Hello

I'm not a Ninja user, so can't code that

My calculation for forex is

RoundLow to the 1000 ($Risk$ / Entry- Stoploss) + 2 pip slippage)

My actual risk is 50$.. My stop loss is always the price opposite of the entry bar. Meaning, I risk the value of the range of my entry bar.


This will give you the | unit you could take for a given $risk

This unit is multiply by the entry price and compared to my maximum risk allowed. If to much, then the #units is reduce. I don't want to risk or bust my allowed margin

All is done via Excel. But easily done in any language


Martin
