If I trade on daily or H4 chart I can do one trade a week @5lots and 140 pips stop loss. I doubt

putting it all in one trade is a good plan.

Maybe a 2 + 2 + 1 adding? <<< reduces risk and still allows for big gains

Reduced leverage changes the game, I'll keep thinking about it.

Hopefully my continued posting doesn't interfere with my normal trading activities

or I'll have to cease posting.

I always tell people to do it differently if they see it differently. Dollars, contracts, lines...

are you sure that we are not talking about the same thing?

A macro is just the spacing of the $50 per line wager:

A ONE is 10 pipettes = $50, a TWO is 20 pipettes = $50, a FOUR is 40 pipettes = $50, and so on.

140 pips is:

8.75 SIXTEENS, 17.5 EIGHTS, 35 FOURS, 70 TWOS, or 140 ONES, & each is $50 per line.

A mac of one size is a mac of any other size:

(8.75 x 16)3.125 = $437.50

(8.75 x 08)6.250 = $437.50

(8.75 x 04)12.50 = $437.50

437.50 x 16 = $7,000

You can jump back an forth between SIXTEENS, EIGHTS, and FOURS without calculation;

if you make a line then you know that you have a line to risk.

Just as we would risk so many pips within space we risk so many macs within our total space.

Macros would look like this: (multiple pairs):

Day 1: $3.125/pip x 12 SIXTEENS = +$600

RISK: 2 to 4 macs: -$100 to $200

Day 2: $6.250/pip x 12 EIGHTS = +$600

RISK: 3 to 5 macs: -$150 to $250

Day 3: $12.50/pip x 12 FOURS = +$600

RISK: 4 to 6 macs: -$200 to $300

Day 4: $12.50/pip x 12 FOURS = +$600

RISK: 4 to 6 macs: -$200 to $300

Day 5: $12.50/pip x 12 FOURS = +$600

RISK: 4 to 6 macs: -$200 to $300

-------------------------------------------------

Total: $3,000 (60 ONES).

NOTE: 12 macros is a daily target, not a per trade target.

I might get out half at 7 and then make 28 more for a total of 21 macs or $1,050.

The minimum is 12 because that is 4% and over 5.3 days it is 21.2%

Pips would look like this: (single pair):

RISK: 6 to 8 macs: -$300 to $400

Day 1: $50 x 12 ONES = +$600

Day 2: $50 x 12 ONES = +$600

Day 3: $50 x 12 ONES = +$600

Day 4: $50 x 12 ONES = +$600

Day 5: $50 x 12 ONES = +$600

-------------------------------------------------

Total: $3,000 (60 ONES).

MAX SIZE vs catastrophic loss:

-50 pips for ONES: -$2500 (4.16 days)

-50 pips for macs: -$625 (1.04 days)

-100 pips for ONES: -$5000 (8.33 days)

-100 pips for macs: -$1250 (2.08 days)

-250 pips for ONES: -$12500 (20.83 days, 1 month)

-250 pips for macs: -$3125 (5.20 days, 1 week)
