    This tool will be a nice addition to your risk management indicators, it is a cut-down version of the paid release of our flag-ship Risk & Reward Charting Tool but still packs a punch on helping traders with their setups. The core feature is the automatic calculation of the position size based on your stop-loss, so a stop loss is needed to do this.
