Risk & Money Management

Hi Anna, I am Fernando from Sydney, Australia. I only started to get into the trading stuff. While I was researching on risk management I came across your site. Thank you and great stuff!! Congratulations!! My question is about the 1% risk per trade rule. In your examples you are not considering fees or taxes. However if I have a capital for trading of 50000$ each trade should be of 500$ but the broker alone charges 20$. I have researched and that is the lowest I could get. Therefore Every time I trade I do I am loosing 40$ (20$ to buy and 20$ to sell, more if I start shorting). Only to get back the fees I need to earn 10% per trade if I only risk 500$. Do you have any comments on that? Thank you for the help Regards.
