So many traders get this wrong and blow up their accounts fast! Why?

Well, trading involves three main components, each of them equally important for being a profitable trader.

  • Good technical analysis

  • Proper risk management

  • Psychology and emotional control

Of these three key components, this course is focused on the second one - risk management - and how most traders get this wrong and end up blowing up their accounts. This is not a TA course, nor a trading psychology training, so don't expect any indicators, strategies or mentoring. Instead, what many traders (especially beginners) tend to ignore is how to properly manage their risk, position sizing and leverage when trading Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies and other assets, in general.

Here's the structure of this course. It is very important that you do not skip any section/video/lecture!

  • Introduction

  • The Simple Math Behind a Profitable Risk:Reward Ratio Strategy

  • Risk Determines the Correct Position Size and Leverage. Not Vice Versa!

  • Bonus Section

Overview to Risk Management (How about a career in Risk?)

Understand how the ISO31000 global standard can help you better manage risks in your personal and work life

Created by Daman Dev Sood - COO - Continuity & Resilience


Students: 658, Price: Free

Risk Management is a great career opportunity, and even more so given the COVID-19 pandemic. Effective Risk Managers can help the organization grow and achieve difficult organisational goals. I have trained around hundreds of risk professionals, and my observation is that most of them have excellent risk professionals, but the team size is too small, just 1-2, and that is because they cannot find the right people to hire. There is a huge need for more high-quality professionals who can help organisations to mange the risks that need to be taken, in order to grow.

My ‘Overview to Risk Management’ is an introductory course designed to help students decide if Risk is an area that you may to take up as a career. Running time of this course is 46 minutes, but including exercises, you may take over one hour to complete it (you can take breaks and complete it at your own pace). The course provides an introduction to Risk Management over 7 lectures which cover key topics (what is risk,  the need for Risk Management, the ISO 31000 methodology and roadmap, and next steps to start your Risk Management implementation).

My approach in this course is to have the participants answer various exercises with an intention to help them increase their own understanding. For example, I have provided resources which show you over 10 definitions of risk - and even this may not be a complete and comprehensive list! The above answers are provided just to give you a sample of some possibilities. The intention in the exercises is to ensure that those who are attending this this course are encouraged to come up with their own answers - as many as possible.

Once you have completed this exercise, kindly give me your feedback. I hope this course helps you get some new ideas and the commitment to come up with some action steps for you to implement. Best of luck!
