In the world of finance, lot size refers to a measure of a quantity or increment of a particular asset or product which is deemed suitable for buying and selling. Different types of products are commonly available in different lot sizes.

Is trading gambling? Do you trade high-risk leveraged products like Binary Options?

It is a commonly known fact that between 70-90% of retail traders lose money.
This is almost always due to greed, poor money management, and trading instruments such as Binary Options that are statistically impossible to win in the long term.
Professional traders managing billions of dollars strive for 5-20% annual gains as their primary goal is asset protection. Retail traders strive for much higher returns and therefore often take on high risk trading opportunities. All strategies on-boarded by LiveTrades.com are heavily vetted to ensure they have a low-medium risk profile. It should be noted however that all leveraged investments do carry risk.

What is the difference between Buy/Sell/Long/Short/Up/Down trading?

Buy/Long/Up market trades = Trader is predicting that the asset being traded will go UP in market price.
Sell/Short/Down market trades = Trader is predicting that the asset being traded will go DOWN in the market price.

Traders can also engage in what is called a “hedge” where they open both positions on the same instrument. This can be seen as counterintuitive, but can be a clever way to enhance the profit potential of a trade or reduce the overall risk.

Can trading accounts get "too big" to trade?

It’s a common misconception that retail trading accounts can get “too big”.
The reality of the matter is the global Crypto market cap alone is over $1.6 Trillion. If you add together markets such as FX, Gold, Oil, and Indices, the global markets are worth several trillion dollars. Therefore making only large institutional investors remotely capable of “moving the market” with individual trades.

What is Drawdown and Money Management?

Essentially, money management tells you how many shares or contracts to trade at a given point. Money management is a defensive concept. It keeps you in the game to play another day. For example, money management tells you whether you have enough new money to trade additional positions. It is of paramount importance that traders do not over-leverage their accounts or they can lose substantial account principal. This is a very common reason that the majority of traders lose money in the global financial markets.

Can I close my account easily?
