    Assuming you have 50k in your account and you wish to risk 2%. You want to trade USDCHF with a 50-pip stop loss. If USDCHF is currently priced at 0.9000 how many units should you trade? 
    • 180K units
    • 90K units
    • 18K units
     
    To adhere to a 2% risk limit with a 50-pip stop loss, and assuming a USDCHF exchange rate of 0.9000, you should trade approximately 1.8 standard lots (or 180K units). If you have a 50,000 USD account and you want to risk 2% of it, that amounts to 1,000 USD. With a 50-pip stop loss and assuming a USDCHF exchange rate of 0.9000, you can calculate the position size. By dividing the risk amount by the product of the stop loss in pips and the pip value (obtained by converting the CHF pip value to USD), the position size is approximately 1.8 standard lots of USDCHF.
