop exit price calculations, Multiple Portfolios, Short & Long trades, integrates with your MetaStock database, Stock Split Adjustment, Performance:Win/Loss ratios, Trade Expectancy with permission from The Van Tharp Institute System Quality Number, R-Multiples, and R-Expectancy.

  • Maximum size of each trade will never be more than *20% of TRUE Trading Capital.
  • Time Stop exit is triggered if a trade has not hit breakeven within 10 days – money can be better invested elsewhere but long term investors may choose to ignore them.
