# Risk of ruining your account

Today I am going to speak about how many trades one would need to blow his account entirely based on % of equity risked

Let assume we have a capital of 15.000EUR ( without leverage)

If we would risk 1% for our account , and the minimum amount to spend is 100EUR per trade(0.01 lots).

We would need 142 trades in row to blow our account.

I have created an excel to calculate if you want to do it.
