10 pips a day is pretty easy even during Asia.

Trouble is it takes $1 pips with a $1k acct to make 1%.

That's excessive risk in my book.

Not if you trade macro pips and target 5.2% a week

So ur sayin trade 5 pairs and reel in 50 pips each?

Instead of taking a breakout on one pair targeting 10 pips with a 15-30 pip sl......
Look at a D1 and weekly chart then go for 5 macros on each pair with a 3-5 mp sl?

If that is the case I would never have to risk 3% to make 1%.
@ times I would be risking as little as 0.6% to make 1%.
Most of the time it would be 1:1

Yes I am saying that. MO has been saying that.
Btw macro pips don't have to be 10x they could be 8x :idea:

Risking 3% to make 1% over and over is a tough game to win. You have to be 75% accurate to just break even.

Risking .8% to make 1% is easier, about 44% accuracy.

If you trade at oanda put two exact size orders in when you enter a trade that way you can scale out.

4 weeks with Eights and my trading developed. Usually risking 1% per 4 macro. Yesterday total -8 small pips = +1,75% is Macro Magic.

BTW. I received some "token" so I spent it on amber glasses, I'm not a eyewear fan (including sunglasses) but I'm impresed.

Any time I ever put two exact order sizes I'm limited by fifo for manual exits.
It the trades are 1 unit difference I can close the trades manually "in any order I want".
If I use exact size but use a LIMIT order to exit it will close them "in any order I want.".

Well if they are the same size at the same price it doesn't matter which one is closed so fifo wont matter(from a trading standpoint). If you do add ins then for sure 1 unit different.

Point being that scaling in and out is helpful and with a single order you are limited

I have to put everything in one place for the next thread.

(%target / pips)accountSize = $/pip
Divide $/pip by macro size.

Stop Loss in Lines:
01) 6 to 8
02) 5 to 6
03) 4 to 5
04) 4 to 5
06) 3 to 4
08) 3 to 4
12) 2 to 3
16) 2 to 3
24) 1.5 to 2
32) 1.5 to 2
A line beyond the maximum is as far as I would push it.
