The Microsoft Excel workbook "Money Management Experiment" allows you to examine the impact the position size has on your equity line. The study might make you think of a similar experiment Ralph Vince did with forty Ph.D.s.

Your task is to choose a position size (the fraction of your current equity you want to bet on the next play).
After entering a new position size, everything runs automatically:
A random generator decides whether you have won or lost.
You will see the result and some statistics immediately in the "Results" pane.
There are 10-15 minutes required for playing the Experiment with 100 trials.

You are required to send the results via e-mail.
Please click here to send me an e-mail and attach the CSV report created by the Money Management Experiment.
If the subject is not created automatically please insert "Money Management Experiment-Report" in the subject line.
