### Re: Three Charts

It is so much easier than you are making it.

Let's say that you are trading FOURS at \$1 per pip & you make 2 macros.
Looking left, under the PIP column & in the same row, you see that you are trading the equivalent of \$4 per pip; which means that your two macros are worth \$8.
2 FOURS is worth \$1 x (2 x 4) = \$8
2 TWOS is worth \$2 x (2 x 2) = \$8
If you gain 2 FOURS then you have exactly 2 TWOS or 2 of any other macro or even 2 pips at \$4.

Two of something is two of something else, there is no need to pull out your calculator.
If you make 2 SIXTEENS at \$.25 then you have made 2 PIPS at \$4...that is four doubles, but you can still do it in your head.

EDIT: if you gain 12 macros at the equivalent of \$4 PIPS and you want to bump it up to \$4.80 PIPS then:
(4 / 4.8)12 = 10
and then we check ---> \$4 x 12 = \$48, \$4.80 x 10 = \$48.
So your 12 macros is worth 10 macros at the next PIP level.

(4 / 4.12 = 10
and then we check ---> \$4 x 12 = \$48, \$4.80 x 10 = \$48.
So your 12 macros is worth 10 macros at the next PIP level.

Thanks MightyOne for posting, much appreciated.

For those interested, a Youtube-video
I found very inspiring:

What do you see or, more importantly, what are you writing down?

Even I do not know what will happen next, I can highly suspect this or that but I must trade what I see; be it on the charts or a construct of my imagination.

It is good to ask questions and poke a stick at the limits of your understanding, but it is not good to get hung up one things that are not important.

Trading is mostly the stability of your mind, position sizing, & money management.
Trading is the ability to see & to plan & to act; it is not crystal balls, precision entries, and ego stroking.

Ideas & action, not rules and confirmation or, as the guy in the YouTube video says, "trade it, don't date it".
