Re: question for institutional day/short term traders

You can use stop loss orders to quantify the amount you're risking in a rough sense (and then this can get more precise when you factor in your likely slippage if using a market order).

For macro-level risk management you can set some limits on the maximum position sizes traders are allowed to take on, as well as a maximum amount they are allowed to lose per day.
