Welcome to futures.io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

You'll need to register in order to view the content of the threads and start contributing to our community. It's free and simple, and we will never resell your private information.

JBL Risk Manager and Money Management System

This is an interesting software package.

Even if you do not wish to use the software itself, which is $299 but has a 14 day trial you can still learn a great deal or come up with some new ideas on how to better your own trading.

Really it all comes down to money management and risk management. These two things are what separate the men from the boys. Boys play with their...indicators, men know how to use them and realize it's not the indicator that counts but the technique, style, staying power, etc.

I wanted to post this not because I recommend the software but because I recommend the principals.

Paritech - JBL Risk Manager

From their website:

Every successful Trader and Investor knows the importance of a proven trading plan or system and understand it requires both entry and exit rules and the discipline to follow them. Most unfortunately focus almost all of their attention in only finding what to trade and when. To survive it's more important to have and follow a sound, easy to understand, Money Risk Management plan. This user-friendly software will automatically calculate your trade size or how many shares to trade, where your initial Stop loss exit price level will be, protecting your Trading Capital & your Trailing / Profit Stop exit price, to protect your Profits.

This Money Management software will give you a simple step-by-step method of keeping your emotions in check, remove the guess work from your trading, help monitor your performance accurately, with simple to understand reporting and track each trade easily as it integrates with your MetaStock data. It will help make sure you benefit by using sophisticated Money Risk Management strategies that work!

After entering a trade, you are no longer a Trader but a Risk Manager.
If you are a beginner and do not know why money, risk and trade management are vital components of your trading we recommend you read Trade Your Way to Financial Freedom and Trading For A Living. Without adopting these disciplines, you are highly likely to become an emotional trader and take unnecessary risks with your capital. This software will help put you on the path to disciplined trading.

If you are already an active trader, you are most likely interested in a simple way to manage your trading. JBL Risk Manager gives you Automatic Trade/Position Sizing, Initial Stop and Trailing Stop exit price calculations, Multiple Portfolios, Short & Long trades, integrates with your MetaStock database, Stock Split Adjustment, Performance: Win/Loss ratios, Trade Expectancy and with permission from The Van Tharp Institute System Quality Number, R-Multiples and R-Expectancy.

Components of our Risk/Money Management System:
  • Our Profit or Trailing Stop will never be below your Initial Stop Loss. Always steady or moving up when in Profit but never down and will adjust automatically.
  • Your maximum Risk per trade (loss) will never be more than 2%* of true Trading Capital (less brokerage). Automatically calculated and displayed before every trade entry.
  • JBLRM will automatically trigger an EXIT! when your Stop, is hit.
  • Maximum size of each trade will never be more than 20%* of TRUE Trading Capital.
  • Time Stop exit is triggered if trade has not hit breakeven within 10 days, money can be better invested elsewhere but long term investors may choose to ignore

Here is a short list of key features, again from the website.

- Automatic Trade Sizing how many shares to BUY or Short Sell for each trade
- Stop Placement calculated Stop Loss and Trailing / Profit Stop exit price
- Integrates with your MetaStock database for automatic daily updates

Do you use this software in your trading?

Could you share your experience?

I was thinking of buying this myself and wanted to have some unbiased experience.
