Position Sizing Calculator
IMPORTANT NOTES: The above calculator is designed to help you size fund positions (long only) given a total account value (cash plus equity), a position entry price, a position stop loss price, and a desired level of account value risk (% Risk). You are STRONGLY advised to never risk losing more than 2.0% of your total account value on any one position. Furthermore, you should always update total account value to reflect your own account balance before sizing a position. Changes to this field are stored on your computer (using a browser cookie) and restored on each subsequent viewing. If no value is found (or if browser cookies are disabled), the field will default to its previous value, or to $100,000 if no previous value is found. Lastly, and VERY CRITICALLY, Actual Dollar Risk does NOT account for price gaps or other potential slippages. Larger-than-expected losses may occur!!!
