### Re: THE MACRO PIP

Just a reminder that a Macro Pip is 10 pips...so \$0.50/pip = \$5/mp

If you use the same size as you do on small charts then you will probably blow up.

We can reduce from 3 to 2, (3/2), at 2 mp for a BE at 1 mp above the trigger.
We can reduce from 5 to 3, (5/3), at 1.5 mp for a BE at 1 mp above the trigger.

When you are not watching small charts then the very first step is to reduce your size
and lock in a small profit.

After you lock in a profit you can target macro pips as you see fit...
just don't relapse and start calling 4 mp 40 pips; keep your head in the game.

So scalping for 10 pips with 55 sl is
1 mp and 5.5 sl
And if I want 5-10 MP's I would have to use a 55 mp sl (550 pips)

No wonder I can't make money scalping AJ. hahahahaa

Yes, 55 pips is 5.5 MP.

If you reduce your size from 3 to 2 then every 1.5 MP = 1 MP & if you reduce your
size from 2 to 1 then every 3 MP is 1 MP.

So yeah, the idea is to eliminate risk and then catch the larger moves

If you want 5-10 MP then you need a momentum candle on the daily chart, price to close,
and then you take profit at the extreme.

Comparing a 5m to a daily chart it looks like x10 is about
Right for the multiplier. If you are trading many pairs it could
Be fairly profitable although +0 seems unlikely. Would you
Risk a higher % of your account per trade since its a daily?

On never mind I went back to page one and you answered
The question.
