If you mean by leveraging on bitcoinica - 0%. If you mean by holding long indefinitely, 100%.

I've found that the fear associated with 100% leveraging (going all in) on Bitcoinica is inversely proportional to the amount of time spent hovering over the open position.  You can always buy/sell your base price up/down in reaction to market events.

I risk 0% on "good feelings". I have a system, and over 80% of my Bitcoins are being dedicated to that system. But it's an automatic one, in which no decisions (other than when to feed it more capital) are made based on my own whims.

If there is something that will make Bitcoin succeed, it is growth of utility - greater quantity and variety of goods and services offered for BTC. If there is something that will make Bitcoin fail, it is the culture of naive fools and conmen, the former convinced that BTC is a magic box that will turn them into millionaires, and the latter arriving by the busload to devour them.

ballz are not emotions.

ballz are risk management. i try as hard as i can to not let feelings disturb my system. if you know a better way than mine (don't ever leverage trade more than 20% of your trading balance, do honest research and stick to your conclusions, which reflect the best objectivity i could create) without needing to take strong pharmaceuticals in order to repress feelings...

The fact that it's automated helps. Not having to be the one to push the button = a certain detachment from the decision that makes it easier to not worry when the money moves poorly.
