1) How big of a position do I want to trade? How much capital am I going to risk? Am I limiting my risk to 1% or 2% of my trading capital?
2) What is my risk of ruin based on my capital at risk?
3) Why am I entering the trade here? What is the trigger to trade?
4) How will I exit with a profit? A price target or trailing stop?
5) At what price will I know that I was wrong? Where is my stop loss based on the position size?
6) Will I be able to admit I was wrong and exit the trade if my stop is hit, or will my ego make me hold and hope?
7) Is the risk small enough that I can emotionally handle the loss without blaming the market?
8) Can I really risk this money or do I need it for upcoming bills? Trade with risk capital not living expenses.
9) Am I committed to staying disciplined and following my trading plan on the trade?
