Lightbulb question for you aggressive active day traders

"they" say that the cautious investor will only risk 2% to 3% of their entire portfolio on a single trade in their active trading account. my question is, what percentage do you risk on a single trade in your active trading account?

if you could, in nOOb terms, explain why you choose that calculated risk amount over another, please do.

Well, "risk" is a very tricky word. You could put half your portfolio in short term money market and that would be less risky than 5% in a OTCBB stock. Risk is a combination of volatility, correlation to your other assets/correlation to the market, diversification (related to correlation) of your portfolio or lack thereof.... You have to determine your own risk appetite and not base if off others. Some people have no problem plowing their assets into a couple of companies, while some fear moving out of government guaranteed securities (ahem, social security vs. private accounts). Even if you can pinpoint your risk appetite, determining the "riskiness" of the assets your considering is a difficult (and just as much art as science) proposition.
