According to my experience, Before you place and trade you need to watch news first about currency first to avoid such high risk. 
Don't save what is left after spending; spend what is left after saving.

You are right the business principe are same that is the higher risk mean higher reward , but ideally in management we a business must have how to get optimum return but minimize the risk of loss ,  its expectations for all trader . although can not reach that but at least we can minimize the risk of loss

most pros don't go above 1% per trade.  Their are a multitude of reasons but it is a good rule of thumb not to blow up account.

The risk will vary from trader to trader, some remain restricted to 2% of their account equity. But overall you have to see that the amount you are risking per trade is enough that you can easily afford to lose.

2% is a common figure, I always found the larger question intriguing:
MONEY MANAGEMENT

Money Management as a topic is much more than just "how much % risk"?
Ryan Jones did a super cool book on it a while back....all kinds of variations out there
When you quote "2%" or any "X%" you are talking about a money management method called "fixed fractional" and it relates to position sizing, but there are many other methods, fixed ratio, optimalF, a whole bunch.

I think that up to 5% per trade is a risk easy to handle, although of course it all depends on the trading style of each trader.

I don't think if risk percentage above of 5% pertrade the risk can be handled easily . no matter scalping style or use swing trade style . its will be better when trade use lower than that percentage

It is not necessary as we think or plan market move according to it , Your risk is determined by lot size. Select small lots you can then choose SL and TP on high pips. Your risk will low  if you loose and profit alsol ow if you win. You can choose up to 2% risk on a trade.

A trader knows his limits,  you should not risk a great amount on your single trade. I have fixed amount in USD that I risk per trade and trade a certain number of order at a time.

Yes traders should know his limits and fix amount how much he will use in trading and how much he can loose or take something. I use $10 in one trade because I had  not much amount in my capital . If I loose this money it will not bad for me . I can make some $ of profits in favorable market.

I can handle 100% drawdown as will trade with money a can lose and everything will be ok.


But its always best not to go to such deeper levels of drawdowns because the stop outs that may occur. You have started with decent money from which you can certainly profit. Your leverage is also good enough. Risk less than 5% should be ideal for you.

The amount which you can easily lose per trade is the amount you should risk on every trade. Or if you are planning to open multiple trades then you should divide that amount in those trades.

As we are ready to trade first thing that we should keep in mind is risk too. We have to take such risk which is easy to bear if we had loss . I take less than 2% risk on each trading. When close one position the open another one so that I will not use much money from my account in trading.

The risk should be minimal let's say - 2%- 3% of your total account or if you have for example $1000 in your account - $20/30 is enough risk to take per trade. I recommend opening lower leverage 1:1 and trading on higher graphics so that your risk is even more minimized
