As soon as you have come in terms with the fact that losses are inevitable in forex trade, the next thing to come in terms with is how much you can comfortably part with when it comes to losses without being affected psychologically.

You can determine this by engaging in a conversation with yourself, try to visualize yourself being in that loss and mentally ask yourself if you can be able to cope if it happens to you. Meditate and try to find an answer by yourself.

Another factor you need to know is the fact that if the draw-down (loss) in your account gets bigger, the amount of money that is expected to make you win back the money you started with enlarges.
