read through the entire post 3 times

here my questions

If possible can respond with a picture for each question i m not the quickest of cats sorry. Or should that be "mice"

1. what is a "U" like "1U" or "2U", and how is calculated? .
2. can you do a clear picture of produce a Fat cat support.
3. I m also confused about average, i understand the formula but between which points do you calculate it. again if you can do clear picture explaining i will be able to understand it.

BB

I can help except for the "fat cat" thing.

A "U" is a unit. It depends on you what that will be. It can be 1 microlot,
2 lots or whatever.

The average is the midpoint between two equal orders.
Example:
first order long is placed at 1.2500 and you want your average to be at
1.2525 then you would place an equal order at 1.2550.
There are two forces acting upon us: Suffering pushes us forward from behind and pleasures entice us and pull us forward.

\$1000: 5 to 1 = 5,000c = \$0.50

\$1,000 * 0.045 = \$45

\$45 / \$0.50 = 90 pip cat stop.

Think of the 90 pips as a "loss cushion" in comparison to the profit cushions.

Once things start going your way you magnify your gains by using profit cushions.

That is the "loss cushion" that I refer to in the above post.

Forgive my ignorance but does this mean 50 cents per pip and 90 pip stop loss? I always thought 5 to 1 leverage meant \$5 per pip. And 90 pips is a lot. I have been playing with 20 pips and getting stopped out more than I like.
