Money Management Position Size Metatrader 4 Forex Indicator

The Money Management Position Size MT4 forex indicator is based on the Average True Range (ATR) technical indicator.

The Position Size indicator provides you with the recommended stop loss, lot size and take profit level based on your equity.

You will need to input the risk you are prepared to take per trade.

Open the indicator’s inputs menu and change the “Input Risk %” to whatever value you want.

However, never risk more than 2% of your equity per open trade.

The default value is set to 0.01. This translates to 1% risk of your equity.

Based on your equity and risk per trade, the indicator calculates the trade volume, optimal stop loss and take profit level.
