Good to see you still around. 90 percent of my trades are 15 pip sl or less. As I grow in "space" if you will I am more liberal with my emergency sl. BUT, once in a trade, if my price action tells me reversal, I close the trade no matter what. Its not worth wishing for it to come back. Had that candle your referencing had closed anywhere down below the zline, I woulld have been outta there. Hope that answers your question. I dont pay attention to R:R anymore, I look at s/d and take what I can get. I may have 3-4 small losers...like 3-6 pips each..then when I hit my trade, usually pull in 20-40 which covers all the losses plus some. I have been starting small with lots now and working on a stacking technique a friend of mine showed me. Basics are stacking on lot sizes every 5 pips when I get the run. So in short my sl's vary but they are for emergencies and based on how much space i have. I dont let my trades run to my stops unless im not watching. Zlines tell me when im wrong.
Then I get out.

Yep, I'm still around. I got caught up in some side projects, and then one day realized/remembered that if I'm not pursuing trading, then it means that I'm just looking to live off of salary. So I just had to figure out how to rebalance my time.

Sorry, with the new take pic on mt4 it always scrolls the chart right so you couldn't see my notes. The blue line is a 30 min entry line and the brown line is an hourly line. Im long, staying long if it breaks the hourly line.
