Seems like a weekly target would be better to manage.
1% = 5.1% +0 48Wks
2% = 10.4% +00 48Wks

3 lines = 1% and my target is 63.6 lines per week or 21.2%

My minimum target is 30.3 lines per week.

I think there is a little difference... 21.67% a week is a bit easier than 4% a day.

For ex: one day we had to stop and tie our shoe (missing 4% a day), but the other day train may be running slower (as in much better daily range) , our shoe does not need to be tied when the run starts and we run faster than the train (say 7% and above) 8)

1% a day doubles an acct in 66 days.
Starting with $500 it would take about 3yrs to become a millionaire.

Seems a lot more feasible to be a turtle.
If I start now I'll have a little cash in my pocket when I retire in June of 2019.

Guess its my choice.
Retire broke OR with a little fun money.
Either way. F workin.

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.
