Outside of sheer luck, no one will make a tremendous amount of money.without a proper money management strategy. This is the basis of this book." -from the Preface Not a week goes by that investment experts don't offer us more "winning" trading methods and systems. Some work better than others, but they all seem to stop working sooner or later. To obtain-and maintain-an edge on a regular basis, savvy traders need an effective money/risk management plan.

By using the management techniques described, you can reap greater profits whether the method wins 25 percent of the time, 40 percent of the time, or 90 percent of the time. Unlike other books on risk management that tend to be loaded down with complicated formulas and technical jargon, The Trading Game presents the topic in a way that is clear, concise, and practical. Covering the why's, what's, when's, and how's, it walks you through the entire risk management process with complete details on everything from margin requirements and fixed fractional trading to market weighting and protecting profits. Along with a complete, workable method for making $1 million in five years or less, you'll find straightforward guidelines on determining how many trades to place, analyzing what their maximum drawdowns should be, and combining different markets and different systems for diversification. You'll also learn to assess whether you're a conservative or aggressive trader, what your goals are, and the degree to which you're able to tolerate risk.

Clear, concise, and practical, The Trading Game shows you how to harness the power of money management for any trading method "The goal of most futures traders is to make a million dollars as fast and as painlessly as possible. Unfortunately, few traders achieve this goal. In The Trading Game, Ryan Jones demonstrates how the proper application of his new money management strategy, Fixed Ratio Trading, can enable an average trading system to earn spectacular profits.
