# I have made 298% profit with forex scalping in 15 hours

Today post i would like to write little bit about right size of your trading account and risk management. Because i found, that higher deposit with lower risk per trade is allmost all the time more risky than small deposit with higher risk.

I see, that it doesnt make a sense, but i will show you, what i mean.

At first i would like to present my results from one of my very small account, where i made more than 298% profit in less than 24 hours, its extreme example, how forex scalping technique can be profitable and i understand that deposit 7\$ is extremely low, but i made it just for fun and to show you, that it is possible.

So deposit was: 7.67\$, and the end equity was: 22.90\$, so its around 298% profit.

I found out, that everywhere forex gurus writes about right forex money management, but don’t realise, that 2 percent risk per trade is not the best way how to setup your money management. I will create very simple example:

Lets say you have trader A, who deposited 100k\$ and risk 2% per trade, in good trading series he will have 70% win ratio and 30% losses. If the trading series is 100 trades/scalps long, he will make:

1.02^70 * 0.98^30 = 218% profit

100 000 \$ -> 218 000\$

On another hand, if this trader will have bad trading series, his resuts will be like this: 70% losses and 30% profit trades.

0.98^70 * 1.02^30 = 56% loss

100 000 \$ -> 44 000\$

So at the end this trader A risk 56 000% for potential profit of 118 000\$. It seems to be not so bad, but i will show you litte trick and better risk money management.

Lets say we have trader B, who risk 10% per trade, has the same winning ratio in good trading series like trader A. But he will not deposit 100k\$, but only 10k\$.

1.10^70 * 0.90^30 = 3 347% profit

10 000\$ -> 334 700\$
