- Open Dollar Risk – the total dollar amount you will lose if your stop loss is hit.
- Open % of Portfolio Risk – the risk as a percentage of your total account size.
- Starting Capital Risk – the dollar amount risked based on the difference between the entry price and stop price.
These metrics adjust in real-time, allowing you to monitor and manage risk more effectively.
Open portfolio heat refers to how much you would lose if all your currently held stock positions hit their stop-losses, whether those stop-losses are below what you paid for them - referred to as your “cost basis” - at your cost basis (breakeven) or above your cost basis (in the money). Admittedly, it’s a pretty bad day when all your stops are hit at once, but as traders we need to prepare for the worst. To visualize what “open heat” looks like on a single stock position, please note the chart below:
In the example above you can see that if you were to purchase 100 shares of this stock at a cost-basis of $18/share, and your stop-loss is placed at $15, if the current price of the stock is at $20 and the stock price drops to hit your stop-loss, it would result in a $500 total drawdown in your portfolio. Keep in mind this is just one stock position. Hypothetically, if you were even holding two stocks that had the above open heat, with a $10,000 account size, you could experience a 10% drawdown quite fast if the market corrects.
The “Portfolio Heat” indicator is fully customizable allowing traders to select the number of positions in the portfolio, colors and a detailed or a summary view of risk.
Note if entering a short position, you will enter the number of shares owned as a negative number.
