Mastering Risk Management: 5 Lessons from Bill Lipschutz

You can analyze market opportunities endlessly,

But if you don’t manage your risks, you won’t sustain your profits.

Risk Assessment

– Evaluate the risk of every trade before execution.

– Use historical and current market data for informed decisions.

– Always consider the worst-case scenario.

Capital Allocation

– Allocate capital based on risk level, not just potential return.

– Use a tiered investment approach to manage exposures.

– Never risk more than a predetermined percentage of your portfolio on a single trade.

Loss Management

– Set strict stop-loss orders to limit potential losses.

– Adjust stop-losses in response to market movements or new information.

– View stop-losses as a tool for risk management, not just loss prevention.

Profit Protection

– Secure profits through the use of trailing stops and profit targets.

– Regularly take profits to reduce exposure and lock in gains.

– Reassess profit-taking strategies as market dynamics evolve.


– Spread risk across different currencies and trade setups.

– Avoid over-concentration in any single currency pair or market.

– Regularly review and adjust your diversification strategy.
