assuming 250k usd 50:1 leverage 200 pip stop loss
what is the largest position if it goes against you..
right i have worked it out proper now...
maybe not the usual way but the only way i know
at 50:1 leverage you need to put down 2000 dollars per lot.
if we assume that we lose 10 dollars per pip per lot.
then i get (let x = number of lots)
(Xnumber of lots * 2k holding costs of each lot) +(200 pips *10dollars a pip * Xnumber of lots) = 250k
(2000 X) +(2000 X) = 250k
X (2000 + 2000) =250k
X = 250000 /4000
X = 62.5
maybe that is the right answer...but i had to think about it and put pen to paper.
you could get 62.5 lots maximum
