JBL Risk Manager

Use the JBL Risk Manager to Manage Your Risk, Simplify Your Trading,
Save Time & Money, Minimize losses & Maximize Your Profits  


Every successful trader and investor knows the importance of a proven trading plan or system and understands that it requires both entry and exit rules and the discipline to follow them.

Unfortunately many traders focus almost all of their attention on what to trade and when. To survive it’s also important to have and follow a sound, easy to understand, Money & Risk Management plan.

JBL Risk Manager will automatically calculate how many shares to trade, where your Initial Stop Loss exit price level should be - to help you protect your trading capital - as well as your Trailing/profit stop exit price -  to protect your profits.

Now you can remove the emotion and guess work from your trading with this sophisticated Money & Risk Trade Management tool.

" ...Leads to Added Staying Power"


"The JBL Risk Manager is more than a number-crunching machine.

With its many automated features, the software promotes an objective decision making approach to controlling trading risk and preserving trading capital, which leads to added staying power."


Dear Trader,

Do you know you can improve your returns - without winning more trades ? 

Trading skill counts, but Money and Risk Management gives you an important edge as they allow you to:

Accurately know how many stocks to buy
o Calculate your trade and portfolio risk before you enter the trade
Know exactly WHEN to sell
o Capitalize on a rising market
Protect your funds when the bears take over
o Use risk management to improve returns

Protect capital and profits

o Understand portfolio diversity to improve performance

Ask any experienced profitable trader and they will agree that all these factors above make a key difference between trading survival and consistent success.



Professional Money and Risk Management strategies, used correctly and together,
will be your foundation to trading success

Essentially, Money Management tells you how many shares to trade at any given time and Stop placement is where you must accept you have made the wrong decision, close that trade and move on. It is a defensive concept that keeps you in the game to play another day. Don’t confuse Money Management with Stop placement. Stop placement does not answer the question, how much?

Risk Management is the difference between success and failure when trading shares. It refers to Stop placement and will minimize any losses (note you WILL have losses regardless) but will also maximize any profits and this stop is called a Trailing, Maintenance or Profit Stop.

Money Management optimizes capital usage. Few have the ability to view their portfolios as a whole. Even fewer traders and investors make the move from a defensive or reactive view of risk, in which they measure risk to avoid losses, to an offensive or proactive posture in which risks are actively managed for a more efficient use of capital. The JBL Risk Manager will help you do all of the above.

The JBL Risk Manager is a sophisticated Money & Risk Management calculator that is fully customisable, designed to give you:

  • A simple step-by-step method of keeping your emotions in check
  • Remove the guess work from your trading
  • Help monitor your performance accurately
  • Simple to understand reporting and tracking of each trade easily as it integrates with your MetaStock data.


How Can the JBL Risk Manager Help Me?

The JBL Risk Manager is a Professional Money Risk Management program for users of Metastock and  those charting programs which use Metastock formula (incl. JB Premium Data).

It will automatically calculate your:

  • Trade Size
  • Stop Loss price
  • Trailing Stop
  • Break-even price and
  • Much more, based on the last close.

Alternatively, you can also enter a Technical Stop (e.g as selected using Jim Berg’s methods) in the ‘Enter Stop’ Column - as explained in the Help file provided with the JBL Risk Manager and with the Free Trial (see below).

The latest version now includes, with permission from The Van Tharp Institute, performance values such as R-Multiples, R-Expectancy and System Quality Number.

Use the JBL Risk Manager to optimize your trading capital but still minimize your Risk.

In addition, combined within the one program is the ability for you to include:

  • Your Trade journal entries for each trade
  • Performance reporting of each trade and each portfolio and
  • Multiple portfolios which can be broken up into sectors or groups and be independently set with variable parameters for back testing.

An effective Trading System needs to be simple with both Entry and Exit rules but almost everyone concentrates all of their time and effort on what to BUY!

To survive as a successful Stock / Share Market Trader or Investor, it's far more important to follow a proven Money & Risk Management Plan.

From today understand that you are no longer a Trader or Investor - you are a Risk Manager.

"..would have saved me many thousands of dollars through the GFC."

Joseph, the designer of JBL Risk Manager, has been very helpful and it's all coming together now and yes the need for such a program is critical.

Wish I was this educated when I first started trading, would have saved me many thousands of dollars through the GFC and beyond too.

That was the time when I did my "apprenticeship" - welcome to the sharemarket eh?


Feb 2010 Leederville, WA

"Lee and I just had to write and say that we have been using your JBL Risk Manager software for several months now and we are delighted with its ease of use and the powerful simplicity it delivers into our hands when we consider keeping or selling shares. We have now grown well away from our beginnings of wondering how much to invest, buying shares and wondering when to take a profit or hanging onto them as they lost value and hoping they would "come good" again.

Your Risk Manager program has protected profits for us and has signalled the time to quit an unprofitable situation. Our involvement in the share market is now business like and successful. Congratulations on translating your skill & knowledge into such an effective yet simple program."

"In my opinion JBL RM is a top product that should be a mandatory tool for any trader or investor."

 "I have been using the JBL Risk Manager (RM) for several years and recently updated to the latest version.  

I would not purchase a stock without entering the purchase details into the RM first.  It is invaluable for position sizing and money management.  

Similarly I maintain all sale details for each of my three portfolios using JBL RM.  

I have read many books on share trading, most of which contained some detail on how to manage risk. 

I am confident that by using JBL RM that I am undertaking the necessary management of risks associated with capital appropriation, open positions and sector constraints, with the added bonus of stop loss alerts.  

In my opinion JBL RM is a top product that should be a mandatory tool for any trader or investor.  I also use the Van Tharp Expectancy and SQL performance measures you have built into the product and these are excellent for monitoring that my trading system is continuing to perform well." 

 'Techie' Info

Mac OS X users with Intel-based systems can run JBL Risk Manager as a Windows application with the help of virtual machine software (e.g. VMware Fusion). Another option for Intel-based Mac users is to use dual booting, i.e. Mac OS X and Windows (Boot Camp utility assists in installing Windows XP or Windows Vista on Intel-based Macintosh computers). You must also have access to a MetaStock data service or database.

The JBL Risk Manager is the perfect compliment to MetaStock® and is also available to all users of MetaStock format data such as JB Premium Data.

The USA magazine ‘Technical Analysis of Stocks and Commodities’ has been a valued well respected resource for many years. In 2019 they wrote: '.....We  congratulate Joseph and his JBL Risk Manager for being awarded ‘Honorable Award for Portfolio Management’ in 2016, 2018 and again recently in 2019.'



Your Personal Guarantee

Joseph Barrington-Lew, designef of the JBL Risk Manager, writes:

I want to take any doubts or indecision you might have at this point, out of your head. Seriously, if you don't take action, you may NEVER improve Money and Risk Management... You may continue to struggle for years more - probably with your portfolio out of balance and taking far too many risks.

That's why I've decided to offer you a 100% unconditional money back guarantee.

You have a full 30 days to review my program and see for yourself as you get control of your Money and Risk. If you are not satisfied with my software, your money will be immediately refunded. It's that simple!.

You might ask why I am foolish enough to offer a money back guarantee. Well, basically I am assuming that you are a trustworthy individual that would not try to take advantage of me unless you were legitimately dissatisfied. However, I am so confident in this program that I know you'll be satisfied once you see your Money and Risk Management improve.

That's my promise to you! I'm genuinely interested in helping you achieve your financial goals and improving your financial future forever. Just look at some of the testimonials above from my clients, and you can see that this program actually delivers on everything I'm promising you.
