Scrolled back, I see 30 bucks increase.
Hmmmmmmm

Backflip. :roll:

M.O. says what I'm doing is "just swinging your fists in the dark looking to land a few pips."

Macro scalping is something I MUST DO.

What's wrong with what you did?
You accumulated which is the first step.

In my mind I see that it must go like this:

IDEA
Ride
step aside
pullback
Ride opm
step aside
pullback
ride opm
EXIT 80-100% gain.

The way I've shown "how" to trade is:
Idea
exit
idea
exit
idea
exit
idea
exit
idea
oops, failed idea/new idea exit with first profit
idea
exit
idea
exit 4.x% gain for week

See the difference

If the idea is easy but your mind is worrying about the complexity then you are out of alignment with profit.

You don't know how you are going to reach +0? Join the club!

Focus on doing the 'right things' and everything else falls into place.

The profit is in how you think about trading, not in 'trading' itself.

Turning Pro
The follow-up to the bestseller The War of Art, Turning Pro navigates the passage from the amateur life to a professional practice.

You don’t need to take a course or buy a product. All you have to do is CHANGE YOUR MIND.
—Steven Pressfield

TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT’S NOT EASY.
When we turn pro, we give up a life that we may have become extremely comfortable with. We give up a self that we have come to identify with and to call our own.

TURNING PRO IS FREE, BUT IT DEMANDS SACRIFICE.
The passage from amateur to professional is often achieved via an interior odyssey whose trials are survived only at great cost, emotionally, psychologically and spiritually. We pass through a membrane when we turn pro. It’s messy and it’s scary. We tread in blood when we turn pro.

WHAT WE GET WHEN WE TURN PRO.
What we get when we turn pro is we find our power. We find our will and our voice and we find our self-respect. We become who we always were but had, until then, been afraid to embrace and live out.

as long as you are not suggesting increasing your lot size while keeping your stops small...

when your lot size is small you can be extremely aggressive, but as your size increases there is an ever increasing need to sober up :lol:

PRO brought up the 'macro pip', something that I haven't thought about in quite some time.

You simply reduce your trade size by 90%, multiply your triggers by 10, and then trade a large chart as if you were scalping; a 93 pip gain = +9.3 'macro pips'.
The benefit to trading this way is that you can often have stops equal to 3 or 4 pips & get better R/R ratios. but the downside is a significant loss of time.

You might have 35 risk space and then risk 5 macro pips (50 pips) on trade. If you lose you are down to 30 space & if you win you are up to 40-45 pips.
Now I know you are thinking "why bother, why not just trade the BuyZone"...
1. you have fewer pips at risk: 3-5 instead of 7-10
2. the probability of winning is higher because it is a long term chart
3. you are unlikely to get smacked by a wickdoll; even if there were a 30 pip spike it would be as '3 pips' to you.
4. 8 'macro' pips = 8 'micro pips'; you can trade the BuyZone with your profit without fear of getting whipsawed.
