“Not only your returns but also your risk of ruin is dependent on your position sizing.  Your risk exposure determines your long-term results regardless of how good your trading method is.”
— Steve Burns, @SJosephBurns

Proper position sizing is based on your psychological and financial tolerances for risk.  And that differs for each individual trader.
