    The tool allows traders to clearly define and assess the potential risks associated with a trade. By plotting risk levels on the chart, traders can visually see their risk exposure relative to potential rewards, helping them make more informed decisions. Risk and reward charting tools provide traders with objective criteria for evaluating trade setups. Instead of relying solely on intuition or emotions, traders can use quantitative data to assess the risk-reward ratio of each trade opportunity, leading to more disciplined and consistent decision-making.

    Enhanced Trade Planning

    By visualizing risk and reward levels on a chart, traders can better plan their trades and set realistic profit targets and stop-loss levels. This helps traders manage their trades more effectively and avoid impulsive decisions based on market fluctuations.


    The Secret of a Risk/Reward Ratio (RR)

    The RR ratio is the difference between your potential profit and your potential loss of trade. You simply divide the pips number you expect to win by the pips number you expect to lose. If you place an order with a take profit of 100 pips and a stop loss of 50 pips then your risk/reward will be 2 which means that you will need to win only 1 trade to recover the loss of 2 trades. Never take a trade if your risk/reward ratio is below 1. 


    Improved Risk Management

    The most useful feature of this tool is that you can set the amount you want to risk per trade as either money or as a % of your account, once this is completed in the settings panel as shown below, the risk/reward tool will re-adjust your position size so that no matter where you position your stop loss your risk stays the same. With this invaluable tool, you can act in a fast-moving market knowing you are not risking more than you set out to do at the start.

    Charting Analysis

    This tool can be used for potential trade set-ups showing your risk and reward in pips, money and as a % of your account, it gives you all the information you need to enter a trade with confidence knowing that you will not risk more of your money than you want to.


    Quickly Change Order Type

    From the control panel on the chart, you can quickly change the order type for fast intraday trading, by simply clicking on the purple button to select Market, Stop & Limit orders.


    Configurable Settings

    The tool allows the trader to configure the settings that will suit their trading style and as you can see below there is a comprehensive list of configurable settings to suit everybody. This tool lets you plan your trades for Forex and Indices.


    cTrader Risk & Reward Settings Panel



    Submit Market, Stop & Limit Orders

    Traders can place both market and pending orders once they have used the tool to plan their trade setup, the Risk & Reward tool will then manage the predefined risk of the trade so only the pre-planned loss or profit will ever happen.


    Add Advanced Risk Management

    It is possible to attach profit targets, trailing stop loss, break-even & stealth stop-loss and more by using the cTrader Forex Risk Management Tool which will do this and more. This risk manager will only work with Forex and you will need to use the Attach to ATS feature so that it only manages trades from the Risk-Reward Tool.


    Visual Backtesting

    You can use this tool to practice your setups using the manual strategy testing tool (Visual Mode) and adjust the speed faster or slower using historical data. This is a useful method of testing both your manual and automated strategies and analysing the results.
