Wish I was this educated when I first started trading, would have saved me many thousands of dollars through the GFC and beyond too B. It is invaluable for position sizing and money management. I have read many books on share trading, most of which contained some detail on how to manage risk.
I am confident that by using JBL RM that I am undertaking the necessary management of risks associated with capital appropriation, open positions and sector constraints, with the added bonus of stop loss alerts. These are excellent tools for m aking sure your trading system continues to perform well. It is user-friendly and very helpful. I am impressed with your programme. Lee and I just had to write and say that we have been using JBL Risk Manager for several months now and we are delighted with its ease of use and the powerful simplicity it delivers into our hands when we consider keeping or selling shares.
We have now grown well away from our beginnings of wondering how much to invest, buying shares and wondering when to take a profit or hanging onto them as they lost value and hoping they would "come good" again. Your Risk Manager program has protected profits for us and has signalled the time to quit an unprofitable situation. Our involvement in the share market is now business like and successful.
Over the years I haven't made any recommendations in that regard. Joseph, the designer of JBL Risk Manager, has been very helpful and it's all coming together now and yes the need for such a program is critical.
