Here's some projections

Seen another way you can wait till you accumulate the necessary 100 pips target return for each level and let the math do the rest...

Thanks PT, I'm sure its very elementary compared to what you are doing in Excel.

I'm very much still a novice

I understood that you should only keep compounding your space until the plan you are executing (or move you are trading) is finished.

Once it's over you should go back to your initial x% risk and start again with a new plan and a new move to trade

Other people like to compound days, weeks, months. depending on the timeframe you trade or quantity of trades over any given period of time

But I really think trading just one move at a time with expanding risk is sensible
