Position sizing refers to the size of a trade in terms of the amount of capital being invested. It is an important aspect of trading because it helps to manage risk. A position sizing calculator helps us to decide how much stocks to buy in each trade. Using this calculator, a trader can ensure that a single trade does not disproportionately affect their overall account balance.

There are various types of position sizing used by traders worldwide. I had made a comprehensive calculator that will help my fellow traders to benefit from it.

If you are not familiar with the calculators, read my article on Various Position Sizing here.
