Nothing from arrow to arrow said to buy.
The chart is there, but what you are really trading is money.
+2 lines twice is +56.25% size and if I do hit a run where I make 16 lines then that is an extra 9 lines of profit.
Imagine targeting 20 pips but each time you reach it your broker credits you more pips than you have made:
+20, +25, +31, +39, +48, +61, +76, +95
Stacking: +395 pips
Not stacking: +160 pips
Difference: 235 pips (+11.75 trades winning trades)
Of the 395 pips you are risking 98.7 pips (your stop is not 98.7 pips, it is worth 98.7 pips) on one trade; that might seem like a lot but even if
you were to lose your next 2 trades you would still be up more money than the person who is not stacking.
I'm just risking lines and making lines; I do whatever I feel that I can get away with using acceptable levels of risk.
If the idea is based on H1- then more often than not I am going to 'exit too early'
If the idea is based on H4 then I am going to catch a nice run or if the idea is that of the daily+ then the pip gain will be epic.
All that I am saying is be smart without being too rigid.
Every trade is simply the risk weighed against the reward.
Hold up a minute.
I've missed a few years. LOL
So your trading 1:1 or 2:2?
Where does the 54% come from with 4 lines in two trades?
Pretty sure I can trade 2:2 easily.
