KickStart Risk Calculator™

Our KickStart Risk Calculator tool is designed to help take the guesswork out of your approach to risk and equity management

There are two calculators here, the first is the long one located on the bottom – this is our position size calculator. We’re going to use this to work out what our position size should be from scratch, based on our inputs (Account Balance, Currency being traded, Distance from S/L in pips, & desired risk amount in %). 

Follow the instructions below on how to get your own copy of our Risk Calculator, and watch the video to learn how to obtain your own copy.

KickStart Trade Planner™

Our KickStart Risk Calculator tool is designed to help take the guesswork out of your approach to risk and equity management

Trade planning is one of the most critical components of successful trading. 

A trade plan is a blueprint – a roadmap which aims to identify the how, the when, and the why for each of our trades.

This is a living, breathing document, which will grow with you as you develop as a trader. Your strategies will evolve and get better over time – so too should this document. However, you should NOT make major changes to your plan randomly or more than necessary. 

Once set, your plan should act as your guide – helping to minimise discretion from trading, allowing you to adhere more rigorously to your strategy’s rules. This document is a step-by-step guide for setting up your trade plan.

KickStart's Top Down Analysis Checklist™

Stay organized and streamline your analysis across multiple time frames with our top-down analysis checklist

Conducting analysis again and again can lead to something called “Analysis Paralysis,” especially if you are not organised! The reason is simple – when we are conducting a top-down analysis, we are absorbing, processing, and utilising a lot of information. It is imperative to stay organised not just in your approach to the strategy or to the risk management – but also to your actual analysis, as well. 

By using this blueprint, if you are following it to the letter every time, you are ensuring that your analysis is complete and wholesome and you haven’t left any stone unturned. 

In KickStart PRO, we show you how to keep your charts organised, your trade plan, your risk management, your trade execution and now, your actual analysis, as well.

  • Step 1: Start on the Daily

    Start on the daily time frame by compressing the chart to get the all-time view.

  • Step 2: Identify the Highest & Lowest Price

    Identify the highest and lowest price of the pair's history and mark any major consolidation ranges or major levels of support/resistance

  • Step 3: Draw Trendlines

    Spread all relevant trendlines, distinguishing between active and broken trend lines

  • Step 4: Spread all applicable fibonaccis

    Spread ALL applicable fibonaccis and sub-fibonaccis to find the current A-B Boundary (the sub-fibs will help us to identify whether we are on the B-C leg or C-D leg)

  • Step 5: Mark all Retracements

    Mark the current maximum level of retracements, distinguishing between the Capital A-B boundary and the sub a-b boundary

  • Step 6: Mark Corresponding "D's"

    Mark the corresponding anticipated D-extensions, distinguishing between the Capital A-B boundary and the sub a-b boundary

  • Step 7: Support & Resistance

    Mark off Support 1 - Support 5 and Resistance 1 - Resistance 5

  • Step 8: Sync to All Charts

    Sync these key levels to all charts

  • Step 9: Advanced Patterns

    Identify if any advanced patterns are present and take the appropriate steps for that pattern (See UFTC for lesson on advanced patterns)

  • Step 10: Turn to the 2H

    Turn to the 2H and identify the highest/lowest points of the most recent, relevant trend (Use the most recent C retracement - sub or capital - as the starting point)

  • Step 11: Repeat Steps 1-9

    Repeat steps 1-9 on the 2H time frame

  • Step 12: Use the 15-minute as an early warning system

    Turn to the 15-minute time frame and repeat steps 1-8 and 9. Use this to identify early warning signs of reversals, B/C C/D move switches, and early potential entry opportunities.
