Reducing Risk Amount

There are times when you can reduce your risk amount.

In the case that you have a reading of below 8 on the $EVZ it is advised that you reduce your risk to a lower amount with no exact hard rule but 1% instead of 2% is a popular consensus.

In the case that your algorithm does not fair well on USD pairs you can avoid them all together or just trade them with a lower risk profile such as 1%.
