Why can't I ever figure out what MightyOne is saying?

Well think of it as a box where your position in the market is at your stop (bottom of box) and the space between the current price and the bottom of the box is the space that you are managing.

Now lets assume that you enter with 3 lots and exit for a 10 pip loss.

In MO notation I would write it 3/0:

Since 3/0 = 0, there is no adjustment to the size of your box and thus no space was managed.

3/2 would multiply your remaining pips (if any) by 1.5.
3/1 would multiply your remaining pips by 3.

If you exited for -6 you would have 4 pips left:

(3/2) * 4 = 6 pips
(3/1) * 4 = 12 pips

Since you determined that you need at least 10 pips of space you would enter your next trade with 1 lot giving you 12 pips of space.

Lets say that you enter with 1 lot and make 5 pips:

(1/2) * 17 gives you 2 lots and 8.5p of space.

When your only option is to cut the space by 50%+ then you are not in a good position.

Had you 2 lots to work with, you would have plenty of size after the adjustment.

(2/3) * 17 gives you 3 lots and 11.3p of space.

Predicting your plight ahead of time you may have started with 2 lots instead of 3 for 3/2 giving you 15 pips.

Losing 6 pips would bring you down to 9

Gaining 5 would bring you up to 14

And increasing to 3 lots would then leave you with 9p of space to manage

Your position in the market would be 9 pips from the last adjustment.

Start from the beginning..

What are you trying to do?
What makes this mousetrap better?
What objective are you trying to obtain?
I see your terminology above, and I understand it, but I don't really understand what you are trying to show with it..

And YES, you are correct, nobody asked me..
