A webcast presentation by Cynthia Kase, CMT, MFTA originally held on June 10, 2015 as part of the CMT Association’s Educational Web Series.

Most market participants understand that they are taking on risk when entering a position. However the risk appropriate for a given trade, where to set stops, how to evaluate value-at-risk (VAR), or even what the odds are of losing “everything” often is not understood. In this webinar, award winning market technician Cynthia Kase will cover the core of what you need to know about determining risk per unit, setting stops, risk of ruin, value-at-risk, and more.
