Experienced traders understand that portfolio risk management is important when it comes to trading stocks and options. A person should always conduct a risk analysis before making any trade. However, this step is often overlooked by new and inexperienced traders.

It’s especially important for beginning investors to give attention to risk analysis. Risk analysis is crucial to ensure a trader doesn’t risk more than they can afford to.

Many inexperienced (and some experienced) traders use gut-feeling to base their trading decisions on. A risk management system can evaluate these ‘gut-feeling’ trades to calculate their actual potential for gain and loss. Many times traders trading on ‘gut-feeling’ will be surprised at how mathematically incorrect their feelings are.

Get More InformationThe risk ratio formula is a ratio used to calculate the amount of risk taken for the potential investment return within the arena of stocks, options trading, futures trading, forex trading, as well as various other trading markets.

The reward to risk ratio works based upon this premise: the higher the ratio, the lower the risk is compared to the potential return on investment. Conversely, the lower the ratio, the higher the risk is compared to the potential return on investment.

Although ‘reward to risk ratio’ and ‘risk to reward ratio’ sound similar, they’re not interchangeable. In fact, they are exact opposites. A 2:1 reward risk ratio would equate to a 1:2 risk reward ratio.

A reward risk ratio is calculated by dividing the potential profit by the potential loss whereas a risk reward ratio is calculated by dividing the potential loss by the potential profit.

A reward risk ratio produces a positive number when the potential profit exceeds the potential loss whereas a risk reward ratio produces a positive number when the potential loss exceeds the potential profit.

Options trading tends to use the reward risk ratio calculation and verbiage to define this risk management system. The realm of options trading prefers to use

The reward to risk ratio is especially helpful when trading in options. As opposed to stock or futures trading, the potential for profit and loss is more convoluted in options trading. The reward to risk ratio is extremely helpful in providing clarity for the potential risk and profit that an options trade can produce.

Options trading is generally less risky than trading in stocks. The options market allows a trader to produce a higher reward to risk ratio than trading stocks. The maximum loss of an option is the amount you paid for the option, however, the potential for profit can be equivalent to the value of rising stock. This idea is explained by the term ‘convexity’.

The beautiful thing about options trading is its ability to have a higher reward to risk ratio because of its ability to be used as a leveraging tool.

There are two ways to calculate reward to risk ratio:

1) by using a risk ratio calculator, or

2) by calculating the equation manually using the risk ratio formula.

The risk ratio formula equals the expected return divided by the standard deviation. Because most options strategies have pre-defined points for maximum risk and reward, calculating the reward to risk ratio is simple.

The Risk Ratio formula = Expected Return/ Standard Deviation

For example, if the strike prices are $20 and $10 and costs $2 to put on, its maximum potential return would be $8, because $10-$2=$8. Let’s say the stock closes at or above $20 upon expiration and its maximum potential loss is the amount you paid for it, which was $2. The reward to risk ratio = 8/2 = 4. This means this spread would have a reward to risk ratio of 4:1. This would be a low-risk trade.

The Reward to Risk Ratio = 8 (expected return) /2 (standard deviation)

Reward to Risk Ratio = 4:1

A 4:1 risk to reward ratio means for every $1,000 a trader could make they risk losing $250.

The reward to risk ratio is subjective for each person; each person has their own style of portfolio risk management. One trader might be comfortable making high risk investments whereas another trader would not. Typically, the higher the investment risk, the greater the potential for profit.

Most options trading investors would think that an acceptable reward to risk ratio is 3:1; some are satisfied with 2:1. The most aggressive traders will only trade using a 4:1 reward to risk ratio.

What does the 4:1 reward to risk ratio mean? This means for every $1,000 you could make you risk losing $250, or for every $15,000 you have the potential to make you risk losing $3,750.
